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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. 04/15. Pours a bright, golden amber colour with a frothy, off white head which reduced to a collar and left a trace of lacing. Pleasantly malty aroma with a hint of grassy hops. Mildly sweet with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Smooth, medium bodied and quite easy to drink. Decent enough but didn’t leave me craving more.

didn’t like this as much as some other oktoberfests; malty nose typical but the hops didn’t really match what I was hoping for

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber with a beige head cover, sreaks of lace. Taste is caramel malt that adds a carbonation edge on the swallow, moving smoothly through the finish with minimal hops. A decent Marzen, good example of the style.
