Too much alcohol (gasp!) It’s 7.7% in Phoenixville. The alchohol overpowers and it’s very sweet, too sweet for an Oktoberfest in my book. Nice aroma, spicy, a little yeasty - first sip takes you by surprise.

Golden color with a moderate head. Sweet, cereal, malty-aroma with some light hops. Flavor is malty with some light sugar, cereal, and spice. Solid fest-brew.

egajdzis (5695) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2008
[Phoenixville, PA] Poured a copper color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of nuts, caramel, toast, toffee, and a bit of citrus. Taste of nuts, toasted dough, caramel, and a rather bitter, dry finish.

Goodgrief (1907) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - SEP 24, 2008
On tap at Wilmington location: Dark copper head, smallish head and lacing. Caramal malty base with pretty large floral hop base. More hoppy than your typical oktoberfest. Crisp and refreshing with a firm kick. Mild to high carbonation. I liked it.

Swolf3 (262) - Elkton, Maryland, USA - SEP 24, 2008
On tap at Iron Hill Newark. Poured a nice clear copper color with nice tan foamy head. Aroma was not very strong, mild spice, nuts and malts. Flavor was also mild with hints of bread, spice, and floral taste. Finished crisp and clean with no traces of alcohol, a decent oktoberfest by Iron Hill.

adrian910ss (2445) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2008
On draft at the North Wales location. Pours a clear coppery amber with a medium sized beige head. Aroma of nuts, light fruit and hops. Taste is hoppy with hints of nuts and light grains. Hoppier than most Octoberfests.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2007
KSBF 07 (this was brewed at the Newark location) I think Justin is thier brewer there, and judging by this beer, he rocks. This is the best Oktoberfest I have had this year, and maybe even better than Ramsteins. Pours a nice clear orangy amber with nice subtle carbonation and a large frothy long lasting off white head- good lace. Aroma is fresh baked bread, toasted malts, tons of light munich and vienna with light nuts and a subtle fresh floral hop touch. Awesome full malty flavor with tons of toasted malts, light caramel flavor, but all munich and vienna- no sharp crystal malts used. Good clean crisp finish with just a touch of hops in the end. Smooth as hell. One of the best beers at the fest by far.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2006
North Wales. Ultra-bright, deep golden body with a sudsy white head. Nutty, sweet malt aroma with mild toast and soft, fruity esters. Rich Vienna malt flavor with some good nutty and fruity depth. Woody/earthy hops in the finish with moderate bitterness. Moderately sweet, but not cloying. Very sessionable. One of the better Oktoberfests. Not dull and trite like some.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2006
Draft On tap at North Wales. Pours a nice copper with a decent creamy white head. Has a malty aroma with hints of citrus hops. Had a good flavor with touches of bread. A light duration and a smooth aftertaste. A very tasty beer. Had a good palate and was a nice mix.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - SEP 30, 2006
On tap at the Phoenixville location. Pours a translucent deep copper with an average creamy off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of a grainy maltiness, toffee, caramel and a hint of citrus. Flavor was also very grainy, cereal, nuts, caramel and some hints of hops to keep things interesting. Nicely done Marzen.
