Not too impressive. Standard looking Oktoberfest, same malty flavor, but I detected a distinct sourness in it.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2005 Fantastic light fruity smell, like an IPA. Great color, taste, flavor. The only drawback I find is that it is not as full or filling as I would like. On a re-rate, and after knowing fully what this style is, this beer is certainly at or near the top.

Smooth beer with a hoppy flavor. Good flavor.It had a rich creamy head. Very clean. Amber in color. I liked it. Pleasant fest beer to drink.

Not bad but not my favorite. Mine said on the label "Oktoberfest/Marzen" and directly beneath "Amber". I'm rating it here because the rest of the label is correct. Not a bad Marzen comparable to Samuel Adams in flavor to me. Capital is still my favorite followed closely by leinies Oktoberfest.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - OCT 3, 2003
Bottled. Clear copper. Head is very slightly off-white and diminishing. Malty nose. Tastes malty with a bit of hoppiness. Slightly bitter finish. Overall the taste reminded me more of a Helles than a Märzen. A little disappointment.

Pretty good, for what it is. Better than I expected, at any rate. "Amber" normally reads as "crap" in my dictionary.

aaronh (201) - McMurray, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2003
Pours with a nice white head on a copper body. The aroma is fabulous, with sweet floral smells and a hint of spices reminiscent of nutmeg. The head leaves a light lace on the glass. The flavor is very rewarding. Sweetness balanced wonderfully by hop bitterness. This is my favorite O'fest by far.

egajdzis (5550) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2003
Sampled at the Ludwig's Garten Oktoberfest party. Poured a brownish red color with a small head. Had a strong diactyl aroma and the taste was that of caramel, diactyl and a signature lager. This was pretty decent.

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 25, 2003
UPDATED: APR 20, 2010 On draft. Pours a beautiful dark copper/amber with medium white head. Aroma is surprisingly fragrant with pear and apple tones. Smells delicious. Flavor is same with addition of nicely balanced malt and a very smooth finish. Creamy on the palate. I had no idea Oktoberfest beer could be so tasty. Perhaps I need to try others as well.

Shag (2678) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 23, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2003 Good malty and floral aroma. Amber colored with nice lacing. Complex flavor that is slightly bitter but mostly malty. Creamy mouthfeel. I am enjoying this alot more than I expected. Fantastic!
