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

Pours a great copper orange with minimal head. Flavor is smooth up front, an even balance of subtle hops and full bodied malt. Body is smooth as well, making this thoroughly drinkable. Flavorable isn’t overly memorable, but it’s great while it lasts. I’m not a big oktoberfest/marzen fan, but this is nice.

I really enjoyed this beer, pours a nice red color with an off white head that sticks around. Smells sweet, hints of fruit and bread. Taste of malts and candied fruits prevail, balanced by some hops so it is not overbearing. Great beer to enjoy

ON tap at Hop Angel. This beer was very clear. Copper hue, aroma of caramel malt and slight hops. The taste is lightly malty, very easy to drink, smooth. A decent Marzan.

Pour is a slight amber without much head. Smell is like burnt old popcorn. Taste is burnt malt with a little citrus.

demdeac40 (299) - Etowah, North Carolina, USA - SEP 20, 2008
Pours a nice amber color with nice carbonation and a fluffy off white head that lingers. Nice floral and malt aromas. Nice bready, yeasty flavor followed by a nice nuttiness, almost roasted pine nuts. Nice finish.

Jsawyer (297) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Bottled. Beautiful orange body light head very nice lacing. True to form smells of a german lager, muted. Obvious munich malts and subtle german hop presence. Crisp and refreshing, but a little too carbonated for me. Still better than a budweiser.

bjt512 (292) - Athens, Georgia, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Exemplar of the style and a credit to the brewers. I poured a 12 oz bottle into a shaker. This caramel-colored beer gave off a lively bready aroma, and flavors followed suit, with dough, yeast, caramel, vanilla, and the merest whiff of grass. I’m not a fan of Oktoberfests, but this is definitely a good session beer and the perfect addition to an afternoon of football here in the American South.

Bottle. From the bottle so no pour. Aromas of caramel malts, bread, slight skunk, and a bit of pretzel? Flavor is super smooth. Caramel, bread, floral hops,and nice carbonation. Well done brew and really easy to drink.

waltersrj (280) - Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2010
Pours deep golden with amber tints and no head at all, just soapy white rings around the surface of the beer. Nose was pilsner malt, caramelled malt, slight hops, moderate apple juice, and cereal. The taste is mild apple juice, pilsner, cereal, and slight hops. Mouthfeel is refreshing. Decent marzen but not great, something is wrong with this beer but can’t pin it down.

Pours a copper/ amber color, with little head. The aroma is of malt, and lightly of hops. the flavor is malty, hops, and a caramel flavor too. This beer is not the best from victory in my opinion.
