On tap at the Castle on King. Reddish, with little head. Fairly light and easy drinking, not quite as much flavour as I expected, but nicely balanced.

A world class Oktoberfest-Marzen. Beautiful Hallertauer hop aroma with a carmelly malt nose interplays with each other. A smooth texture on first sip with a rich toasted malt flavor and just the right amount of hop bitterness. The amber/orange color makes it even more appetizing for a fall day.

Jessop (207) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2011
A rich vienna red in colour, The foam is initialy dense but fades to nothing quickly. Its light to medium carbonation is only just acceptable. The nose provides pleasant floral hop notes and the flavour is quite malty slightly sweet and a hint of yeasty breadiness presents itself.

Kodos (205) - USA - OCT 25, 2001
Good consistent head, rich amber color, definate caramel taste with subtle Hallertau spiciness. The few I had left a metallic aftertaste that has been noted by others. Not sure if its the batch I got, but its the reason this beer is not a 4.

mrnutsnbolts (204) - Berkeley, - OCT 20, 2005
Pours a burnt orange color with very little head that quickly thins to a ring around the rim. Smells very sweet and caramelly with lots of malts. Tastes sweet, malty, nutty, and slightly bitter.Kind of thin feeling in my mouth, but still tasty. It could be more complex.

Pours amber yellow. Smell of lemon drops, menthol, hay. It is like a lager but more intense flavour. More lemon and a kind of medicinal taste. Is quite refreshing and smooth. Not a boring lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beerking99 (199) - Virginia, USA - OCT 14, 2003
One of the few true O'fests left. Not watered down to meet the perceived tastes of the majority of attendees, Americans. Beautiful amber-gold, crystal clear, with a pure white head. Nice aroma of toasted malt, with hints of honey. Aroma is a little faint. Great malty/toasted flavor, with a firm but gentle noble hop backbone. Fades to a great balance in the tail...leaving only one thought: MORE!

beerluvindave (194) - Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2005
Nice old-world German style Oktoberfest brew, a bit of hoppy-ness, but balanced well with other flavors

Keg_Juggler (193) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 23, 2010
nice copper hue with short lived head, low carbonation, nice malt backbone that dominates what hops are there, aroma of caramel, bread, and basement - a decent marzen
