red-amber color with a thin tan head; the taste is somewhat acidic, but with barely any bitterness; not as spicy as other Oktoberfests

daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - MAR 26, 2004
Outstanding brew! Nothing over the top or WOWing, but overall just a supurb brew. Pours an amber color with a medium head. Sweet malty arome and a mild malt flavor that washes away smooth and softly. This would be a great session beer.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 15, 2004
Amber; refined, articulate head. Buttermilk biscuits, butter and honey in the aroma. Spicy bitteness in the flavor with slightly agglutinated malt stickiness. Concise yeast snippets with a very light touch of diacetyl. Delicious and sophisticated.

BBB63 (6234) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 12, 2004
Amber hue with small head and minimal lace. The aroma hints of bread and biscuit, toasted malts, light caramel, honey, aromatic hops, and orange/apple fruit. The taste starts of sweet bread and caramel malt. A does of biiterness and acidic nature follows, a touch fruity. The finish is muddled and too short for style. Some bitterness but doesn't shine. The mouthfeel is smooth and refreshing enough. A good beer but lacks any standout characteristic.

sloth (2554) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - FEB 29, 2004
Small offwhite head,poof! Gone in a flash. No lacing to speak of. Clear amber/orange color. Malty, dusty nose, doughy. Medium body. Medium sweet malt flavors, breadyness. Finish is medium sweet. An unoffensive, clean drinkin lager.

ruffian (149) - montvale, New Jersey, USA - FEB 12, 2004
Redish color with a thin white head. A little bit of hop aroma mixed in with rich maltiness. A tiny hint of bitterness in the taste is quickly overcome by the malt flavors.

biermonk (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 27, 2004
On tap at Summits Wayside Tavern-Poured a redish color with a nice thick head...Some nice caramel tones accompanied by some maltiness that was overall very nicely balanced. A good Marzen.

Shag (2647) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JAN 24, 2004
Pleasent malty and bread aroma. Appearance is a reddish orange with little head. Flavor is well rounded with a slight bitterness to accompany the sweet flavor. There is some caramel and citrus in there. A little less flavor than some Marzens Ive had but a good example of the style.

GEOBRAU (188) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 20, 2004
Bottle: drinkable , a bit watery though the malts were full and sweet. I would like to try this on tap.
