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.

Copper bronze color, pellucid, sticky head, some lacing. The aroma has some dusty malts, not well defined, chaotic. The flavor is moderately sweet with some good malts. Very 1-dimensionaly though to me. Just some caramel malt sweetness is all I get. Finishes sweet, some malt. eh. Thanks Falconseye!

Interesting color, brownish-orange. Lots of malt flavor and some bitterness. I would drink this again.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2013 Not a very good Oktoberfest, I am extremely dissapointed with this one, but what else should I expect from a beer with a twist off cap? Has absolutely no flavor compared to other better oktoberfests. Pale ochre color doesn’t inspire greatness either. Re-rate, 2013: even worse than I remember. Even more so that I am now on the east coast, and a six pack costs $10. Oh, the days in the midwest when it was less than $1 per bottle.

light orange coor with a quickly dissipating white head. sweet malty aroma and carmel. taste is a bit of a let down after a decent aroma...malty flavor but not very complex, ok hoppiness at the end...drinkable but nothing that stands out.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 10, 2004
lighter in colour that I expected, no head with no lacing on the glass. Malts and some hops in the nose, the taste in dominated by malts. Fairly one directional and unimpressive.

Standard lager aroma. Light orange and clear. Small, thin head. Medium bodied lager flavor with some bread and bitter hops in the finish.

Not great, but not too bad. Slightly on the light side, as is most of Leinenkugels brews; but drinkable. Slight maltiness but no real detectable hops presence. I'll try other Octoberfest brews before I decide if I like them all that much. This isn't bad, but I won't go out of my way to get any either.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 24, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2003 Very watery malt, hardly any hop character. What malt was there had a simple sugary taste. Not recommended.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - OCT 19, 2003
Light amber color,small head that faded fast.Malty sweet aroma with a hint of corn,with a hint of caramel or toffee.The taste is sweet and malty,maybe a slight hint of caramel and faint hops little else.The after taste is sweet and malty with an even fainter hint of hops.This is a watery thin brew that is easy to drink but offers little in the area of flavor.Worth trying but little else beyond that.

clear, light amber color, nice head with some lacing...aroma is yeasty and smells like the solution that goes on hair when someone is getting a permanent with just a hint of roastiness. flavor is bready, thin, with a little roastiness.
