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.

Draft at Olde New York in State College. Amber pour with white head. Toasty malted sweetness with some hop bitters. Good for the style.

dlihcsnatas (328) - Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2014
In a taste test against other Oktoberfest brews this was at the top. Very good Oktoberfest brew but being from Germany it had better be a good one.

Appearance is clear, amber/brown with an off white foam cap that quickly dissipated. Aroma is toast and dark fruit. Taste is rich caramel with hints of toast and a little roasted malt. Seems to have a slight toastiness not found in other oktoberfests, an less of rich caramel sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a little harsher hop bite, likely from the hard water. Good beer, but prefer Paulaner for a German Oktoberfest

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours orange/amber, with a moderate white head that quickly fades. Nose is malt and bread. Taste is malt, with a sweet note. finish is crisp and short, with just the right amount of hop bitterness. A classic Marzen.

EtTuCthulhu (1110) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - OCT 9, 2014
The color of this beer is a brown color with a hint of orange to it and a medium white head. The aroma is reminiscent of lager yeast and caramel malts, aand the taste is mildly sour and a touch sweet due to a slightly caramel flavor. The aftertaste is fairly abrupt but is a bit sour, and the palate fuses a thin texture, medium-light body, and an average carbonation.

Really really nice beer - like this style a good deal, and its a pretty delicious version, which hopefully hasnt changed much since being subsumed into a giant multinational corporation.... want to have one w/ dessert next to the woodstove soon!

joejames (157) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours light amber, two finger quick head, no lacing but good retention. Malty nose. Nicely balanced taste. Light bodied, light small bubble carbonation, silky mouth feel. Finishes semi-sweet with notes of toasted malts, bread, earthy herbs. Very good example of the style.
