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.

I would rate this beer solidly average. Some Oktoberfest beers have you waiting for autumn, but I found this beer to be wanting in distinction.

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear amber brown, smooth one-finger ivory head, low sheets of lace. Aroma is appealing malt. Taste is edgy caramel malt that blooms as it moves to the palate, then it turns to carbonation for balance in the finish. A basic, but delicious oktoberfest, solid in all aspects.

12 oz bottle pours a amber/brown color with a small white head. Aromas of light caramel, yeasty bread, light floral. Light bodied, a nice representation of this style

Rated from notes taken 2 Sep 2011 -- Drank at an Oktoberfest beer tasting. This beer was my second favorite behind Paulaner. Good malty fall brew.

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.
