HonkeyBra (3906) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 2016
On draft at the Bavarian Lodge in Lisle, IL. Pours a deep amber orangish color with an off white head. Aroma of herbal hops and caramel malt notes. Flavor is bitter with herbal hop presence surrounded by sweet caramel and toffee malts. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel, lively mouthfeel with a caramel and bitter hop finish. Overall, nice.

Bottle. Slightly hazy amber colour with a medium white head, surprisingly hoppy aroma with spicy, floral, almost perfumed notes but also some hints of chocolate and toffee, taste is more malty and a bit roasty with a nice dry finish and also some booziness, creamy mouthfeel. Nice one!

Bill Becker (656) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - DEC 11, 2015
Pours a hazy ripened peach colour, good and long lasting head of foam. I get fruity and bready notes in the smell. Kinda sweet but kinda not. Bready in the taste but dominated over by some kind of stone pitted fruit. I can’t quite pull out what it is but it’s distracting. Great mouthfeel. Code on the label: 41517060. ? 41st day of 2015? Not worthy of a future visit.

Bottle. The best Oktoberfest beer I’ve ever had. Cloudy, amber in color with a nice fluffy head. Aroma was caramel and roasted grains. Taste was caramel, nutty roasted grains and malty goodness. Nice.

Saeglopur (1438) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - SEP 17, 2015
500 ml bottle from Bottle Shop, Salzburg.
Amber-orange, clear body, with a big, fluffy, moderately lacing, yellowish head.
Aroma of bread, caramel, sweet fruits, flowers, grass.
Tastes of caramel, bread, flowers, must, sweet fruits, grass, some fresh herbs.
Quite light, slick mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes moderately bitter, sweet, bready, floral, a bit grassy, slightly herbal.

Really nice. Pretty much how I like a Märzen, but rarely ever find, brewed in the traditional style and not as flat and characterless as many examples today. Full malt body, while easy drinkable. Not my very favourite Austrian style example (Augustiner in Salzburg is unbeatable), but among the best.

Pours amber with lacing. It has bread aromas. It has a toffee like sweet taste that is smooth on the palate.

Aggiebob (525) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - APR 29, 2015
Bottle: It poured a hazy amber orange with a very tall frothy off-white head. The aroma is stale roasted malt and caramel. The taste is bready with a herbal hop finish. It is medium body with a dry finish. Not as sweet as I expected with a typical Marzen/Oktoberfest.

Bottle. Dark orange, unfiltered, cloudy. Sweet spiced aroma. Light syrupy taste with herbal fruit notes and grains. Very thin feel with High carb. Pretty bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
