12 oz bottle. Pours amber with a long lasting white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of sourdough and hint of grassy hops. Body is medium and smooth. Caramel malt and herbal hops are balanced on the palate. Finish is short and slightly sweet. One of many good Oktoberfests.

Tried this beer on tap at The Saint Arnold Brewery in Houston, TX. This Oktoberfest marzen is malty with yeasty bread, caramel and spice notes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From notes, 9/19/11: Poured a 12oz bottle into a dimpled stein. A: Burn orange to amber, 1 finger head dissipates into a thin rim that laces the glass on the way down. S: Bready and caramel malts, that’s about it. T: Caramel malts up front, then bready malt along with hint of Saaz hops. M: A bit thin for an Oktoberfest, carbonated just right for the easy-drinking style. O: If I had to choose a Texas-made Oktoberfest, I’d opt for Rahr or even Shiner over this one. Solid choice and worth trying, though.

Meh. Uneventful, syrupy, makes me look forward to winter. Not bad but I will not seek it out in the future.

Beerenberger (1377) - Fischer, Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Aroma is weak but toasted malts and bread come through. Pours a rich clear amber with a mostly diminishing white head. Taste is malty with bready notes. Medium bodied and smooth with minimal carbonation. Overall, its ok but nothting to write home about.

Saint Arnold Oktoberfest has a medium, cream-colored head, a mostly clear, amber appearance, some streaming bubbles, and a little bit of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of medium-roasted malt, brown bread, some sweetness, and that’s about it. Taste is the same, with a slight cherry undertaste and low bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Saint Arnold Oktoberfest finishes crisp, refreshing, and drinkable. This is a winner. RJT

On tap at the Ranch. Pours copper with little to no head. Bubblegum, caramel, straw. Moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Medium smooth body. Meh.

Deep copper pour. Toasted malt aroma. Taste is malty with a hint of spice. A little bit of a watered down finish. Ok. ---Rated via iPhone

Copper pour, no real head. Caramel and malt on the nose. Sweet on the tongue. Finish is malt, carbonation, and a late slight hop bitterness. Doesn’t really stand out.
