COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This robust, festive brew is inspired by the crisp autumn season and the great Oktoberfest tradition. An authentic German style Märzen, Uncle Otto’s delivers rich, malty flavor with complex overtones of a half-dozen select malts and Mt. Hood and Saaz Hops. True to the Bavarian original, Uncle Otto’s lagers slowly for two full months, making it exceptionally smooth drinking. Available August through October, Uncle Otto’s animated flavor makes the blustery fall days of leaf raking come alive.

A slightly cloudy brown with a small tan head. Sweet malty profile, with floral hops. Smells just wonderful! A tasty Marzen for sure. A sweet but nice example of this style that I grow to love with each new beer! A big thanks to my little sister Dawn for sending this from California to Japan for me!

Pours a redish amber with a decent head with some decent lace. Smells *really* sweet. As in, beyond the malt and there's sugar there. Some fruit esters are present. Tastes malty with some fruit. Not very complex. Mouthfeel is creamy and okay. Drinkability is average. I'm not impressed at all.

I'm glad I picked this one up. It was very tasty. I really enjoyed the great malt taste. Extremley good for an American Octoberfest. Blows Sam Adams version out of the water.

Deep ruby with an off-white head. Nice caramel aroma backed by fresh fruit. Sweet with a quick light bitter finish.

Reid (1949) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 15, 2003
Bought in the 12 oz brown bottle..with a rather cheery label. A very nice looking beer..nice darkish amber colour..with an absolutly gorgeous coffee and creme coloured head. A great fresh maltyaroma in this..sort of english toffee smell. Wow this is a malt lovers beer for sure, it dominates with its creamt goodness..its not too sweet though..slight chocolate tatse..with a hint of hops near the end. Exceptionally smooth and creamy on the palate. A very nice and extremely drinkable Marzen..recommended.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2003
Clear rufous. Dense, sticky white head. Soft gummy malt aroma surrounded by graham, mineral, and toast. Spicy hop, ester, and leathery hints. Tight, expansive carbonation. Medium-bodied. Malty sweetness up front, followed by a touch of juicy plums and rich, bready malts. Finishes powdery and dry with a touch of oxidation and acidity alongside a lengthy, slightly musty candied malt sweetness. Lovely balance between the strawish Pale malt and sweet, tangy Munich. It’s got a snazzy aroma packed with sweet, bready malts and spicy hops, a sturdy head, and a beautiful round body and soft esters from the careful lagering. Very solid version.

hopscotch (9559) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2003
Sparkling clear copper lager. The aroma is malty with notes of caramel. Nicely balanced flavor due to a nice spiciness. Very decently hopped. Another Oktoberfest beer... what can I say? Not my thing. Still, great for the style!

Amber color, caramel malt scent. Interesting, it has a sweet taste, but a lingering hop aftertaste. Neat. Not a great beer, but perfectly accecptable.

Draft. Amber color with a good head. The malts are a bit too string and could be a bit more mellow.
