Nice deep amber color, with a short lasting head. Moderately full body, but a little too sweet for my taste. Not much bitter, appropriate for the style I guess.

I really liked this beer. It was very smooth and easy drinking. Aroma was fresh and not over powering

I'm not a huge fan of the Oktoberfest style but I enjoyed this one,has a medium body, not too assertive, overall a fine brew

Light brown color, clear, decent head formation. Creamy, malty, chocolaty aroma with a touch of fruit. Initial sweet malty flavor, truns dry and toasty in the middle, finishing with a slight bitterness and sourness.

Ok bought in the 12 oz long neck..I like the label..looks like a great party going on!
Anyway this is quite a nice looking Marzen..dark amber with a smallish off white head..nice carbonation..head goes fast but leaves attractive lace.
Smell is rather odd though..a creamy milky aroma..with some nice malt in the background...strange but not offensive.
Not too bad a taste for Pete's..nice malts..at first not toosweet and a small hop bitterness at the end.
pretty average on the palate.
quite drinkable..not bad really

Lots of walnuts and earthy flavor, too much IMO. Acidic in a way that made you either want to drain or pour it. One of the worst O'fest I've had.

Clear copper body with small beige head. Aroma is sweet and caramel. Taste is earthy caramel, pretty run of the mill. Medium, slightly sticky body.

This is one of the finer Oktoberfest's. I actually turn down the Sam Adam's version and Beck's version if this was at the bar.

Nutty is right and fast drinking is right as well.
This stuff is good with a capital G. The color is incredible and I love a foam that is orange even after it settles a bit. Do I taste some pumpkin? Maybe...tasty stuff.

Pretty good. Definately some nutty flavor in there. It went down pretty fast.
