COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Old time brewers in Germany made a malty, high gravity beer in March (Maerzen) which they consumed with great ceremony in the fall. The coincidence of a royal betrothal in the autumn of 1810 gave Bavarian beer lovers ample justification for the two-week long bash known as Oktoberfest.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2010 Newtown Brewfest 06. Pours a nice clear orangey amber with a nice fluffy white head and good lace. Aroma is toasted and munich malts, bready lightly nutty and has a nice clean assertive noble hop character. Clean bready and malty flavor with full toasted malts, light caramel sweetness cut with an herbal hop bitterness in the finish. This was a good Oktoberfest.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 12, 2005
Thick, chewy, bready, malt forward aroma. Clear copper brown body with a low off white head that recedes to partial cover and ring. Malty sweet bready flavour with some lavender and floral flavoured hops and low finishing bitterness. Medium body with smooth texture and lively effervescence. Sampled on tap at the Pennsylvania location of the brewpub with beerbuzzmontreal, MartinT, Rastacouere and Yowie.

TomDecapolis (4425) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - OCT 22, 2005
Pours a translucent lighter amber with a small off white lacing head. Aroma is roasted malts with some floral hops and citrus. Different than other Oktoberfests I’ve had, but nice. Flavor is toasty malts up front with sweet citrus in the tail. Well done Oktoberfest.

dmac (3887) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Growler from the Princeton location shared at Moosetoberfest. Pours adeep reddish/brown with an average sized fizzy light beige head. Aroma of grains, bread, citrus and slight spice. Very bubbly and lively carbonation over a medium body and a very creamy finish. Flavor of brown crusty bread, grains, spice, and slight citrus. Not bad but far to creamy on the finish.

beerbill (3324) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2007
On tap at their New Hope brewpub. Pours crystal clear amber with a moderate off-white head that was gone after a few sips. Pleasant aroma of caramel and malt. Flavor was a bit light with caramel and malt both noted. A bit thin in the mouthfeel. This beer is a bit lighter than most marzens I have sampled thus far.

auerbrau (3146) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 18, 2008
On tap at the Philadelphia location. Pours a brilliant sienna-orange, with a tall finger of tan foam. Sweet grain sugar nose, fresh baguette crush and some pumpkin seed. Flavor is rather bland. Some generic Munich malt, a bit of toast, and some light hops. Really generic and blandish. Dry and crisp. Not the sweetness, malt character or expressiveness I’m looking for. Drinkable, but plain.

CanIHave4Beers (3134) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Pours a deep crimson color with a medium to small head. Aroma is rosty and grainy malt with some caramel and some noble hops. The flavor has some roasted nuts and some herbal bitterness, very dry and very tasty.

10.16.04 Tap @ Princeton. The standard glowing copper pour looks exceptional as a beam of sunlight streaks from the ceiling, illuminating the pull. Hardly any head. Bread crust nose with a lagerly spine. This beer was served quite cold and I found that refreshing, given the style. Nice spice to the hop character come in a bit earlier than usual, almost puckering the tongue in shock like a salty chip. Not a bad effort from this, my favorite bp. Surprisingly, this doesn’t have the usual Triumph signature flavor so recognizable in most of their beers.
