COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional Marzen brewed with 2-Row Pale, Caramel, and Munich malts. The malts give it a hearty character and deep amber color. Tettnanger and Perle hops provide a well-balanced, drinkable finish prefect for Fall celebrations.

Not pleased. Looks fine enough. Ends there. Aroma is weak and can only be described as slightly sweet. Taste wise its again weak. The traditional flavours are there but just so held back.

Carmel and malt aroma, a mild taste with not much to it... not my favorite style and not a great beer.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear orangish copper body with a small fizzy off-white head. The nose is sweet caramel malt with a bit of a light soapy note, some minimal hops. The flavor is rather thin and watery with a weak sweet caramel malt base. Rather grainy and a bit husky with very little bitterness. Light bodied and watery in texture with soft fizzy carbonation. Overall, just a bit too thin and sweet. Tastes like a ’cheap’ beer, bump up the malt on this one.

Ok flavor. Pour is a light amber with a thin white head that disappears quickly.

jhp40219 (301) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 5, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2013 Pours a clear dark copper/amber color with a nice head initially that disappears quickly into a small ring of bubbles with spotty lacing that immediately slides down into the beer. Malty aroma of caramel, wheat, and biscuits. Taste is pretty the same as aroma but watered down. Good finish of hop bitterness and caramel malts that linger. Light bodied, watery thin texture, slightly higher than average carbonation. If they could boost the body and texture even slightly, it would be a world of improvement for this beer. One should never expect much from a Leinenekugel’s, Oktoberfest is certainly no exception. Drinkable, but nothing memorable.

Tap. I’m torn on how to rate this. As a beer it wasn’t bad. As an example of an Oktoberfest style it seemed way off the mark. It had a lager like flavor and consistency. Light and crisp with almost a rice malt taste.

jsquire (3395) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2013
Clear amber color out of the tap with a thin off white head. Thin sweet malt nose. Thin malt sweetness with some white sugar and burnt toast. Thin Ocktoberfest.

DCLawyer (1363) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Draft->shaker. Copper, foamy medium white head. Caramel malt, grains, burnt toast. Not a good example of the style.

12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount Liquors. Copper and clear with a small white head. Aroma and flavor of caramel malts, toast, mild bitterness, and earthy hops. Light to medium body with a lightly sweet finish. Easy to drink.

Mastelefish (80) - North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2013
From the bottle, it pours an amber-orange. Fairly carbonated with a foamy white head. Light aroma and body with a simple taste consisting mostly of sweeter caramel malts. Definitely drinkable, but not my go to Octoberfest beer.
