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.

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.

This beer is very close to the Spaten. The only real differences are in the color of the body, which is a darker and more pleasing copper in the Paulaner, and the flavor, where the Spaten holds a slight edge due to the slightly sweeter nature of the malt. All in all, A great Oktoberfest.

Allseeingeye (223) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2002
Copper red brown. Fat head dribbling back down to rejoin the brew. Malt and hop smell. Thin head still hanging on. Somewhat watery body. malt and slight hops on the end. Low CO2.

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2002
Bronze hued brew with medium head and fine, web-like lace...Aroma light but with malt, hops and yeast all in evidence...Flavor features a firm sweet malt bottom with a light spicy hop top-end...Carbonation is kept suitably light...This is well-balanced and smooth, with medium body appropriate for style. This is a bit mellower than some (such as the spicier Spaten) but is still flavorful and a very enjoyable reminder of the autumn season.

Amber in color. Slightly bitter. Hoppy- bitter finish.
