KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 12, 2011
Bottle. The pour was a sparkling clear reddish brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) off white fizzy head that was mostly diminishing and had fair lacing which somewhat stuck to the glass. The aroma was of a toasted bread malt, a mild grassy hop and a earthy yeast with a hint of caramel. The taste was moderately sweet with a light hint of caramel in the beginning and finished with a nice malty sweet flavor that had a mild hoppiness to it at the end. The flavor stayed with you for a decent amount of time allowing for the taste buds to fully enjoy all this brew has to offer. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and dry yet just a little oily in texture with a nice soft carbonation. Overall the maltiness and mild sweetness of this brew works so wonderfully together. No wonder they call it the original. This just so happens to be the first Oktoberfest I ever tasted many years ago and in my opinion still is one of the best.

LazyPyro (593) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2016
0.5L bottle. Pours a clear amber colour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma: malty, caramel, subtle dark fruit. Taste: malt, caramel, grains, light sweetness, subtle dark fruits and hops note. Moderate carbonation, light-medium body, light sweet and low bitterness. After four lacklustre Oktoberfest/Marzen in a row this is by far one of the better ones I’ve tried so far, a very drinkable beer.

hman43 (1197) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - OCT 1, 2016
It pours clear with a cooper color and an off white moderate head. It has caramel aromas with low fruit and some sweetness to it. There are sweet flavors, but not overly. There is a slight plum-like flavoring to it with the caramel and a hint of cherry. It has a moderate body with low bitterness and a clean finish. Overall, this is one of the better Marzen’s that I have had with a clear flavor with a malt forward flavor and well done hop compliments.
