Magic Hat claims this beer is a combination of the altbier and marzen styles.Pours a clear, dark gold color, with a three finger head. Strong malt and roasted notes in the aroma. I don’t get hops in the aroma but they are definitely there in the taste, the bitterness standing up to the malt. I don’t get caramel in the palate, probably because of the hop bitterness. This beer most resembles the Blue Point Oktoberfest I reviewed previously. I bit of a thicker mouthfeel however.

On tap at Flying Saucer- Cordova. Orange-amber pour. The nose, flavor, and palate are deeper in fruit than most Märzens. Enjoyable in session with other Oktoberfests, though not at the front of the pack.

Fairly unremarkable. Bitter, dry, floral hoppy aroma. Golden amber color with a tinge of red and a little haze to it. A floral bitterness in the middle with a lavender taste that lingers. Full bodied, but a little sticky. Bitter finish with a short drop off. Tough competition, considering the strength of Octoberfests and autumn seasonals, leading to high expectations, but it just doesn’t stack up.

Nice golden amber color. Peppery taste slightly bitter. It is drinkable, but is an unremarkable beer.

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.

Ok beer. Pours a nice amber color. Very little aroma. Some toffee. Caramel and toffee taste. A little on the sweet side overall. Very little carbonation.

traditionally not an oktoberfest brew fan, but I’d say this beer was worth a whirl.

Hcgiii (30) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Soft initial taste that does not get much stronger as an octoberfest-style beer. Has a bit of a watery back-end taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, pours a pretty amber resin color. Healthy looking white head dissipates quickly, letting out aromas of caramel malts, floral and slightly fruity notes. Malty, bready, a little alcohol towards the end. All in all a pretty drinkable spin on an Oktoberfest.

teckdeck2008 (25) - Bryan, Texas, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Color: Dark Amber Nose: very yeasty dark bread with a hint of very ripe pumpkin Taste: sweet and sour yeast on the front palate, dark bread and pumpkin with a touch of moldiness on the mid palate, dark pumpkin bread type flavor on the finish Mouthfeel: Not the quite velvetty, but considering the flavor and hops involved very smooth for the style Comments: While not the best, very good octoberfest style seasonal beer; I can tell they tried to do something different and a bit more challenging in regards to flavor and I appreciate that; definitely worth trying at least once
