Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2004
Surprised to be the first person stateside to try this. Not much nose, just some light malts. Amber color, OK but fading head. Light bodied, slightly spritzy earth hop finish. Not bad, but not my thing.

Gmku (300) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 26, 2004
If for no other reason I had to try this because of the artwork on the label. Hilarious. There's a real nice heavy mouthfeel/body/taste here. Molasses, caramel flavor and aroma. Just enough hops to round it out. I think I prefer the even heavier feel of Hacker Pschorr's Oktoberfest, but this is very good.

Norton (333) - Southside, Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 15, 2004
Draft. Brown with orangish murky undertones. Miniscule whitish head. Lively carbonation. Despite the malty punch, an easy drinker. Nothing stand-out about it except for some extra alcohol kick.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 14, 2004
Nice red color, thin head. Nice malty flavor and aroma which taste/smell of sweet bread. Very light considering the alcohol. Good standard oktoberbest.

heemer77 (5290) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 4, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2005 Medium orange body with a persistent light yellowish head. The aroma is sweet caramel and a hint of apples. There also seems to be a little molasses. The taste is crisp and dry with apples and a little bit of toffee. There is definitely a quality of leafy greens here too. However, it does not detract. An interesting Oktoberfest.

Braudog (6284) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Orange amber beer with a big top that deflated quickly into a steadfast quarter-inch head. Sweet caramel aroma led to a smooth bittered cigar-malt beer. Very good.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - DEC 27, 2003
Pours a nice amber color with a decent head that quickly went away leaving no lace. Smells malty with a bit of spice. Taste is malty, yet spicy. Apple and other fruit esters are definately present. I'm not a huge Marzen fan, but this is pretty good. Most are overly sweet but this one is well-balanced and quite complex. Palate is nice and full. Overall, this is one of the best Marzens out there.

Ths is THE Octoberfest. All others have to tip their hats to the original. Nice amber/brown color with maltiness at the front when you open the bottle. I bought two cases of this at $.33 per bottle when a local grocery chain switched beers. heh. Maltiness with a slight hop presence. This is a toothsome beer with a smooth, easy drinking body. Nice carbonation and lace on the glass. Love the Salvator.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - NOV 17, 2003
Clear amber color with sweet malty aroma.Sweet hoppy taste with a little bitterness towards the end. Finishes like a typical marzen with that sweet candy taste.
