Amber balanced pour with a lot of roasted malt flavor. Can’t taste a ton of hop in this Marzen, but a lot of nice spices are present in the aroma- a crisp taste and a slightly powerful carbonation, but overall, this Oktoberfest is a pretty decent brew.

Good color... copper amber. Smells of sweet malt. A bit neutral, sweet... smooth. Not bad.

We have only tried this at a small tavern in Mt Angel, OR, home of the Oktoberfest. The tavern we originally tried it at is closed now and in it?s place is the tavern/eatery called the Drunken German. Not as good as the Optimator but I would never turn it down.

One of the few beers that I will drink more than 1 of at a time. Beautiful malty-sweet aroma and taste. Medium brown color, crystal clear and just tasty. Every year I look forward to when the local grocery store starts to carry this beer and then the yearly german culture picnic at the park which serves this on tap. When the last bottle is taken from the fridge towards the end of December it is a moment of ceremony for us.

Light copper from the bottle with foamy off white head. Malty aroma not much more. Malty semi sweet flavor that blends beautifully with the noble hops. Feels full bodied with light carbonation. Really enjoyed this beer, exemplifies the old world malts well. Went perfectly with an outdoor lunch in the spring.
