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.

Beautiful deep pumpkin color, light body, initial sweet aroma and malty taste that quickly dissipates to a slight chemical bitterness. We Midwesterners love our Leinies, and for an affordable quaffer in October, this isn’t half bad.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - OCT 16, 2005
Clear golden amber. Nose some biscuit, bit sweet. Flavor sweet malts, toasted biscuits, and something akin to dish soap. Like pretty much anything Leinenkugel’s, it’s decent, but not exceptional in any way.

muzzlehatch (4463) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 16, 2005
12 oz bottle from Woodmans on Gammon Road in Madison, WI. Lovely, lovely scintillating golden body, fairly dense whitish head that lasts...sweet malty-molasses/maple nose with a hint of woodsmoke...sweet, sugary, simple flavor profile, quite light with some dry herbs hinted at late...somewhat fluffy mouthfeel. Not bad, certainly one of Leinies’ best these days.

Almost spilled some when the carbonation caught up with my pouring -- luckily no drop wasted. Had a nice slightly yellowish head. Smelled like herbed hops and sweet malts, tasted more like the malts rounded out with honey and caramel. Decent stuff.

Ok, so this isn’t the end-all, be-all of Oktoberfest beers, but it is tasty amd a nice sipping beer. Good flavor and price means I have a new beer to stock my fridge with during the fall.

light golden color. aroma is of orange and citrus flavors. not an exiting beer at all. Its better than say a miller lite but thats not saying much

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - SEP 17, 2005
Light dusty malt aroma. Clear orange with off-white head. Nasty plant malt, without much of anything. Extremely bland finish. This is worthless.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 4, 2005
Appearance: clear, and not-quite coppery in color, a deeper shade of orange maybe, with no head to speak of. Aroma: off. slightly herbal,... empty, and vacuous, with a "skunky lager" thing going on that dominates. Not good. Taste: do i have to? Away we go...slides easily into the mouth, then lays there, limp and listless. Minimal malt in the flavor, what there is of it...there’s just no character here. Brings me no pleasure in the imbibing, merely exists to have something wet in the mouth. A lightweight entry in the field. Best to avoid.

Red-amber color with a malty cola aroma. Good carbonation. Flavor is extremely malty with an acrid bitter malt finish. Not enough texture or hops. Not a great beer, but one of the best that strive to be a "great Budweiser".

Allright this beer isnt really too bad. Is it a complex, malty example of a great Oktoberfest beer? No. I dont think that is what it is trying to achieve, though. It is a beer with the slightest hint of hops and a sweet caramel malt background. On the palate it is somewhat watery, but it goes down pretty easily. The average Leinies drinker isnt looking for a full flavor complex beer, so this fits the profile. Come on, people from Wisconsin think that ketcup is spicy. For what it is, this beer is okay and that is why I rated it accordingly. If you are looking for a great Oktoberfest, look elsewhere. If you are looking for an easy drinking beer, this is it.
