Great oktoberfest. I am especially impressed with this beer compared to most of the others in the St. Arnold collection. Hoppy/yeasty initial impression, deep aber brown hue, wonderful hints of hops and strength as the beer progresses. Still maybe not quite up there with the best of the German ones, but its pretty good.

Rated based on notes taken 8 Oct 2012 -- Good Marzen. High on the Munich malt keeps this beer really sweet and delicious.

Particularly sweet malty flavor. Little touch of alcohol taste. Nice weight and body. Great beer.

Bottle pour is Amber colored, light thin head. Well carbed. Aroma of malt and light funk. Medium bodied balanced beer. Hard to say much else

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: clear amber orange, with half a finger of foamy, near white head and minimal lacing. Aroma: caramel malts, light toffee, a hint of honey and cereal and brown toast. Taste: as the aroma indicates, plus a bit of toasted nuts and a hint of grassy hops. Finish: crisp and slightly sweet, with just a bit of caramel and nuts and grass. Notes: Enjoyable Okto. Good palate, flavor was balanced, body was good. Solid all-around example. Bottle from Buddy’s (Drive-Thru!) Beer Barn in El Paso, Texas.

Had not rated this in the past for some reason. Today I am doing a comparison of several Oktoberfests from various brewers and this one is among them. So far it is par with other Oktoberfest brews. So for an Oktoberfest it is a good one for the style.

From bottle. Nice autumnal orange color. No head or lacing. Nose is underwhelming--water and some malt. Good carbonation. Excellent flavor sweet in the beginning and bitter in the finish. Probably my favorite Oktoberfest.

What can I say about the Saint Arnold Oktoberfest? They just get better every year, need to enjoy it off tap and have some sauerkraut and bratwurst with it.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear amber, not much head. Nose is faint malt. Taste is watery malt, with a slight caramel note. Not a lot here. Nothing great, just very average.
