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.

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.

BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2007
12 ounce bottle. Shaker glass. Dark golden thin head. Not sure on the aroma. Mainly just a bit of caramel and malt. Not much else. Not very good for this style.

Thure (152) - DENMARK - SEP 12, 2007
The colour is amber with a white head. The aroma is of sweet malt and grain. The flavor is fruity hops with a bit of grain and some maltyness to it.

Yellow orange color with creamy white head. Grainy nose. Lightly roasted malt body with a clean finish.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 10, 2007
Pours dark orangish with a mostly receding light tan head. Aroma of sweet grainy malt, toffee, and bready lager yeast. Taste is slightly metallic, sweet, and sticky caramel. Mouthfeel is full bodied, slightly sticky with lush, slight overcarbonation. Didn’t care for this one. A bit too sticky and artificial tasting.

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.

hellomynameis (876) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - SEP 7, 2007
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.
