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.

Very delicious beer. I shared a pitcher of this stuff with some friends at a beer garden in Astoria, Queens, NYC. A nice middle-ground beer: not too dark, not too light. Nice amber color, sweet taste and smooth body.

Pale golden, bubbly and quickly disappearing head. Aroma is somewhat hoppy. Has a bitter taste, but not a beer to remember.

A: The beer pours a light copper/dark amber color with a finger of off-white head. S: There is a touch of skunk on the nose, but I only get it at first. Otherwise, good sweet bread, caramel, and toffee aromas. Nice toasted malts along with some floral hops and a touch of spice. T: A smooth sweetness to the beer which is not overwhelming. Spiced bread, toffee, and caramel are all present along with some floral and spicy noble hops to balance the beer out. Very minimal bitterness, perhaps just a touch on the finish. M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation. O: It’s not my favorite Oktoberfest, but it’s not bad, and it’s readily available, so not a terrible choice.

Oakes (14841) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2007
Had this in bottle at a German restaurant in Victoria. Didn’t realize I hadn’t given it the RB treatment. Very good beer. Bright dark amber colour is bang-on. The aroma and flavour are clean and well-defined earthiness and caramel. There’s a touch of toastiness as well. Full body. The finish is excellent sweet caramel and I love the way the earthy hops sneak in there as well. The bit in the commercial description about "rich textured palate and underlying sweetness" is very apt. This is really, really good marzen. Now the question - if I can find it at a restaurant in Victoria, why not any bottle shop in BC?

bhensonb (13612) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Slightly roasted malt flavor. Deep coppery color. No real head. Sweet malt flavor. Then enough hop comes up to balance the malt; almost anyway. Medium bodied, but tends to thin. Carbonation is light to medium. The hop finally gets a chance in the finish, when things finallly seem to balance. Decent drink.

argo0 (12856) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 2, 2002
Medium amber body. Head pours big but doesn’t last long. Caramel malty aroma. Caramel malty taste supplemented with mild hoppiness. Nothing special about this one, celebrate Oktoberfest with something else.
