A phenomenal beer that any beer lover would enjoy! I really can’t say enough about the quality of this beer but I would say it is the best out of the tap. So sit back and enjoy this fine brew.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
(bottle) Bottle opened with a delightful pop. Rich caramel and yeast aroma.
Mid amber colour. Fine white head which laced the glass.
Flavours of sweet toffee and almond. Hops are present but not overpowering. Finish is not heavy, despite the initial caramel hit. This is definitely in my top 3 Märzens. Prost!

This is a pretty solid Oktoberfest, a step above what I had so far in the States, not as thin...nice malty flavor, fruits, caramel, goes down smooth, very drinkable..

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
There’s a light malty grainy aroma that’s barely noticeable. The color is dark amber with a minimal off-white head and almost no lacing. A moderate amount of bitterness stays on the tongue for a while. The texture is a thin and lively with a slight bitter metallic finish. Overall this is refreshing, but not very memorable.

pours a deep gold w/ a small off-white head. clear, and good carbonation. Getting som toasted bread, and caramel on the nose. No hints of hops. Medium body, good carbonation. Smooth. Slight hop bitterness in the finish. Tasting nicely toasted malts, bready, and caramel followed by a small a small amount of hop bitterness. I’m liking this beer.

The bottle I have is "Original Oktoberfest" which came out of a sampler box. The color is typical Octoberfest with a rich carmel color. Has a bitterness that I don’t care for as it finishes.

(bottled) Rich malt aroma and brilliantly clear dark amber color. Wonderful toasty caramel malt presence with a plum fruit note and a lightly bitter hoppiness. Lingering sweet raisin finish. Superb!

2nd Oktoberfest of the season. Prefer it much more so over the Sam Adams version. Deep amber color with pleasant hoppy mouthfeel.
