Bottle from Rays in Tosa. Pours a reddish orange with a tan head leaving spots of lace. Aroma has sweet fruits and nuts, pale malts and honey. Taste is of sweet caramel, dark fruits with oranges, some earthy rye, and nuts plus hints of spicy black pepper. Medium to full bodied. A lot going on. Not very "marzen"y. Finishes sweetly fruity with nuts and alcohol. More an American Strong ale, IMO, than a marzen. Not a negative in my book. Interesting, a bit sweet, fairly tasty.

Solid but unremarkable. This draft came off a little flat and it threw me off from the get go. Standard octoberfest malts, maybe kicked up a bit being that its marketed as "imperial" but I couldn’t tell.

Chudwick (2438) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - OCT 27, 2013
12oz bottle - pours clear redding amber with tan head. Nose is rye (?), caramel, toast and hay. Sip adds pumpkin and booze. Malty with a grapefruit finish. After a while this tastes like brown sugar with a blast of grapefruit.

Leinenkugel’s Big Eddy Über-Oktoberfest has a thin, off-white head, a clear, bubbly, brilliant orange-copper appearance, and a little bit of thin lacing left behind. The aroma is rather bold- rich, bready malt, brown bread crust, a bit of orange, some sweetness, and a pungent note. Taste is of rich, sweet, bready, barley malt, sweetness, mandarin orange pulp, brown bread crust, slight nut, and a fairly pronounced straight-forward hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to thick, with some carbonation prickle, and Leinenkugel’s Big Eddy Über-Oktoberfest finishes decently crisp, easy-drinking, and remarkably smooth. Overall, this is delicious, and I strongly advise trying it. RJT

Bottle. Copper, color. Light tan, small head. A lot of lace. Hoppy, grain aroma. Taste is hoppy and sweet. One of the best Oktoberfest beers out their. Really good.

rumproasts (4132) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 24, 2013
bottle. deep amber with small head. big caramel malt, a bit sweet. fairly mild hops. just seems overdone, which is probably the point, but the end result just doesn’t strike me as a very good beer.

Pours a deep, clear caramel amber. Small off-white head, partially lasting. Big. Very malty, caramel, spice, rye, citrus, fruity hops, alcohol. Medium body. A bit barley wine-ish. ’Oktoberfest’ in name, but thats all.

not a very good Oktoberfest. Very sweet, boozy, syrupy. Has a nice caramel taste.
