Dark copper color with a white foamy head. A full flavor of sweet fruity esters. The body is full and well-rounded, with a nice mellow finish. My favorite Octoberfest ... one of best things about fall in the Twin Cities.

akoeninger (415) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Amber colored with white head. Earthy, damp aroma with hints of sweetness, toffee, and nuts and faint floral hops. Smooth, sweet and rich up front with some lingering floral hops. Mediumish body. Medium carbonation. A solid Oktoberfest. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thegreenrooster (3194) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Pour is a brown with a small white head. Aroma is a lager wet paper bag with a bit of toasted malt. Flavor is a better showcase of the malt. A decent, rich malt with very low bitterness. Finishes very clean and refreshing for a marzen. Could have used a bit more body to it but I guess this is a decent attempt.

TXBadger (1345) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Pours a nice deep amber color with off-white head. Caramel malt, roast, and some wheat on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more malt flavors.

Bottle at home from early backlog notes 07/08. Pours a clear orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have some caramel, biscuity and toasted malt, some earthy notes. Nose was pretty weak. Worth trying once.

Nice but just that. Quite thin and more like a lager. Some hints of Märzen style but just that much.

From a bottle. Pours medium copper brown with a creamy bubbly beige head. Tastes like malt, grains, nuts, light spice, light caramel. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells malty and nutty.
