A lightly hazed golden Marzen with a thin creamy white head. In aroma, a light caramel malt with light butterscotch, and herbal hops. In mouth, a smooth crisp biscuitty malt with herbal German hops, with light metallic notes, smooth and pleasant. On tap at brewpub, Oct. 14 2011.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2007 2007 version: An all-Saaz version. A wonderfully balanced polotmavé (so not your usual oktoberfest lager) with a cushiony body, beautiful Saaz presence from aroma to bitterness, bready malts and soft carbonation. An exceptional session beer! 3.7/5

2004 version: An earthy yeast spray tastefully lathers the classy hay and floral bitterness...Perfect balance of soothing malt biscuits and orangey and herbal hops...Traditional values which are still interestingly contemporary...3.5/5

Rastacouere (6129) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2004
Orange/Sand hue, hazy, sticky 1cm white head. Light aroma, smells heavily carbonated up front. Creamy, herbal.. Big flavor of butter cookies, ginger, gentle floral hops. Slightly astringent finish. Mild, but efficient. Well developped graham cookies maltiness. Expressive dry almost smoky caramel pudding finish. Mild bitterness. Very crisp light-medium body with usual powdery Cheval Blanc mouthfeel. Crisp carbonation. Straightforwardly good.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2007
The look: Cloudy amber body with a medium off-white head.
The style: Oktoberfest
The stuff: Aroma of a peppery/spicy barley cookie if such a thing exists. Taste is what I expect from this (I must admit unexciting style). Malt profile is biscuit and doughy. True german larger yeast feel. Nose spices only have a subtle presence in the taste. Very doughy and round with a nice fluffy body. Generously amount of grassy hops. Ah, the Oktoberfest, one of my favourite yearly tradition next to wrestling albinos midgets in rice pudding.
The how: Tap at brewpub
The conclusion: True to the style. Slightly above average for the style.

TaktikMTL (5753) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2006
Verre de 12 oz à la brasserie. Arôme: Odeur de caramel et d’épices. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût d’épices et de caramel. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen. Faible effervescence en bouche. Présence d’amertume légèrement épicée en arrière goût. (Rating #719)

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2004
Nice balance of thick, chewey malts and light, herbal hops in the nose. Hazy, light copper-golden with small white head that recedes to lasting cover with some nice lacing. Big malty caramel and toffee flavour, with herbal/floral hops towards the end and mild bitterness to take the edge off. Lastingly sweet caramel in the finish. Medium body with good carbonation on the tongue and very nice mouthfeel. So good, I had to have a second glass. On tap at the brewpub.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Sampled at the brewpub with tiggmt. Very light, clear gold, little head. Light caramel-sweet nose, hints of honey...flavor a bit rougher and woody, lightly smoky late, medium bodied.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2005
Pours a nice, clear dark gold color with a medium, creamy white head. Interesting aroma of biscuity malt and bread. Good flavor of strong, thick biscuity malt with bread and a solid hops bitterness. The body has a light to medium thickness with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. This beer is well made and enjoyable.
