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.

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.

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.

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.

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2004
Poured a light amber or orange color with barely any head. It has a really sweet aroma, and indeed the flavor is sweet and grassy, no caramel that I’d expect for the name ... disappointing.

Bottle. Bright amber color with a small, nearly vanishing white head. Not much aroma at all, just a slightly sulphury light lager smell. Thin body with plenty of carbonation. Maybe things have changed this year, because I’m not picking up on the sweetness vibe . Actually, kind of of puckering astringency with a dry, almost metallic finish. Kind of reminds me of their Amber Light, which isn’t a bad beer, but not exactly what I was looking for here. Almost think this is misbottled. As a beer, easy drinkin’ refreshment. As an Oktoberfest, a big miss.
