The color is amber with a small white head. I smell caramel, malt, and med hops. Flavor is the same with wheat and fruits. Great drinking beer!

Wonderful Oktoberfest!! A little more flavorful than Spatan, but not quite as enjoyable...

Bottle. A nice copper colored pour. Aroma of toasted malts, and a sweet "woody" aroma. A nice toffe flavor with a good toasted malt and a slight biscuit? A very good oktoberfest in my opinion.

This beer began the third round of my home beer tasting tournament: Traditional Germans- featuring Marzens and unique wheat beer styles. This lager was a very deep amber, slightly dark for a marzen, ruby and reflective, with a large, joyously frothy head. There is strong caramel and toffee in the aroma, due in large to the Munich malt, as well as surprisingly fruity notes of cherries and honey, leaving this brew feeling heavily toasted and appetizing. The body is firm, yet smoothly subtle with slight smoke, overripe fruit, and dark burnt malt overtones. Delicious and easy to drink all day long, this is a wonderful ruby/amber lager with which to celebrate good times- whether it be the largest beer festival in the world or a backyard beer tasting. The finish is brisk, stickly sweet, and ends slightly dry with a hint of grassy hallertau hops.

Copper amber color with a good frosty tan head, that settled down leaving a good lace on top. Floral malty aroma. Caramel malt up front, but I felt the finish was thin and light leaving me wanting more.

thin bodied....everything about this beer was METALLIC. the color--copper. the aroma--tin. the taste--aluminum, albeit somewhat malted/smoked aluminum. i had such high hopes for this beer! alas, i would not buy this again.

Smells malty, cereal. Doughy, yeasty. Pours beatiful reddish brown with a thick creamy head. Cloudy with normal carbonation. Tastes fabulous, light and sweet with a strong bready, woody, yeasty taste. Superb example of what a marzen should be. Easily the best I’ve ever had.

reminded me of Oktoberfest in Munchen. The apperance had Reddish tint, very clear in fact. The taste was better than expected. My overall impression was: the beer was very good; the alcohol was very well hidden and it very drinkable.

Still one of the best Oktoberfests i’ve had. I love the orangy color and the strong bold hoppy flavor. I could drink this all year round.
