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.

Great Bavarian beer! This is a perfect representation of the style. Nice creamy head, toasty malt, and Carmel notes ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured into a pint glass out of a growler. Pours a clear light copper with a thin half-finger white head. Pretty average head retention and lacing. Nothing outstanding but fairly respectable. Aroms has some toasted caramel mixed with hay and grass. The hope do come through but are kept in check by the malt. Maybe a touch of honey as well. The flavor really brings together the malt and hops with each being very balanced. It starts out with some toffee and honey perfectly mixed with grassy hops. Mild sweetness throughout but it is appropriate for the style. Light bitterness is enough to keep with sweetness in check and makes this quite drinkable. Overall, a respectable oktoberfest and probably one of the better ones available in the States. Pretty readily available and worth picking up.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber brown with a medium sized white head. Malt and sweetness on the nose. Medium bodied, sweet caramel and malt. Not much going on. Soft caramel and light bitterness on the finish.

good example of the style - this or Ayinger is what I’d give a newb to show them what it is supposed to taste and smell like.

Drought. Copper red with large creAmy white head, slight caramel aroma, low carbonation, well balanced roasted malt taste, abrupt finish. Well rounded and smooth marzen, very enjoyable.

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
