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!

12 oz. single bottle from Total Wine in Jacksonville, FL. Pours a very deep copper color with a foamy white head. Aroma is very light. Taste is malt, caramel is present and a nice roast and some hops. This is far better than some of the other Oktoberfests that I have tried so far. Well done.

jstraw (1906) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Copper with good, creamy beige head / Lightly sweet, malt nose / Medium body with hop backbone and good finish / Flavors of burnt sugar, tangerine, and a touch of pine on the finish / Surprisingly good effort from Mendocino.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2007
On tap at Barclay’s in Berkeley, CA. Pours a dull amber with gold edges and lasting tan head. Nice strength aroma of dark fruitiness, roasted malts, mild caramel and faint spices. The taste is similar to the aroma with prunes, dates and plums mixed with roasted malts and sweet caramelized malts. Nice rich malty offering of the style. The sweetness does build up a bit but not bad at all for the style.

as always Mendocino’s seasonal are an impressive lot. very deep velvet amber hues and a luscious dark fruit and earthy malts give this Marzen a very good holiday drinkability. it still holds up long after thanksgiving, trust me....now why would I lie to ya

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Bottle… Brilliant, clear, copper-colored lager with a small, fizzy, off-white head that dissipates in a heartbeat. Hearty caramel, burnt sugar and toasty, malty, frangrances rise from the glass. Full-bodied and a tad syrupy with tingly carbonation. Malty, sweet, caramel flavor. Hopped just enough to provide a semblance of balance. Malty, moderately sweet finish. Being a total malt head, I’m a big fan of this style. This one certainly didn’t disappoint!

zappafan99 (463) - ASCENSION ISLAND - DEC 25, 2009
Taste 12/9 bottle. Looks: Cloudy red body with a thin top. Aroma: Grainy and yeast. Taste: A good marzen that doesn’t have the stickiness some of this style have. A flavorful beer that beats out most other marzens I’ve had for balance and finish.

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 27, 2007
Medium dark copper brown colored body with a tan head. The nose is very fresh, and is mostly just a straightforward malt profile – biscuit malts, maple, wood, some moderate squash notes, some hay and corn… very fresh, very well-made and enticing. Flavor has some sweaty grains, hay, corn and squash up front, then some caramelized plum and wood notes. Medium bodied, with light roast and toasted grains and oak in the finish – resiny plum and wood, even. One of the better O-fests I’ve had in recent days.

12 oz. bottle pours a golden caramel color with little head. The aroma is light and crisp with herbal and apricot notes, but not sweet. Warm malty front palate with a mild nutmeg-like middle and smooth hoppy finish. Light carbonation. It’s reminiscent to me of raking fall leaves. Light and easy to drink; this would easily be a good session beer for me until I fell over due to the 6.1% ABV. Great accompaniment to a spicy buffalo chicken pizza. Would also work nicely with some roasted squash, or roasted fowl.
