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.

nice, dark golden color, very little head. very malty. not a great representation of an oktoberfest beer.

Pours a medium clean copper and has a small quickly fading head. Aroma is sourish malts, grains, mild hops. Flavor is a little bigger on the malt. Also hints of tartness. Overall not too bad.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - SEP 25, 2007
Pours a clear amber-orange with a loose, frothy, beige head that diminishes to a fizzy cap of bubbles. The aroma is fruity and lightly bready with a slightly "off" adjunct note. Light-bodied and grainy with an astringent and faintly metallic finish. The flavor is toasted, bready malt with a very dry finish. Not bad, but not one I’ll drink again.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 25, 2007
Poured a clear amber with a scant, barely off-white head. The aroma was thin, but what came through was malt, yeast, and a sweetness that had some borderline corn notes to it. The flavor continued where the simplistic aroma left off. Sweetness (is that malt or is it corn?) followed by paper thin hoppiness. Easy going down if a bit unexciting.

I’m really going against the grain on this one, but this was one tasty beer that was hitting on a lot of cylinders. Pour was beautiful. Dark brown with a whopping two finger head. Aroma was very fresh-smelled like it was just poured by a big busted blond German girl with an oompah band playing in the background. Sweet malt and caramel are heavy on the aroma aw well as the taste. Taste was a little weaker than the aroma but it would be hard to match it.All in all a great O/M.

light amber color with small white head. a weak aroma primarily of malts. easily drinkable and better than many of the american fest beers i’ve had. i.e. summit

Good beer. Better than Sam Adams Oktoberfest. Has more flavor than most beers.

Promising yeasty, grainy bread aroma. Flavor brighter than expected, slightly acid. Not a textbook oktoberfest. Experience is smooth, with plenty of enjoyment to offer for a budget brew.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2011 Bready yeasty arome, very little same old beer smells. has a tinge of alky on the olfactory. Slightly darker than the ubiquitous pale yellow Americana lager. Thick off white creamy head. Has a nice rolling carbonation that appears visually appealing. Good creamy carbonation on the palate. Decent slight octoberfest feel. Good manners, odd processed grassy flavors. Very little bitterness. Typical easy to drink lager impressions. One of the better less offensive fests I’ve had. Finish is well behaved but there is a tad of industrial manufactured palate that hangs for a while.

Clear honey colored brew with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is somewhat slight with notes of caramel and malt. The sweetness is there in the beginning as you drink, then it tapers off to a slight tart fruit. Finishes clean. A decent Octoberfest.
