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.

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.

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.

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 (85) - 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.

Bottle . Pours a light bronze watery color. Interesting having a non wheat fruit beer from this company but nothing great ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear orange color with a foamy head that sticks around for a few minutes and very mild carbonation and decent lacing. The aroma is light caramel, cooked corn, grain adjuncts and some mild grassiness and maltiness. The flavor is light caramel, rust (AKA munich malts), grassiness, and some corn. Body is light but the carbonation intensity is strong compared to what I saw in the glass. It smells like Budweiser but the taste says otherwise; There are better Oktoberfest beers out there.

5oz taster on tap during Cincinnati Beer Fest 2013. Clear orange color. Little white head. Maybe 2 dots of lace. Lighter to medium body. Lighter carbonation, more dry finish. A little sharp in the texture. Metallic aroma, some caramel malt. Light spiciness. Moderate bitter taste, no discernible sweetness. Way subpar for an oktoberfest.

Lucky me, this bottle will mark the 600th rating for this beer, marked DEC1613, screw cap. Nose crackery and spicy malt, not utterly spring-fresh but still inviting. Pours a beautiful amber with a sudsy beige head. Very crisp and carbonated medium body, light touches of citrus behind the fat Munich malt, has some cracker and pretzel, spicy and high quality noble hops. Like it, definitely do, but wouldn’t want to have more than one, just very filling in flavor and heavy in body.
