This brew is a right nice rendition of a marzen/oktoberfest beer! Not much hops detected and not overly sweet. Tastes good and is very refreshing. It was hard to fight not chugging this one down cause it is so tasty and so smooth! Fall is in full swing so its time to start enjoying the fall season brews!

Pours a rich, shiny brown, or copper, with minimal white head. Smells sweet of the malts and is reminiscent of autumn. Tastes sweet, almost like maple syrup but not quite; the Munich and Vienna malts work wonders together. Medium-bodied, with a slightly sticky texture and carbonation that is less than expected from a lager, Real Ale’s Oktoberfest finishes a little sweet and almost dry. I was surprisingly impressed.

A very appealing O-fest. Creamy mouthfeel with wonderful malty goodness. TBS- the malt is not overt in any way, but restrained and subtle. A lovely beer that I wish had been around a few weeks ago when O-fest were what I was craving.

12oz bottle. A nice clear orange with a smallish head at first that fades to a thin rim of foam, along with a little lacing. Aroma is sweet and caramelly. Flavor brings some nice rich caramelly malt with just a little bit of spiciness and very restrained hop character. Really nice smooth palate. Just a very enjoyable Oktoberfest. I’d happily drink a few more of these...

Courtesy of northernbrews. Bright amber, minimal head. Aroma is dead on, toast, caramel, very faint roast, noble hop background, earthy, well balanced. Malt comes through a bit more in flavor, hop character balances through finish. Medium carbonation. Well done.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer pours a dark amber with a thin off white head that dissipates quickly. The aromas are dough, cinnamon, and oil. The mouthfeel is oily and bitter with a doughy chewiness about it. This was a good beer. Cheers!

This is a really enjoyable beer that showcases the potential of lager. Beer pours cloudy, reddish amber in color with a nice thick, totally retained beige colored head. Aromas of caramel and hay are present. Taste is mostly sweet with a bit of hop bitterness in the finish. Prost!

A nice looking marzen, deep orange and perfectly clear, with a good light orange head.
Aroma and flavor are complete malt bombs, perfect for an octoberfest beer. Tastes like they went heavy on the Munich malt, perhaps my favorite of all malts. Hops provide bitterness to balance and a bit of crispness, but aren’t the stand-out for this one, only a balancer.
Easy drinking body and clean lager crispness make this a very tasty october treat. As usual, I am not disappointed in any way when I pick up RABC beers.
