12oz bottle pours golden with a short creamy white head that stays fairly well and leaves some lace. Aromas of caramel, some bread, and some spicy german hops. Flavor is mostly malts, lots of caramel, a touch of toffee, toasted malts, and slight bitterness. Fair carbonation and a soft creamy mouthfeel. Not bad.

kramer (4994) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear and slightly thin looking light copper body with a minimal fizzy off-white head. The nose is slightly sweet with a toasty and slightly nutty maltiness. There’s a slight chemical like note in here that I can’t quite identify, maybe it’s just an odd spin off from the hop bill though. The flavor is a little bit on the thinner side, but it’s pretty smooth and fairly well lagered. Finishes with some caramel and light roast with some minimal bitterness. Light bodied and a little thin with soft fizzy carbonation. Not bad, I could have a few of these before they get old.

trapped (784) - New York City, TURKEY - OCT 11, 2013
Drought. Slightly hazy amber color with creamy beige head, very little doughy aroma hint of nutmeg, low carbonation, sweetish taste, abrupt finish. Nice but not remarkable for me.

Imaena (1834) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle. This bottle is a little old which is a caveat on this rating. The aroma is very faintly of malts and caramel. The appearance is golden caramel with a very thin head on the pour. The taste is all malt a faint metallic finish. It is a little thin on the palette for the style. Overall a middling Marzen at best.

Cybercat (3332) - Georgia, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Strong aroma is crisp and malty with a fruity undertone, mainly apple plus some pear. Pours a clear, bubbly amber with a thick, fluffy ivory head. Malty flavor has hoppy and fruity hints, typical but still pleasing. Smooth texture has a fair amount of tingle and firmness. Prost!

mikemccarthy (91) - Huntington, West Virginia, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Pours a translucent gold with a thin, white head that quickly fades. Weak lacing. Subtly sweet aroma. Lightly effervescent mouthfeel. Unobtrusive, bordering on weak, flavor. Neither offensive nor memorable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for the Daystrom M-5

DrinkEmUpJones (1062) - Georgia, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Hazy yellow orange color with lots of effervescents. Thin white lacing. Classic musky aroma with a slight green/citrus note. Smooth palate with a crisp finish. Bitter finish sticks around a little longer than most other Oktoberfest style beers. Good but not great for the style.
