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.

SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2004
Lots of good Munich malt character, a little on the sweet side, could use a little aging, and maybe be fermented out a little more

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.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Notes from Oct Copper pour with no head to speak of. Light toasty malt/caramel aromas, hops muted. Very light in body almost to a fault, but flavor brings the score up a bit. Rounded well with hop bitterness about midway through, finishes bitter with a wisp of citrus rind

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2006
New Hope. Clear golden-amber body with a frothy, off-white head. Sweet caramel nose with notes of grapes, toast, and buttery nuts. Medium sweet malty flavor with light fruity aspects, emerging Noble hop signatures, and low bitterness. Good, quaffable Oktoberfest.

beerbill (3367) - 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.

(11/10/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in Philadelphia. Clear amber color. Aroma of toasted malt and caramel. Sweet toasty flavor with some bread and caramel. A bit drier in the finish. Medium-bodied.

Draft at new hope. Clear amber pour with little head. Nice layers aroma with a faint banana note. Taste is crisp and standard. Not bad.

Draft. Pours golden amber with an off white head. Toasty aroma with lightly sweet malts. The flavor is clean and clear, with toast, bread, and toffee. Nice.

jason (1677) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2006
Draft in New Hope. Not a bad beer by any standards but I think most brewers try to copy somebody else’s Oktoberfests because this tastes like everyone elses Oktoberfest. Decent aroma and body but a little odd mouthfeel. Pretty smooth.
