COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AUTUMN - Traditionally brewed to celebrate the harvest season, this reddish-brown lager has a rich caramel character and a long flavorful finish. Its delicious malty sweetness is nicely accented by a slightly fruity bouquet and a mild hop flavor.

A sweeter interpretation of the style, a bit muddy flavorwise but tending towards general caramel maltiness. Lacks the complexity of the Full Sail Marzen, but still a really good version of the style.

On tap. Very good Oktoberfest, malty, thick, and sweet. One of the better American examples of a Marzen.

Draft. Deep amber color with off-white head; minimal lacing. Toasted malt aroma. Caramel malt upfront. Sweet finish with slight bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

popephred (257) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Poured this lager cold into a Samuel Adams glass. The pour yielded a small off-white head with a red-brown,cloudy, body, with minimal lacing, Note of spice are dominant in this brew, with a metallic aftertaste which linger throughout the tasting. A medium body, though any sweetness that could be had from the malts is drowned out by the previously mentioned aftertaste.

wow, refreshing, zippy, what a night, what a beer! Here I am, living, being alive! What a treat. I’m watching Gross Point Blank and sipping this sweet nectar. Ambrosia. Oh what a joy. A long down diluted with an evening treat.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2014
[Bottle] Bright orange colored pour with a soapy head. Nose is of caramel malts, crisp hops and a light earthiness. Taste is of toasted breads, caramel, grassy/herbal hops, toffee and grains. Good body for the style. Nice and drinkable. Tasting notes from 12/2011.

Normal Oktober one. Not much thickness anf fine features. Very nice to drink but just that.

jbuskirk (486) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - DEC 30, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2014 For a beer that doesn’t come from the land of bratwurst, Sprecher’s Oktoberfest tastes a lot like the genuine artifact. The malt’s caramel quality is supple but balanced by a light, crisp hopping. Big on flavor but low on bitterness, this lager is an autumnal treat, one that begs to be paired with sausage or other spiced meats.

Aroma is sweet and enticing, but flavor is slight and on the sweet side with poor balance. Creamy lingering flavor is probably the highlight of a weak Marzan.
