Bottle. This is a pretty flimsy Marzen. Nothing super special here. Grab an Ayinger.

Ed5388 (3164) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a light amber color with a light tan head. Not much aroma. Some sweet malt and faint spices. Taste of bitter piney hops, caramel and slightly roasted malts, and spices.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2013
Appearance: I got lazy and enjoyed straight from the bottle, but I Googled me a pic ... doesn’t look much like an Octoberfest. A bit light. Nice lacing in the bottle. Smell: Well, it’s an amber. Not shy, and gets you with the malts. The hops are certainly in there, but you can get an idea of what kind of beer this is just from a quick whiff. Pretty good stuff. Taste/feel: As an Octoberfest, it’s average. As an amber, it’s average. To me, this tastes quite a bit like Boston Lager, but missing a certain "oomph" that Sam Adams puts in that beer. This is still a pretty nice beer, and I wouldn’t mind having myself another. A nice bit of malts, and a refreshing beer all the way. I dig it.

VoodooBear (49) - San Juan, PUERTO RICO - MAR 10, 2013
Presentation: 12 oz. brown bottle with no freshness date. Bottle cap reads: "Be True. Be You." Served in a steidel. Appearance: Very clear, dark amber color. Almost a finger of head, that quickly fizzles out into a thin ring. No lacing on the glass. Smell: Not aromatic at all. Slight hints of malt and hops, but that’s about it. Taste: Quite malty with a helping of hop bitterness. A bit of sweetness in there as well with an overall smoky taste. Mouthfeel: Not that much carbonation. It’s medium bodied and creamy. Overall: Not the best seasonal out there, but it’s not like Magic Hat was out to knock everyone out. It’s certainly one of the more interesting ones available. Definitely worth a try.

A little bit of smoke aroma in this brings it above the average for style, but still the taste overall comes off a bit weird. Pours clear copper. Average carbonation, sticky consistency. Aftertaste a little sweet and odd - seems slightly off just like their #9. Bottle from Smoke it Cigars in San Juan.

Bottle in NYC sept 2012. Clear amber beer with a small white head. Malty and dried dark fruits aroma. Hoppy and malty flavour.

VALIS (229) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 28, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2013 Deep gold to burnt orange color is one of the best things about this beer. Faint citrus aroma, but solid, slightly tart taste. A little too smooth and watery. Love the label. Packaging should be a rateable category!

Beautiful looking beer. Decent taste. I’ve certainly had better Octoberfest beers. Not terrible, but not a favorite.

Pours an orange amber color with very little head. Smell is sweet malt with some caramel. Taste is sweet upfront with some hops taste that ends a little astringent. Mouthfeel is medium weight . Not impossible to drunk but not overly enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
