Our first lager beer is brewed to the classic German style. Back in the day, brewers released this stronger beer to celebrate the start of fall brewing after hot summers. Now that we have high-tech refrigeration systems we brew all year, but still enjoy drinking Oktoberfest as the temps start to cool.

Superb example of a balanced and thoughtful Oktoberfestk Marzen. A nice strong beer for fall and beyond, with a nice hit of spices on the nose and a caramel finish. A great local Chicago beer.

12oz can from Savor Pint: amber pour, off-white head that disappears quickly leaving a ring. aroma of sweet caramel, cereal. tastes are moderately sweet cereal, little floral, nutty. not my favorite style, but seems like a good one.

sawbuck (462) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Aroma of caramel, fresh bread. Nice clear deep orange colr. Huge tan head, lingers a bit. Creamy rich malt up front. Charred caramel and some notes of toffee. Bitterness fills in quick, slightly off balance as sweetness dissipates quickly. Finish is on the bitter side but not off putting. slightly watery mouth feel. O.k.

Might be my favorite Oktoberfest. Perfect blend and flavor. Light caramel flavor with that hint of yeast. Love this beer and this time of year...

Fevernova (221) - Willoughby, Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2015
12 oz Can -- Pours deep amber with a very thin off-white head. Aromas of roasted malt, almond, caramel, and some mild bandage. Falls a little flat taste wise. A bit thin but pleasent.

Caramel and toast make up the aroma. Taste starts with sweet caramel and a toast like flavor to carry into the middle. It then finishes with herbal hops

mfhennig (163) - McHenry County, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2015
From a can, nice clear amber orange pour, minimal white head. Aroma is fresh bread, hints of caramel. Flavor is mild malts. This is really a better beer than the rated score. You could sit down and drink these all day. A really nice beer.

arminjewell (8752) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 2, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear amber pour with white head, aroma brought notes of toasted bread, biscuit, toffee into some slight grass, herbal hops with an earthy note, slight grainy-ness to it as well. Taste was a mix of grain, grass, biscuit into a bit of toffee, caramel, toasted bread and burnt toast, some spice, grass, finishing slightly dry.

Mahogany pour with a tan head. Aroma is not much. Taste is a light caramel malt. Ok beer.
