DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2004
On draft at North Wales. Copper colored with big, creamy white head. Aroma of malt, toffee, caramel. The taste and palate were very rich, firm, and complex, with hints of malt, toffee, caramel, nuts, and I swore I could taste a nutmeggy, pumpkin pie essence. I took a growler of this and a growler of the Harvest Ale to go. One of my top 20 marzens of all time.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - 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.
