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.

Amber bodied, frothy white headed, flavorful malts with a nice finish. Good for an American macrobrew...more hops than the "normal commercial" beers, I’d put it beside some Samuel Adams brews because of that. Bottle says "brewed in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin by 73 people who care." Well thanks, guys.

Red with no head by the the it got back to my table. Wet aroma with some amberish malts. The palate starts thin and gets a bit thicker but ends watery again. The flavor is typical ameri an octoberfest but has some strange hop bitternes at the end. Maybe a little nut n there.

I give this beer props for being more flavorful than beers produced by most large American breweries. I drank this side-by-side with a Beck’s Octoberfest. I wouldn’t put it on the same level as German Oktoberfests, but would be hard pressed to find a better, more flavorful beer for around $6.00 a six-pack.

I tried this beer in a bar last year and thought it was pretty good. I purchased a 6 pac and had a bottle. I was not impressed, very little flavor and tasted watered down.

(on tap) Pours amber with a white head. Aroma only contained what smelled like a cheap apple cider. Taste was just a little malty sweet, with a wheaty finish.

[On tap] Pours amber with a small white head. Aroma was very weakly of apple cider. Taste was malty, a little apple, some faint chemical bitterness towards the end. Medium body. Short finish. Average.

Very suprised this isn’t rated higher. I love the Oktoberfest beers and I’ve had many in my day and this one is still my favorite. One of the few beers my father and I agree on being top of the line!

This is a middling "light" version of a Marzen. It’s nowhere near strong enough in aroma or flavor to truly be an Oktoberfest, but it’s pretty decent when September rolls around and there aren’t other Marzen options available.
