this is a very good marzen! nice octoberfest aroma slightly hoppy and pours well into glass. caramel and malt flavors with just the right amount of quality sweetness. very well balanced with creamy carbonation and a pleasant ly mild array of citrus notes. best octoberfest i ever had.

750mL bottle, courtesy of jasonp. Thanks, Jason! Pours a clear, medium honey-orange color; pretty much headless. Candy sugar and maple syrup in the aroma; slightly watery and corny. Medium sugar and overripe fruit (oranges, some bananas?) but not much else in the mouth; mild carbonation; very boring rendition of an often boring style; light, sugar and orange finish.

3fourths (9015) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2007
22oz bottle shared by jasonp. Golden clear colored body. Nose of maple and amaretto/liquer/almonds. Flavor of wet and slick floral corn and soggy grains, with some sweet lemon and corn flavors that tend not to linger in the finish. Below average o-fest.

Stine (1745) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Poured from a bomber. Completely clear and off-putting appearance of a browned yellow hue, rather like an expiring pear skin. Direct honeycomb and tin aroma; maple syrup and oatmeal cookies, with a certain adjuncty weirdness. Similarly, a very sweet taste; caramel in the syrupy kind that’s prone to overpower a latte. Thin, slightly metallic, with a quiet hint of sweet smoke. Loose in the mouth, lacking a substantial malt strength. More munich and less sugar would be lovely, but this fails to fulfill itself. Thanks for sharing, Jason!

Bottle (650ml) shared with tupalev, jerc & mabel -- courtesy of jerc & mabel. Pours a clear bubbly gold with a small diminishing white head. Aroma and flavour of light spicy hops, caramel malt and grain. Average bodied. Seems pretty much on style but it doesn’t do much for me. Just alright.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 16, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Jerc and Mabel, shared with them and Blankboy. Odd funky yeasty aroma. Dark yellow, small white head. Tinny hop taste, slightly sweet. Light malt sweetness grew on me, I enjoyed by the end, but it took a while to get in to.Simple decent stuff here.

jercraigs (9447) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2007
Bottle from Premier Gourmet. Orangey amber body with moderate white head (3+). Sweet malty aroma, touch of caramel. (6+) Similar flavour of sweet caramel and toasty malt. Very light bitterness. (6+) Average palate. A solid example of the style, tasty and quaffable, but simple.

White head on a dark amber body. big malt aroma. big malt flavor but lacks complexity. Not the worst but not the best either.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden body with nice head. Aroma is of toasted malt, corn, grain. Flavor is slightly bitter, malty and grainy. Finishes slightly bitter with some sweet honey. A decent sipping oktoberfest.

The usual malty flavor for an Oktoberfest - not enough hop flavor. A average Oktoberfest - kinda disappointing considering Sly Fox is a great brewer.
