rauchbier (3610) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2002
Bottled. Copper bronze, low head and moderate condition. Malty aromas with a spicy background of chocolate and a hint of melanoidin character. Sweet fruity malt in the mouth with more chocolate roast bitterness to balance and a chewy finish with a slight but lingering hop bitterness. Almost a pale version of a dunkel, if thats possible.

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 22, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 Draft: Light bronz, thick head..aroma was sticky and malty with brown sugarness roaming around..
Maltiness resembling metallica..germany reigns on and takes over the flavor..and to be honest..I'm not liking it..not one bit

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - NOV 20, 2002
Pours a nice clear copper color with a medium sized head. Aroma is full of malts with maybe just a hint of hops present. Medium bodied with a malty sweet beginning, middle, and finish. I detect a very slight hop presence in the finish, but not much. This beer is very smooth and drinkable. A good Octoberfest, but not outstanding.

Oktoberfest Marzen amber (different label, same brew im assuming)I’m noticing people with less beers rated gave this a higher rating. Ah well. The nose was like honey and barley and the first taste actually reminded me of a dull, yet sweet honey. Its not as malty as the Spaten version, but more subdued and astill very drinkable. i like how theres some bitterness that creeps in about 1/4 of the way through. It DOES have some nuttiness as mentioned earlier. Dry too....5 minutes later the honey is still all over this. Culd I be depseratly projecting my zealous pursuit to find honey in this..or am I well founded in this endeavour? Who’s to say. Note the massive head i can see in the bottle...someone below me must ahve had a dirty mug. And ive spent far too long on this rating. Conclusion: the flavors are totally meshing well..nut, barley, honey, bitterness. I like it. Screw it I came back to rate this higher.... I REALLY like this.

Nutty and sweet, a very good Oktoberfest beer.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 2, 2002
This pours a deep amber color with medium head. Lots of toasted German malt aroma. The palate is malty, but balanced well with flavorful Hallertauer hops. Smooth, crisp finish.

Brown colour; aromatically malty, with smokey undertones. Nicely drinkable.
