Faint yeast and biscuit aroma. Pale amber gold with a decent foam. Slight hop presence upfront falling into a distinct caramel sugary malt in the back. Some oat and wheat undertones on the finish. I’d give this a B- rating.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden-orange color with almost no head. Very light floral bits to the nose of this. Much lighter and not as malty as I expected. A little bready, but not bad. One of the better oktoberfests I’ve had.

Lukaduke (2184) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Pours a pale straw color with good clarity and three plus fingers of fizzy foam. Aromas are bready with hints of honey sweetness... which in fact is exactly what the beer tasted like... a loaf of honey wheat bread which I enjoy but I missed the touch of bitterness in the end to dry it out.. got a bit sticky on the aftermath.

Bready malty aromas. Bready malt flavors with a little sweetness. Overall a pretty decent fest beer.

650ml bomber pours a pale amber orange color with a 2 finger white head that settles to reveal some decent lacing. Aroma is caramel with some cereal grains, grass and citrus. Taste is caramel malty sweetness with some toasted grains and a bit of nuttiness and a grassy citrus hop bitterness. Light bodied with good carbonation leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate. A very well done German lager style beer and highly recommended.

Koelschtrinker (10643) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 26, 2012
Herber, etwas wässriger Beginn. Geringe Bitterkeit, nur sehr leicht hopfig, leider etwas metallern zum Schluss. Ein immerhin trinkbares, nicht komplet laffes Lager. 7/8/9/9/9/9

Brilliant golden color. A slight chill gave my taster a really pleasant quality on a blistering hot day. Really refreshing, but fairly forgettable. Had on tap at Lansdale Beer Fest.

Originally reviewed: 11/2/11. A friend brought this over to the house last weekend for our annual pumpkin-carving-beer-tasting party. Split and poured into a mug. This beer pours a dark amber/orange with a thick bone-white head on top. A fair amount of lace left behind after each sip. The nose is sweet with caramel, pale fruits, and faint floral tones. Good body as the carbonation bulks this up a bit. Moderate chew to it. Sweet caramel malty flavors start things out, but then a refreshing hoppy bite closes it out. I like that interplay with the hops. Nice refreshing Marzen that I will gladly have again. Thanks, Jared!
