COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is available each autumn in celebration of the great Bavarian festival season. Brewed in late spring and cellared throughout the summer, our Oktoberfest is produced through traditional methods as it has been for centuries in Germany, This copper-hued lager owes its rich malt flavor to a generous combination of select Vienna and Munich malts. Cool, open-fermentation develops a subtle elegance and drinkability suited to any festive occasion.

12oz bottle into tulip glass. Minneapolis. Appearance: Copper in color. Transparent. Small white head quickly reduces to nothing. Aroma: sweet malts Taste: Mild sweetness turns into mild bitterness. Not overwhelmingly strong in any attribute. Palate: Light body with a thin texture. flat carbonation. Short finish. Overall: An average marzen. Not very memorable. Not exceptional in any category. Fairly weak flavor, even for the style. Still, very drinkable.

Single bottle, Total Wine. Pours a coppery orange with a fairly large white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, a little fruit. Taste has the same characteristics - pretty mild. Bitter ending. Pretty average for the style.

Pours a copper color, aroma malty sweetness and biscuity scent, finishing refreshingly true-to-style for a Marzen.

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Ar: Hint of toasted malt, very clean. Ap: Crystal-clear amber - small light-tan head with decent retention and a sudsy cap of foam. T: Sweet caramel and some toasted malt - medium sweet, some grassy pils - low bitterness, finish is slightly earthy hops and slick caramel - astringency, too. P: Medium body with medium carbonation - finish is dry. O: Decent o-fest, but the caramel flavor is just too prominent, and the astringency is less-than-welcome.

TomTron (427) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Pours a nice copper color with a thin white head. Aromas of malts and more malts. Flavor is basically the same but the carbonation is a lot more soft than I was expecting. No detectable hop presence but for this style, that’s expected. Leaves an oily mouthfeel and has a bit of a watery finish but it’s not a bad offering at all.

A nice example of an Oktoberfest beer. Nice mouthfeel, good malty flavor, good after taste.

Ataraxia (416) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Burnt amber in color. Sweet aroma of apples, pears, oranges, and honey with floral notes. Also, caramel and bread malts. Tastes less sweet than it smells. A bit bitter in the aftertaste. Pretty good for a lager.

weitz15 (406) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 16, 2010
Light amber pour with an off whit head. Aroma of citrus and light hops. Medium light body, accompanied by a brisk, crisp palate. Flavor is lacking, however.

Goblincat (394) - Petersburg, Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Sugary rock candy aroma, maybe some hops or caramel in there. The taste is similar. It’s decent for what it is.

Draught at Cap Ale House. Nice looking reddish orange amber color. Off white head. Aroma is malty, grainy. Caramel and toastd malt flavor with light spice character. Standard malty marzen with a slight grainy taste.
