COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Released in celebration of autumn’s arrival, Oktoberfest is a medium-bodied bier crafted in the Leavenworth tradition. This richly amber seasonal owes its smooth, malty flavor to a large percentage of Munich malt. In the classic German tradition, we add both noble Tettnanger and imported Tradition hops for an authentic Oktoberfest hop aroma.

Another beer by Fish Brewing that is being sold @ Total Wine in Delaware. Crimson colored medium bodied O-fest that is lightly hopped and caramel malt flavor. Enjoyed a bomber by the fire pit listening to the World Series on a crisp Fall evening.

fiulijn (14533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2014
Draught at Collective on Tap, Woodinville, WA
Dark amber to brown color, hazy, with compact head. The aroma is light, the flavor more pronounced; it has some caramel with a cereally character, and lowish bitterness.
Simple.

JDBaker11058 (1269) - Maryland, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Appearance: medium amber orange with one finger of near-white head, minimal lacing. Aroma: bready caramel malts, some nuts, brown sugar, earthy hops. Taste: as the aroma indicates, with a bit of floral hops. Finish: slightly sweet, toasty malts linger a bit, but overall a decently clean finish. Notes: A decent enough okto brew. First beer from this brewery, would try another.

AKORN (140) - Virginia, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Malt, strong dough and yeast aromas. Golden copper in color with a good head. Mild bitters, doughy and fruity esters. Nice lite beer, but an Oktoberfest should be a lager in my opinion.

chinchill (1867) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 20, 2014
22 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Poured lightly hazy, brown-amber in color, with a small, off-white head that had OK retention and left just a spotty lacing. A sweet malty aroma witha nice breadiness. Flavor: sweet malts in generous portions mix with balancing noble hops that add only a slight bit of spicy hop character, but nicely counter the malts’ sweetness. Simple and mild but pleasant and refreshing. Feel: Medium body and lively, near medium carbonation. O: Worth trying, but style is more American Amber than marzen.

RobertDale (3455) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JAN 13, 2014
22 ounce bottle. Pours a light amber with a decent beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and floral. Taste is malt, grain, fruit, caramel, and floral. Decent.

bhensonb (11060) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bomber from the North Coast Co-Op in Eureka, CA. Pours clear bright copper with a slight yellowish head. Aroma is soft sweet malt with very mild floral/spice. Maybe a little grass. Med body. Flavor is spicy sweet malt with some earth and grass. After the malt melts away there is distinct bitter, but the malt never quite entirely leaves. Guess it’s balanced. One of the more nicely hopped of the marzens I can recall.

Dapierce17 (93) - Pasco, Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Pours a copper red color with a tan lingering head. Slight hop aroma with mostly caramel malt tones. Malt heavy with roasted nutty flavors with caramel notes. A pretty flavorful Octoberfest beer. Nothing spectacular but good nonetheless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kramer (4942) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Tap. Pours a clear orangish amber body with a one finger frothy off-white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is sweet and malty with some Vienna and caramel malt. Not much to speak of as far as hops go. The flavor is a little husky with toasty and caramel malt sweetness. I could do with a bit more in the hops department to balance things out a bit and add some crispness on the finish. Medium bodied, clingy on the finish, fine fizzy carbonation. Not the best example for the style, but it’s not the worst either.

When Total Wine & More dropped the price of this to $1.99 a bottle (for a bomber), I grabbed one. It has been sitting in my fridge for weeks, and last night I finally drank it. It didn’t get better in time, that’s for sure. It was just OK, lots of malt forward, and a boring finish. I actually poured half the bottle down the drain. Maybe I will try it again next year, but this beer is easy to forget.

Drake (8539) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Bomber from Total Wine Virginia Beach. Pours a slightly hazy auburn color with a large foamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of floral hops and caramel malts. The taste is nutty, grainy caramel malts, stone fruits and a mildy bitter hop finish. Medium bodied. Fairly generic.
