Pours a clear amber with nice carbonation and a ver light white lacy head. Aroma is hoppy. Taste is sweet malt with a hint of hops. Nice rich mouthfeel. Good aftertaste. Not a bad beer!

phaleslu (6502) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Draft sample at Cincy Beerfest 2014 on Fountain Square. Pours a clear orange with a small off-white head. Notes of toasty and and sweet and crackery malts, straw, and leaves. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Simple, and one of the better Oktoberfests I sampled at the fest.

A decent octoberfect--a nice, rich maltiness that finishes crisp and dry. A bit watery/thin bodied, though, and a slight astringency in the finish.

12oz bottle. Cooper color with minimum head. Sweet malt aroma. Pretty standard malty taste for an American version, slightly sweet. Alright.

Chudwick (2145) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - FEB 15, 2014
12oz bottle in improper glassware - nose is floral and caramel with toast. Easy to drink. A little too sweet. Go Big Blue!!!! Makes me think of a mild doppelbock.

Clear medium amber pour with a red hue. Very nice head and lacing that lingers. Very slight nose of sweet caramel malt. Light medium body and well carbonated. The flavor profile is laid back, as a marzen should be. It has a very nice balance of caramel malt sweetness and flavor with just a hint of hop bitterness. The carbonation yields a crisp finish identical to the flavor profile. Thirsty Dog is becoming one of my favorite breweries. Another outstanding offering that is true to style.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Light biscuity aroma. Clear, medium brown pour. Flavor is stale, malty, and earthy. Filling mouthfeel. The malt flavor is not pleasant.

alobar (2776) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Clear copper pour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of bread and some caramel. Rather tasty with caramel, molasses, and grain balancing the sweetness. Creamy mouth feel. Very nice beer!

AirForceHops (3174) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 3, 2013
12 oz. bottle thanks to queenholly. Part of a side-by-side-by- side tasting. Clear copper pour without any lace in a lager glass. Roasted grains, fall leaves and German yeast in the aroma, nice. Flavor is toasted caramel malt, yeast, and light herbal hops. The caramel malt sweetness lingers a bit in the finish. A little thin in the body. Pretty ok and really is what the style should be.

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good for the style; a transparent caramel with fluffy off-white head. Smells sweet, malty, and doughy. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.
