DYCSoccer17 (3603) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Almost a sweet honey brown sugary aroma on this one. Maybe a touch of roasted malts. Orangey-copper transparent color with an off-white head. Slightly sweet malty caramel notes with some toasty malts. This gets sweeter as it goes on. Not bad.

argo0 (12927) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 25, 2004
Sparkling light amber body with big off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, molasses, caramel, some toasty. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, molasses, light earthy, faint herbal. Finish has very mild bitterness. Light-medium body with a hint of stickiness. Ok, but a bit too sweet to me.

IMtheOptimator (1164) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - OCT 20, 2004
Poured amber/orange with a medium white head. Spicy, malty aroma. Taste is maltier than other oktoberfests I have with pumpkin spice and a slight hint of hops. Very drinkable and smooth.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Amber colored with a small head and light carbonation. Delightful aroma-barley, bread, caramel, slightly toasty. Medium bodied, round, sweet caramel malty flavor with a good underlying hoppiness, slightly fruity with plum and toffee notes. Medium finish, dryish, refined, a superb Ofest.

I had this last night on Draft at a Octoberfest party. Unfortunately I had to drink it out a plastic cup but really didn’t mind because it was free and pretty damn tasty!
Poured a nice shadowy amber body and a cream colored head. The senses noted sweet suggestions of somewhat smoky molasses, plums, apricots raisins, but mostly notes of toffee and caramel. Truly picked up on a large dose of brown sugar… A very drinkable Marzen.

Very well done. Malts and hops are in a very good balance. Nice body... not at all watery or metallic like Spaten.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 14, 2004
Amber color, with a lacey, tannish head. Highly aromatic : spicy, cloves, cinnamon, herbal. Malty, but not overmuch. Some sweetness, but, again, just enough. Delicate hop, solid body, slight sharpness and a coppery edge in the mouthfeel. Very delicious.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2004
Amber color with a long lasting medium white head. Clear. Lots of lacing. Malty aroma. Not too sweet. Some caramel flavor. Malty but again not sweet. Medium body. crisp nice

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 11, 2004
Clear amber body, medium clumping off-white head. Spicy hops aroma with faint metallic notes. Malty, toasty body with caramel and earthy hops; metallic and biscuity finish. Clean mouthfeel. One of the better Oktoberfests I’ve sampled of late.
