Amber in color. This medium bodied beer has achieved its impeccable taste by balancing the roasted malt flavor with the perfect amount of hops. Having a rich textured palate with an underlying sweetness true to tradition.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2003 Sort of a light brownish amber color with an excellent creamy head and fair lacing. Mild aroma-meadowlike and citrusy. Light to medium bodied, caramely sweet with a tangy note to it and a touch of salt. The finish was pleasant and slightly bitter. This one is my favorite of the current crop so far.

Nice deep brown-red color, off-white head. I liked the sweet malt flavor and the hops nicely balanced it out. This is a pretty average Marzen, but at least it's a quality one.

Poured a golden amber color. It had a medium sized off white head. The aroma was malty, slightly citrusy hop aroma. It had a dry leathery, yeasty flavor. First Oktoberfest of the season!

12 oz bottle, lager mug, 50 degrees. Gigantic, tan, creamy, frothy off white head diminishes slowly. They body is an amber to brown-orange color and is crystal clear with moderate carbonation. Caramel, cookie malt (mod); flowery hops (light); apple and pear aromas. Incredibly clean and smooth tasting compared to the Sam Adams I had earlier. Moderately sweet throughout with a lightly bitter finish. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Filling for an Oktoberfest. The bottom line is: a great malty lager that's readily available.

Smells like road-kill, but tastes pretty good. Flavor is a mellow malt, and slightly metallic.

This is my first Oktoberfest beer I've tried. It certainly has an interesting flavor which one can be easily identified this as a German beer. While I don't think I am totally in love with this beer, it is certainly a nice change of pace.

Amber colour with almost no head! Smells of malt with a bit of spice thrown in. Medium-bodied; A strong malty flavour with a bit of the harsher (pepper, etc) spices also showing through. A pretty good beer, not great, and all-around a decent beer for the style. I had my pint from Draught at MacGregor's in Rochester, New York.

Oktoberfest is here. Amber-red color. A light malty aroma. Dry roasted malt character. Somewhat watery, a slight buttery aftertaste. Very refreshing.

Orange-copper color and lively carbonation. Lightly toasted malt aroma plus some grassy hops. Warm flavor. Has some elements in common with Spaten Premium Lager, except this beer has significantly fuller body and flavor. Santa Fe Ski Area serves this beer on the mountainside and it tastes particularly good during a ski break in the beautiful alpine environment of the southwestern United States.
