COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep golden amber in color, our Oktoberfest is brewed with generous blends of imported malt and hops. This Limited Edition Lager is delightfully balanced and very smooth. A perfect complement to autumn!

JK (4615) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Mid range quality on this beer. Orange color. Malt in the flavor and aroma. Some caramel, and just a little sweet with some dryness in the finish.

badgerben (4502) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 1, 2007
Another one from JK. Copper color with no head. Floral hop aroma. Fairly sweet malt taste that has a bit of Noble hop bitterness towards the finish. Simple but decent.

Aurelius (4379) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2008
Peppery malt aroma, light raisins. Medium rusty orange, fluffy one-finger head in a pilsener, average label. Crackery, rather plain lager flavor with just a little tin and toast. Lingering woody bitterness. Not sweet. Medium body. Just average.

hotstuff (4283) - Indiana, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Rated on 9-05-2009 at Crown Liquors Event (Bottle) This beer pours a small ivory fizzy head with a short retention, transparent orange body, very little carbonation, and no lacing. The Aroma is malty, earthy hops and spicy. Ditto for the Taste. The Palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer lacks character and has no WOW factor and thus a beer that is not on my list of beers to want again.

nick76 (4258) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2007
The aroma is malty with a bread element and a subdued hop presence. It’s not complex but effective. The appearance is amber with an average sized head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is typical for the style. This is a great example of an Oktoberfest beer.

cheap (4209) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2007
Slight candy aroma. Colored like iced tea. Comes on pretty bitter for a fest. Similar in behavior to many average malt liquors. Nice carbonation. Fairly bitter and insensitive, like many ales. Pilsner and alky metallic finish, hangs for a while. Don’t think this and Hacker belong in the same league.

vyvvy (4135) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 3, 2007
Pours copper / bronze with a moderate off-white head. The aroma is a little rich, but has some dryness, caramel malt, floral traits and almost an autumn leafiness ~ that sounds odd but its just what it reminded me of. Medium / thin body with some sharp carbonation. The flavors starts with dry caramel, woody traits and a leafy dryness. The finish has an even more earthy presence. A decent oktoberfest.

ben4321 (4097) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 17, 2009
Location: 12 oz Bottle from Norm’s, Sept ’08

Overall Impression: I enjoyed this one, had a great nose, some malty caramel flavors, and a solid taste that makes you feel like autumn.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Bottle from Tylers. This is a pretty shitty marzen. Not a huge fan of the style and this one is just not very good. Will not drink again.

Butters (3859) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 5, 2009
Sampled at the Second Cellar Reduction. Clearish orange amber with almost no head. Nose is sweet maple, caramel malt. Flavors are similar to the spaten, honey, toffee, biscuit, but this has a heavier malt component. Medium soft body with medium carbonation.
