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!

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

’06 batch.Sweet roasted malt taste. Not much hops to balance the flavour. I pick up this brew every year,and every year it is more watery.30% of all beer brewed in Munich is consumed at the annual Octoberfest.

jann3 (190) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2014
Pours clear amber with a creamy off-white head. Sweetish aroma with notes of malts and hint of caramel. Taste is sweetish too with notes of grain and caramel. Finushes with a hint of bitterness. Quite soft CO2. Smooth but slightly watery mouthfeel. (0,5 l bottle, best before 04/15).

ivan9856 (189) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - OCT 23, 2005
The longneck bottle pours a dark amber body with an average off white head that fades rapidly. The nose is heavy on the sweet, caramel malt side with a slight hazelnut-like aroma and mild hops. Palate entry is sweet, rounding out in the mid-palate with roasted Munich malts and some mild buttery nut flavors. Medium bodied and average carbonation. Finish is short-lived and lightly drying.
Earlier Rating: 12/2/2003 Total Score: 3.8
This lager pours clear and light amber in color. There is a small and quickly dissipating tan-colored head and a sweet malty nose. The initial palate is quite sweet, but rounds out nicely to a flavorful, caramelized malted barley and full-bodied mid-palate. I tasted notes of raisins and honey. The finish is appropriately drying but mild and not bitter. I would probably prefer more hops in the finish, but this is a classic Bavarian Märzen style Oktoberfest lager.

I.C.suds (189) - Da U.P. eh?, Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2003
Bottled. Thin off white head sits atop a coppery orange brew. Slightly carmel aroma with a very sweet malt upfront, almost sour yeastyness and a crisp Hallertau finish.
