Bottle. A medium amber pour with short beige head. Aroma had a nice hint of spice which was not found in the flavor which tended to be more on the bitter side. Fizzy carbonation with a light body.

Intense orange glow with dense, profligate head. Dreamily earthy, walnut-infused aroma. Somewhat less complex flavor dominated by some caramel draped over sheafs of darkened grains baked into bread. Warm, dark-syrupy malts, molasses. Clean, nicely bittered finish. Perhaps a bit overbittered..

LePoopie (151) - Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2005
Aroma is acceptable. Has a nice darker golden amber color, with a little head. Flavor is OK, kind of bitter. Light body, with decent carbonation. Overall, it is acceptable.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - NOV 29, 2005
Pours with all the things that make a Mårzen nice: luminous amber/orange body with a lumpy lacing layer of foam. Initially, the aroma is a bright blending of spicy yeast, floral hops, and fresh bready quality. As the head settles, the aroma seems to flatten a bit too, getting just a bit flabby, though not unappetizing. Pleasant sweet toasty bread flavors, fine carbonation, clean finish. A bit less warm melanoidan I’d like, but a minor complaint. Medium body, not too thick to be a nice session beer. Nice example of the style.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - NOV 28, 2005
Kind of sweet, like sugarwater, mild toasty notes, some burnt caramel, mild sour/paper aftertaste. Meh. No defining characteristics and not much fun to drink.

Kevin (2148) - New Mexico, USA - NOV 16, 2005
dark tan pour and a white head. aroma is corklike. taste is wood, raw freshly cut wood with some stale caramel and an unpleasantbitterness that is like gagging on used fishing line. it is drinkable somehow, barely.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 16, 2005
12z bottle. Pours ruby-amber with minimal head. Bottled Sept22. Woody and malty in the nose, also cocoa and slight caramel. Medium bodied and nice in the mouth. Mild malt roast and a decent hop kick. Caramel flavors and well rounded. Really nice example of the style.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - NOV 8, 2005
My first surprise of St. Louis - finding a few local beers on tap in the hotel restaurant. Bright orange/amber, clear bodied with short head and good lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel malts. Medium bodied, plenty of caramel taste along with doughy bread and a dusty hop finish. Nice, but a little sweet for me.

porterdude (170) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 20, 2005
Bottle via beerhandy. A nice clear amber pour with a thin white head. Slight aroma of caramel malts and toasted malt. Tastes of toasted malts, german hops, and caramel. Background carbonation "bite" and a full bodied beer.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2005
12 oz bottle via trade with beerhandy - Thanks Chris! - Pours amber with a foamy offwhite head that settles back to a film and laces the edges of the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, and german hops. Flavors are caramel, toffee, and a fair hop finish. Palate is lighter than other oktoberfests that I’ve tried. Not bad!
