Thin malt and a metallic aftertaste made this beer a least favorite Octoberfest for me.

500ml bottle. 04/15. Pours a bright, golden amber colour with a frothy, off white head which reduced to a collar and left a trace of lacing. Pleasantly malty aroma with a hint of grassy hops. Mildly sweet with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Smooth, medium bodied and quite easy to drink. Decent enough but didn’t leave me craving more.

didn’t like this as much as some other oktoberfests; malty nose typical but the hops didn’t really match what I was hoping for

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber with a beige head cover, sreaks of lace. Taste is caramel malt that adds a carbonation edge on the swallow, moving smoothly through the finish with minimal hops. A decent Marzen, good example of the style.

Pours a brown colour, taste is quite malty with some carmelisation, not bad and different to what I was expecting

Bottle, Pours clear amber medium tan head. Aroma a bit rusty, also some caramel malt and grassy hops. Taste medium-high sweetness. Medium body, thinner texture and a little sticky, light sweet and light bitter finish. Overall nice Oktoberfest

sawbuck (374) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Rich aromao of roasty caramel, and some hints of raisin. Crystal clear deep gold/amber with a huge fluffy white head you can rest a bottle cap on. Muted sweet caramel up front. Bitterness comes in quick, peppery and average in strength. Sligtly water mouth feel, Finsihes rather bland.

Corney keg at Evernote Oktoberfest. Aroma and taste is straw, caramel, burnt sugar. Ultimately not much going on.

J_man (738) - Tustin, California, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Nice, rich German lager aroma. Beautiful crystal clear amber/copper color with a foamy, long-lasting white head. Excellent biscuity caramel malt Oktoberfest taste. Well balanced and restrained noble hops. Lightly creamy texture with a fullness that’s still easy to drink and refreshing. Leaves a nice toasty and slightly bitter taste behind. Definitely one of the best German Oktoberfest beers out there.
