This is the German version of the beer, described by Jackson in the 2000 Pocket Beer Book as "much paler (than Oktoberfest-Marzen in the US), golden, albeit still with a creamy aroma and pleasant malt accent."

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - NOV 2, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2006 The same impression as the Ur-Märzen, it’s good, and I think it’sok for a fest.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - OCT 25, 2004
Pours a clear golden/amber. Bubbly head. Aroma has some hoppiness and maltiness. Taste is malty, slightly caramelly, slightly sour with a dry finish. Smooth mouthfeel. Nice.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2004
Off-white long lasting head, yelow-golden colour, hoppy aroma, nice malty flavour, refreshing but not too heavy. I could drink liters of this, it is an esay-to-drink beer.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Pours with a big frothy head that laces well. Beer is light amber or yellow orange. Big malt nose with hints of hop aroma. Nice Hallertau flavor up front followed by malty sweetness that has some honey or bubble gum notes. Finish is dry, lacks some caramel flavors.

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2004 Bottled. The colour is pale, clear yellow. The white foam dissolves quickly into a small firm cover.

The smell is malty with some strains of bitter hops and a sourish touch.

The carbonation is powerful and long lasting, which suits the style well.

The first taste is a rather sweet, careful one that passes into an expectant bitterness with a hint of diacetyl. The bitterness increases, and I noticed a creamy note. A quite unusual mix of sticky bitterness and toffee candy dominates the aftertaste.

This is a fine example of the “Oktoberfest” style, I might say.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2004
This is a nice Oktoberfestbier. Quite fruity and easy to drink. Still round body. A bit too thin maybe.

I’m a little surprised at so many poor ratings as this is definitely one of the best Oktoberfest/Märzen style beers I’ve ever had. Of course, I may also be completely wrong and had something entirely different the other night. At any rate, I know this is a damn good Oktoberfest because I am sitting here with an Augustinerbräu and it is definitely not on par with Spaten. Augustiner is watery, bland and boring. Spaten on the other hand is 6 slender Biermädels dancing in your mouth, rubbing their foamy white heads all over your palate and quenching your thirst like few other things can. An exquisite balance of maltiness and hops.

Golden. Hoppy, sweet malt aroma. Hoppy flavour with tones of lightly roasted malt, chocolate, licorice and toffee. A bit sourish.
