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

gyllenbock (7226) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Clear light amber with a small thick head. Aroma and taste of grain, malt, caramel and crispbread. The finosh was dry. Drinkable but nothing special.

Ernest (7202) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 5, 2009
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot), with a light note of dried mango. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. A fair rendition. A little rough and simple, but ok.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Pours a clear copper with a thin white head. Sweet caramel malt aroma with some earthy graininess. Body is thin, semi-sweet, musty and dry. Could use a touch more hops and some more defined maltiness.

blankboy (7110) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2006
Bottle. Pours a clear bubbly amber with an average size off-white head. Sweet aroma and flavour of grain, some fruit, malt and mild, slightly stale hops. Light bodied and bland. Tastes like a Lager and for a Victory beer it’s quite dissapointing. Just O.K.

Appearance :Clear amber ale with hint of vintage copper, medium large semi dense tanned top.3+.
Nose :Soft, refreshing aroma , flower hop with golden malt..
Flavour/Palate : Medium bodied , soft texture with oily malt and soapy hops. Low carbonation. Middle smooth almost oily with light bittering. Slightly disappointing finish, somewhat flat, beer that is missing element x.

PorterPounder (7050) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Tallahassee, Fl. - Liquor Loft, 12 oz bottle. Medium copper orangeish pour with little to no head. Aroma is faint, but what is there is earthy and sweet, kind of like fresh mushrooms. Flavor has some hints of caramel, a hint of ripening vegetables, and a bit of a roasty character underlying throughout. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Solid Oktoberfest.

swoopjones (7021) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 11, 2007
On tap @ Coles Buffalo NY. Watered down version of a marzen. Nice color weak aroma. Slight malty sweetness. easy drinking but serious lacking flavor.

solidfunk (7001) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Good for what it is. Would be easy to drink in a stein, but then again I’ve had better marzens. Tasted this at a Giant and didn’t opt for a growler.

radagast83 (6943) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Bottle. This is probably my most favorite Oktoberfest beer this season. It is not overpowering, and relatively balanced. The malts aren’t too overpowering, and the hop balance is just about right. Very nice subtle bitter finish.

TheAlum (6825) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2008
12 oz bottle from the singles rack at Binny’s (Orland Park, IL). Poured a dark hazed carmel color, small off white head. Malty nose with slight spice. Tate is similar, bready and biscuity w/ carmelized malt notes. Slight spice in the finish, light bodied, maybe even thin, but very sessionable. Cheers!
