Nice clear brown-copper color. Little or no head. Malty aroma and flavor with an average body that could be a little better. Okay for a fairly available beer, but I much prefer Paulaner’s Oktoberfest. I think the reviewers below who described it as metallic definitely got a bad bottles, and I would encourage them to try it again.

Decent, with nice amber color and full hed from the tap. Hops nose and taste are nice, but not too strong. Overall very drinkable but not very exciting.

O’ Zapft Is! Had to run out and get an Oktoberfest today...the offical start of the festival. Just need some hendel to go with this delicious brew. Sweet malty aroma. Chewy white head that lasted. Strong malt flavor at the start finishing w/ a nice hop edge. I just need a Mass and some lederhosen and I’m back...

Bottle. Poured caramel amber with a foamy cream head. Aroma is slightly sweet and malty. Taste is similar - clean cereal grain and caramel malt. Finish is slightly bitter and spicy. Very nice fall seasonal.

Deep, orange-red in color. Scent of nutmeg. Has a weird taste like dried blood; metallic, dry, salty, coppery. With all these elements it is still smooth and the malt flavors come through nicely. Although the initial taste is like sucking on a penny!

Pretty good and not quite as malty as some of the other Oktoberfest brews that I have tried. Drinkable and decent, but not a favorite of mine. Go for the wheat beer.

Already in the mood for great fall seasonal brew, already kicked started with pumpkin ale, not time to start with a good, authentic German Oktoberfest. Having some German blood in me, I make it mandatory every season and and at least a few times in other parts of the year to have a real, independent German brew. Seeing as I haven’t had this one yet, I picked it up. Enjoy by date: 05/2012 Pours a nice light amber/copper.orange, enabling you to see through it. Very weak head, very little to no lacing. Light aromas of grain(s), malt and grassiness, with faint tea-like scents. Pretty mediocre on the nose. Grains, some tea-like and maybe light nuts land on the tongue. Malt is present, but less noticeable than it should be. Low carbonation. Body is rather thin. It’s probably the least Oktoberfest Marzen I’ve had to date. Less malty, thin body and weak head and lacing hurts the credentials of this brew. it’s decent, but you can do a lot better. Many great German Oktoberfest brews out there, this one is a little less.

This is a great Octoberfest. The best I’ve had yet. Very pleasant to drink. Spices and malt in the taste. Quite good.

Deep caramel hue. Solid, malty, full body Oktoberfest Marzen. Delicious. Slow, low malt aftertaste. Very good.
