Seductively smooth, this medium-bodied amber beauty is akin to the great Oktoberfest beers of Munich. All German hops make this lager true to style. Patient cold aging makes it wonderfully smooth. In bottles September through February

bubbleflubber (2058) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Pours a clear copper-amber into the glass, with a light head that dissipates to trace wispy lacing. The nose is very multi with a touch of subtle grains. Flavors are of caramel, toffee, a burnt candy note, light bitters and a burnt toffee finish. The medium body and semi–zesty mouthfeel make for a decent Oktoberfest. On the lighter side of a harvest Vienna, it does enjoy decent quaffability, and provides a nice tribute to the pure German fest style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gripweed57 (1052) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 4, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Deep copper color with a small creamy beige head. Toasted malt nose with notes of caramel, cooked beets and toast. Flavor is more of the same with a hint of toasted nuts and brown sugar. Slightly metallic notes in midtaste. Cloying mouthfeel with a smooth spicy hop finish. Quite tasty and a worthy example of an American style Marzenbier.

Pours a clear coppery color with off-white head. Caramel, toffee, light roasted malt, and some sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with more malty goodness.

joejames (374) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear dark amber. Quick one finger head, no real lacing with little retention. Aroma caramel and burnt sugar. Taste is mainly malty sweet, with just a touch of bitterness. Medium bodied, light carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes dry. Tasting notes of caramel, biscuit, tree nuts, grass and herbs. Not a bad fest beer.

TizzleJizzle (741) - Garland, Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Poured a clear copper color with a razor thin head that dissipated almost immediately. Taste of roasted malts, biscuit and caramel. Lively carbonation, medium body. Not too shabby. Happy Oktoberfest

Shot (293) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Pours a luminous red with a thin fizzy head that dissipates to a thin, clumpy lace. Aromas of caramel and spice. Flavors are caramel, brown sugar, roasted malts, spice and biscuit. Slight herbal tones. Dry finish. Thin, highly carbonated mouthfeel. Not very memorable.

A nice looking festbier but extremely light on taste. Very smooth but very little flavor. Tap.

Malty, with the bread notes one would expect for the style. A little dried fruit as well. Not bad. Prost!
