’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.

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.

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.

Bottle: drinkable , a bit watery though the malts were full and sweet. I would like to try this on tap.

yinzerbeernut (180) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Amber clear pour with a ever so slight off white head that is quick to disappear. It is clear with slight carbonation. There is a grainy malt smoke flavor on nose for this light bodied marzen. There is a slight crisp bitterness on mouth along with a soft malt taste.

Bonster (180) - Jersey Shore, New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Bottle with friends. Pours a burnt copper in color with a medium size off white head. Aroma is bready and malty. Flavors of toasted malt, honey, and a hint of fruit back up the minor hop presence in the finish.

2007 - Version (Per bottle made 6/07) What a beauty... pours a reddish amber with golden highlights and a lasting ivory head One of the classics - malt complexity ranging from sweet base malt to some caramel notes to a toasty note. Taste outdoes the malt complexity in the nose: has a lot of bread and base (munich/vienna) malt with a lovely honeyed note balanced with a nicely restrained hop bitterness and mild flavor. For all the malt richness manages to finish clean and slightly dry without being cloying. The soft creaminess makes it a treat.... Overall: Absolutely delicious... wish to taste it at the source on tap
