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.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2005
Clear medium amber, small white cover. Strikingly grainy nose, remotely bready and toasty as well, but the graininess does not have the usual freshness I associate with vienna malts and thus contrasts more than complement the rather hoppy nature, mostly focusing on bitterness than finishing aromas. Unusual..

dmac (5599) - 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.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - 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.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, 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.

tiggmtl (4544) - 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.

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.

beerbill (3605) - 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.
