This is a pretty solid oktoberfest. Sweet, malty, with some nice crispness adding a bit at the end.

BeerandBlues2 (11471) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is toast and nutty malt, dates, earthy and spicy hops. Flavor is tart green apple and malt, vinegar, and vegetal with light hops and bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. Acetaldehyde is rampant in the flavor.

12 oz. bottle thanks to queenholly. Part of a side-by-side-by- side tasting. Dark copper pour with spotty lace. Aroma is sweet caramel and grain. Flavor is slight sweet malt and toasted grains, quaffable but not very exciting. Maybe it’s falling off… has that old malt flavor but not in a good way.

12oz bottle. Deep bronze with spotty white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt. Rich spicy malt flavor that starts sweet and finishes dry. Good fall beer.

keanex (1655) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2013
On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Crystal clear amber with a dense tan head that sticks around for a while.
Aroma: Prominent caramel with black cherry fruitiness.
Taste: Mildly malty with hints of caramel and a dry floral/earthy finish.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Solid marzen, drinks nice, but I could see this getting cloying having more than one.

BREWMUSKCLES (2473) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2013
full flavored and full bodied so the flavor is malty with a bit of rum and raisin. not quite rum but something like it. juicy and smooth the beer is a bit slick and seems sweetly sticky. some vanilla and caramel like profile. Fest on the powerful side with smooth carbonation.

In addition to what you'd expect from a typical Marzen, this year's Oktoberfest has a little pumpkin pie spice aftertaste and a little more residual sweet. Perfect color. Great taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dliberto (216) - Hampstead, Maryland, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Drank from a bottle. Nothing of major note on the smell. Tastes like a standard lager with some German malts. A little bready. Overall kind of meh. There better Oktoberfest beers out there.
