Cloudy amber color, smoky and malty, medium bodied. Bubbly, delicious. Really wanna go to oktoberfest to try the authentic if its said to be better than this.

Bottle, bought @ Reading Beer Festival. Opens with a gentle fission. Pours clear dark amber. Gentle aroma from the hops. Flavour is deep caramel, light almost cherry fruits. Marzipan? Low bitterness, followed by lingering faint sweetness with slight bitterness. Lovely beer.

This is probably my favorite Oktoberfest beer out of Germany. Terrific clarity, light body, sweet and malty aroma and taste. A bit "bready" taste with a very smooth finish. This is the beer other Oktoberfests need to be compared to. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BBD 05/15 (Original Oktoberfest version). Clear medium amber pour with just a touch of ruby. Exceptional head, lacing and retention. Light nose of biscuit with a touch of caramel and an almost imperceptible noble hop note. Almost medium bodied with a nice almost creamy texture. Above normal carbonation with a very good amount of effervescence on the finish. The exceptional flavor profile is superbly balanced, complex and very flavorful (intensity). It begins with an effervescent explosion of malt - mostly biscuit over a light caramel sweetness. In the middle, a light hop bitterness and noble hop flavor predominate. In the somewhat crisp finish as the bitterness fades, comes the final effervescent burst of lingering hop flavor. This one just edged Ayinger out as my favorite import.

Probably the pick of the brews at the Weiß’n. While many of the others have stooped to serving colored Helles, I was able to enjoy this very nice Märzen at the Oktoberfest.

A phenomenal beer that any beer lover would enjoy! I really can’t say enough about the quality of this beer but I would say it is the best out of the tap. So sit back and enjoy this fine brew.

In my opinion this is the best marzen made. It has the nicest balance of malt and hops going. The beer is incredibly drinkable. The malt aroma is straight from the brew kettle. Caramel throughout. I think this is a classic and have found no American micro that can touch it, though several Germans come close.

A nice everyday drinking beer. Nothing fancy, just a tasty beer that goes GREAT together with steak. Will definitely get again.

The beer has a fresh aroma with caramel and a distinctive grain bin smell. Smells exactly like being in the brewery when an Oktoberfest is being brewed. Gold to copper color with a creamy head. Big grain taste with a non-hop bite at finish. Hearty and dense mouthfeel.

(bottle) Bottle opened with a delightful pop. Rich caramel and yeast aroma. Mid amber colour. Fine white head which laced the glass. Flavours of sweet toffee and almond. Hops are present but not overpowering. Finish is not heavy, despite the initial caramel hit. This is definitely in my top 3 Märzens. Prost!
