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.

The coloring is a nice reddish gold wth a medium sized white head. Caramel and some sweet grassy aroma. The taste is earthy with caramel and some butterscotch. A nice dry hay like finish. A decent O’fest, but not great.

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - OCT 8, 2004
Dark gold with no head. Lightnose with some malt and yeast. Light mouthfeel with dry finish. Flavors of carmel, light roasted malt, and faint hops. Not bad though I’ll pass.

Crystal clear amber color with a thin white head, with some lacing. Nice malt and yeast balancing in the nose, toasted bread malt aroma, and the yeast smells somewhat spicey. Clean flavor dominated by malt, finishs dry with a little grainy astringency. Overall a very good Oktoberfest style.

I love the fall, the weather, the football and Oktoberfest beer. This offering is nothing special, pours amber, head disappers quickly. There is a hint of caramel and kind of sweet with a slight hop finish. Could have been better, but not offensive.

Silphium (3161) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 26, 2004
Clear amber body, persistent pillowy light cream head. Earthy, biscuity, toasted grain aroma. The body is watered-down but maintains traditional Oktoberfest flavors of grain, biscuit, toast, and a touch of caramel. No off-flavors. Light bitterness. The thin body keeps this from being offensive as many beers of this style border on.

Sweet soap taste. Not much aroma. Nothing much Marzen-like about this. A poor imitation of the style.

Didn’t tast much like a traditional Marzen-style Oktoberfest at all. Disappointing as an Oktoberfest and mediocre as a beer in general.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Amber with an off-white head. Very weak on the aroma and the flavor. Some notes of caramel malt and some touches of hops but so watered down as to be almost nondescript.

Draft. A good try at a Wisconsin Okto that is hamstring by megabrew constraints. Decently golden brown color and foamy head. A nice amber malt character, but nothing that says it’s anything but a lager with a few darker grains thrown in. No real faults as a beer, but Oktos are too easy a style to go bland in.
