COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A malty rich lager brewed in the style of German fest beers. Like the Fall season, red and juicy best describes this beer.

The beer appears average with a clear orange hue, a one finger white head, and decent lacing on the glass. The beer smells average as it has a mild malty/caramel blended nose. The beer tastes great as you get a decent malty flavor that is followed by a toffee/caramel finish, very strong flavors as opposed to the nose. The mouthfeel is decent as the beer is well carbonated and leaves you somewhat dry. Overall, the smell lacked and the taste didn’t...not a bad marzen.

One of the better marzens I’ve had over the years. Nice amount of sweet caramel malts. A lager that I would order more than one of is saying something, and this is one of them.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a crystal clear, copper-gold colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is a light malt sweetness with some grains and a bit of a bland fruit. Flavor is better. Somewhat grainy, lightly toasted malts with a touch of toffee-bread sweetness. Very light earthy hopping comes in to balance with a light fruit as well. Finishes clean and mostly dry with a very light bitterness before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Medium-light body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, an alright Oktoberfest. Nothing special, but easy drinking and well balanced.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4831) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2011
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a bright orange color with a huge foamy orange-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was tangy faint vague fruits. The flavor was dryish and nutty with a bit of perfume. Medium finish and body. Eh.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2011 Re-rated. Last month (first batch) was undrinkable. This is their second batch of the season. On tap at brewpub. Light orange with thin white head that disappears. Aroma is very faint straw. Flavor is straw and a little caramel. Dry for an Oktoberfest. Solid marzen

iride15 (237) - Rockledge, Florida, Florida, USA - OCT 17, 2009
On tap at the brewery. Poured a bronze copper with a small off white head. Simple aroma of malts and grains. Flavor lacks the kick. Bland and little hop. Forgets the oktoberfest tradition and just mimics the taste poorly. Not a great oktober, but a decent beer still.

DocLock (7721) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Draft. Pours brownish copper wirh ruby edges and an off-white head. Nose is Wheaties, nuts, caramel malt. Tastes of grainy cereally malt, mild brown sugar, nuts, hops, and tannins. A decent marzen.

TreborWhip (392) - Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2009
Bought a growler of this and drank it while tailgating at the Penn State vs. Temple football game. It retained it’s carbonation for about 24 hours. Nice, thick, tan head with reddish orange body. Slightly sweet, and I agree not a whole lot of flavor, very little bitterness.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2008
Draft at brewpub. Poured a clear filtered bronze color with an amber hue. Small off-white head present. Aroma is a little earthy, but in general of sweet malts. Tastes of caramel malt, wet grains, earthy, light fruits and very mellow hops. I’m not a huge Oktoberfest drinker, but this one wasn’t bad for what it was.

Draught at the brewpub. Pours bright amber orange with small off-white head. the aroma is sweet and malty with a good dose of caramel and a little bit of hay. The flavor is leaves and caramel, some hay, and a slight grassy dryness. Pretty good.
