UPDATED: NOV 18, 2013 Slightly spicy scent. Clear golden colour. Very crisp and drinkable and a mild sweetness, but without much discernable flavour. Lively carbonation and medium to light body. Not sure I?d buy again

Quite a refreshing, drinkable marzen. Light, some bitter and spice in the finish and a fairly light malt flavor.

Draft - Grains, honey and lemon. Fizzy yellow with a foamy white head. Very light with lots of grain and a hint of lemon. Easy drinking.

Wittales (632) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Appearance was clear deep gold with diminishing creamy off white 1 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are sweet toffee, caramel pils malt driven, not much else. Taste is lighter sweeter malts than nose with a touch of herbal, spicey hops for balance. Palate was smooth creamy CO2 with a light body, average length sweet, spicey with a hint of dry mineral finish. An easy drinker, but...

Bottle from Blue Max, orangish brown clear pour. Aroma of caramel, malt and grain. Taste is a little grain and caramel but fades, very light body, it's alright. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Moneyman083 (5) - - SEP 20, 2013 does not count
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2013 Very mild. Not much of an after taste. Goes down easy. Overall a great octoberfest. Had this on tap in Hagerstown, MD. Wife loved it as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Bitterness is the dominant character on this brew, not what I think of with Oktoberfest, but the deep amber color, thin white head, combined with the brown sugar notes and malt undertones reminded me of one. Flavor was bitter and monotone, bubbly, and lively to the palate. It was ok.

prawlie (1132) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2013
Pint on draught at York Tap in 2012. Golden, fizzy, with a good frothy head. Hopped and malt aroma. Tastes bitter, malty with a touch of corned beef. Has substance to it, but not the most exciting of beers. Actually a bit disappointing, especially considering what else the Tap has to offer. But not bad.

DavidWoodruff (390) - Windsor, California, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Copper with a white head. Both the aroma and flavor are centered around malt. Slight roasted malt character in the finish which is dryer than expected. Classic Oktoberfest!

sbanach (222) - Alabama, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Low malt aroma, lighter amber color, but darker than the spayed oktoberfest. Low hop taste, malty, toastiness on the finish. Finishes dry, very drinkable and tasty. Would like to have more of these. My favorite German Oktoberfest if the 4 German Oktoberfest beer we sampled at my homebrew club meeting..
