12 oz. bottle. It pours a nice clear orange color with an off white head. The aroma is super malty, grainy sweet with a bit of caramel. Light noble hops. The flavor is toasty and sweet with more caramel and lightly fruity malts. Somewhat toasty dry finish, with some noble hop bitterness. Pretty enjoyable brew if you don’t think about it too much. Nice one to finish off an evening.

DYCSoccer17 (3305) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 21, 2013
12 ounce bottle from a mixed 12 pack purchased at Trader Joe’s in Davis. The aroma is very sweet and full of buttery diacetyl. Almost smells like some sort of pumpkin beer. Light underlying metallic lager hints. Transparent copper body with a small, fairly strong off-yellow head present. Starts with some caramel sweetness, before this becomes a bit nutty in the middle. Finishes with some carbonation and more buttery diacetyl. Scant bitterness late.

ScipioA (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Light orange/yellow with a giant durable head on top and lots of rising bubbles. Not much of an aroma at all, maybe of bit of dank hops but more or less just a general ’beer’ smell. The flavor disappoints. Some sweetness that doesn’t mesh well with the hops. Little bit of skunkiness as well. Some lingering bitterness. Decent mouthfeel, but leaves a chalkiness that is unpleasant in an oktoberfest presumably meant to be quaffed in volume.

Pours autumnal orange-red into a shaker. Off-white head with little retention recedes to skim surface. Candy corn aromas. Nasty cooked vegetables and sour earth front to back and through the bitter finish. Are you kidding me? Drain pour.

DrSilverworm (6278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2013
12oz bottle, from my local Trader Joe’s. Best by: 1/21/14. Clear orange color. Thin khaki head. Caramel, bigger toasty malt aroma. Some spicy hop, hint of orange citrus. Leaves pretty decent ropes of lace. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Medium body. Soft, moderate strength carbonation. Sort of dry finish. Solid oktoberfest. Satisfying amount of hop character, reasonably complex flavor profile. Good to enjoy with my sandwich.

Nasty stuff, stale german lager mixed with licking a battery and a touch of butthole.

Syzzer (590) - Oregon, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Poured from 12 oz bottle. Clear light orange color. Slight Soury bitter. Decent white foamy head that reduces to a ring. Mostly grain-wheat flavor.

sawbuck (314) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Mild aroma of caramel and malt. Pale amber color with quickly fading head. First taste is sweet malt, with a flat/stale characteristic. Notes of caramel, and sweet malt, finishes nicely with a quick bitterness burst. Lacks the freshness, and boldness of other examples but o.k. for the price.

Copper Color, Long Lasting Huge Foamy Head, Leaves Lots of Lacing. Faint Grainy Aroma. Malt, Nice long lasting bitter Finish. Hardly a Marzen, More like a Lager, just like the label says. Drinkable, Decent. Even if you pass it, you not missing much...
