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.

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.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Draft. Pours a dark golden hazy body with a thin off white head. Yeast y body with some spicy notes, floral tones, tea like bitterness and a bread y dough y finish. Good stuff especially for the style.

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.

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.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, 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.

A pretty good to-style Marzen with nutty malt notes and a hint of toffee maybe. Good and drinkable.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 28, 2006
Draft at Princeton. Pours copper with an off white head, spotty lacing. Caramel and bread like aroma. Flavor of caramel, toasted malt, and a hint of fruit. The hops do a nice job of balancing this beer, and does not have the overdone spicy hop finish other Octoberfest have. Sort of reminds me of Paulaner.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2006
Amber color with heavy foam. Aroma is typical Marzen with plenty of maltiness. Taste is pretty good for an Oktoberfest, but not exceptional.

A spicy malt and pumpkin taste. Good reddish brown color. Smell and taste were a bit tangy and metallic. Reminded me of blue moon pumpkin.

I had it on tap. It pours amber with a small, off-white head and lacing. The aroma is bread and caramel. The taste is caramel, nut, bread, and hay. There’s a nutty aftertaste to it. It was really smooth and drinkable. This is a good one.
