COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Best by January 13 2014, printed very small near the neck - almost wipes off. Pours out a rich amber color with tan head. Smells like sweet bready malts, sour dough, herbal and earthy hops. Taste is bready almost doughy, some caramel, with a clean noble hop finish. Also getting some raisins. Mouthfeel is rich and full but not too heavy; sessionable. Overall this is one of the better Oktoberfest beers I've had from anywhere. Honestly Id rather drink a fresh unpasteurized American version than take a gamble on an imported one. Not my favorite beer style but worth a visit in September during "Oktoberfest". ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. A marzen beer that is only average. I love this style but this is not one of the better examples of this.

A nice classic Oktoberfest . Great malt character. Very drinkable beer. Perfect to bring in the fall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Malty bread like aroma. Deep amber color with a white head. Average head retention. Biscuit and very toasty flavor. Clean lager profile. Contains a higher percentage of Munich/Vienna malt than a typical German marzen. Overall, it would be a more drinkable beer if it had a higher percentage of pils malt like a traditional German marzen style Oktoberfest. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber pour with a thin white head. Aroma is caramel malt, little spice. Taste is wow! Flavorful caramel malt with a spicy note. Lasting aftertaste flavor.

Reddish amber with little to no head. Aroma of german hop funk and brown sugar. Deliciously smooth with hints of chocolate malt, cinnamon, a touch of hops, and a lightly dry finish. Nice marzen.

Bottle poured reddish to orange with off white head. Nice clean malty aroma a little br wary. Some sweet notes. The flavor is crisp and clean with nice malt backbone. First sip made me think of bratwurst .

Easy to drink and good for the style. I love Oktoberfest-style beers, but this isn’t quite as good as the real thing.
