Medium amber with a small head. Malty aroma wtih hints of toffee. Malt and caramel flavor finished kinda weak.

Starchy. Dry. Good appearance, and refreshing ice cold. Edgy hop presence. Nice bronze coloring. It’s 106° here in Phoenix, and this hit the spot. That said, it’s not a spectacular beer.

Draft at the Grey Lodge in Philly. Yhay another boring OFest. No spice, hops, or malt. Tasted what ir should be.

Slightly hoppier than other American Oktoberfest beers. Malty and some spiciness. I enjoyed this fall beer.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 13, 2004
Nice, rich, malty brew. From the name, I was expecting more hops. But the toasty malts dominated. Beautiful auburn color, with a light head. It is nice to see a fall "ale," I approve.

On tap at McG’s in the ’hem. A decent tho uncharacteristic Marzen. I did enjoy it thoroughly. Definitely worth a second try.

Honestly, I can’t seem to put my finger on this style no matter how hard I try. I mean, I can’t tell you what makes a good one and what makes a crappy one. I did like this beer, though, for reasons I cannot quite put into words. The Oktoberfest is officially MY ARCH NEMISIS OF BEER. EACH YEAR, WHEN THE FIRST CHILL OF AUTUMN CAN BE FELT IN THE WARM SUMMER AIR, I WILL SHUDDER AND CRINGE AND VOW THAT THIS YEAR WILL BE THE VERY LAST THAT I WILL BOW DOWN TO THIS MENACE OF A BEER STYLE! October 05... I WILL BE VICTORIOUS!

I am guessing this is the same "Oktoberfest" I had. Very roasty aroma . Quite sweet with brown sugar and caramel malts in the nose. Smells good. Transparent orange copper honey color with an off-white head. Malty, buttery, and somehwhat roasty start. Middle is way too thin. Finish is too hopped for the style. Cascade, piney hops to finish. Way off.

Copper Coloring. With Good Off-White Head. It Has a Good Balanced Aroma...but the Taste is More Hops. Sweet. Watery Overall.. If it Had More Malt Presence, it May be a Decent Brew.

Amber color with a medium head. Odd aroma of malt and hops, not your usual blend. Fairly dry taste from the hops. They are not as present as the hops in a Pale, but they are enough to say "Hi, how ya doin?" I really don’t want this kind of presence in my Oktoberfest.
