While Krones was working on SweetWater’s brewhouse, which they were 3 months behind schedule on (that part is true), one of their sour kraut engineers drove a gabelstapler over Mr. Dank’s toe and broke it. Mr. Dankenschnitzel jumped a flug to Krones HQ in Deustchland to pick up his large siedlung check. Looking to quell his T Pain, Dank beelined it to Oktoberfest in Munchen and into the arms of a friendly farulein who quickly uber serviert him. Stumbling blindly, Herr Dankenschnitzel, laden in lederhosen and longingly looking for a lovely loo, humpelte into the Bitterburger Brewery to drain the main vein. Unable to hold it any longer, Danken Guender feuer abegespritzt all over the control panel, short circuiting their infamous Oktoberfest bier. The beer no longer fit the rhinobutt purity law, so Hans and Franz kicked his arsch out of the mother land and told Danky doodle dandy to take that mischmasch back to SübWaßer with him.

Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average to large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with exceiient lacing. Moderate toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Bottle - gift from my friend Noel. Copper pour with a short, dense tan head. Aroma is caramel, bread, earthy notes, and dark fruit. Taste is big caramel and chewy malt up front with earthy hops, fruit notes, dark bread, grass and toffee behind them. Body is medium-full and rather chewy with a moderate, creamy carbonation. Finishes with more caramel, big malt, light toffee, dark fruit, bready notes, earthy hops and soft grassy notes. Tasty!

SpringsLicker (3458) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Pours mostly clear deep re3ddish amber under a sticky, off-white head. Bright, sweet fruity aroma. Sweet and syrupy. You could pass this off as an English Barleywine. Definitely not to style for a Oktoberfest/ Marzen.

Bomber to taster (thanks jmborggren). Looks good; a transparent brownish-orange with off-white lacing. Smells solid; doughy and hoppy. Tastes like it smells with a nice malty backbone that’s pleasant on the palate. A great example of the style.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Bomber. Poured deep, clear amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma and flavor were bread, some nutty malt and spicy noble hops, hints of wood, toffee. Slightly sticky mouthfeel. Medium weight. Alcohol is well-hidden. Pretty solid.

PorterPounder (7335) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Jacksonville, Fl - Grassroots Natural Market - 22 oz bomber. Pours a sparkling dark copper, light, but persistent off-white head that leaves a wee bit of lacing. Aroma is pleasant with some nutty accents, a hint of bubblegum. Flavor is interesting with some slight pear-like fruitiness, a bit of caramel, some brown sugar and a touch of ripening vegetables. Thick, sticky mouthfeel. Pretty solid.

Gachupines (1248) - USA - OCT 30, 2012
Amber color with a thick white head. Aroma is big nutty malt with some mild hops. Flavor is a good bit hoppier than a standard marzen, it’s actually like they took 420 and turned it into a Oktoberfest. Surprisingly good, but definitely not a traditional German Oktoberfest.

maxwelldeux (4348) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark amber color with a moderate white head. Very malty and slightly sweet in the nose. Slightly sweet and some hints of caramel in this nice example for the style.

NachlamSie (3279) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Bomber from Greenlife. Pours a cloudy amber hue with a sizable white head. The aroma is leafy with toffee and wood. I’m fairly pleased with this stronger marzen. It’s pretty crisp and the alcohol is not noticeable. The flavor has caramel goodness with plenty of cereal and bittersweet wooden notes. The hops definitely manage to come through on this one, but aren’t extra strong. Pretty decent, especially for a Georgian brewery who specializes in ales.
