COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Cloudy amber color with a mild hoppy smell and a watery palate. Nice bubbly acidy taste. Decent beer for a cold day.

Its a great octoberfest beer. Very light and amber pour, nice with a little bit of hoppiness in its flavor. Medium body.

goz (358) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Very light amber pour, small white head that leaves quick and laces little. Aroma is light, some light toast and a bit of flowery hops in there as well. Flavor is mostly some sweet breadiness, a bit of toastiness, and a very little bit of hoppiness. Medium-thin body, light carbonation.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - SEP 21, 2003
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.

egajdzis (5860) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2003
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!

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 18, 2003
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.

brownaler (478) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - SEP 10, 2003
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.

jgb9348 (5428) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2003
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.
