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

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2005
Pours clear amber body with medium bubbly off white head. Sweet malt aroma. Light bitter malt, metallic flavor and smooth, thin, watery palate. Not real impressive.

Pretty standard marzen. Not bad by any means. Malty, sweet, delicious. Not sure if I'd buy this over a Paulaner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mpersinger (360) - , California, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Sweet aroma with distinct cola nose accenting cereal malt base flavors and robust German hop flavor charge. Bitter enough to counterbalance slight sweetness, though still very clean flavor. I also get touches of cherry and smoke (not muddled as from yeast, but flavor notes from specialty grain I’d guess). It is large and festive, pushing the style. Hard to rate appearance, since I drank from bottle during World Series Game 1.

goz (358) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Slightly red-tinged amber, big white head that diminishes fairly quickly, and leaves very little lacing. Aroma is very light, some maltiness but not much else. Flavor is also fairly light, some caramel and other malt sweetness, and maybe a minimal hop hit at the end. Body is medium at best, mild carbonation, drinks easily, but is noting spectacular.

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - JUN 27, 2004
(sample @ brewery) orange amber color, very clear, with a long-lasting if small head. nose is primarily sweet and malty, with a mild toast underneath. flavor is malty and sweet, and rather heavy. beer is definately balanced toward the malt, and though not that heavy a body, still somewhat cloying.

Aroma caramel, bread, cereal, dough, Appearance amber, clear, tan foam, Taste medium sweetness, Palate light body, Overall almost a coffee taste to this beer. It is definitely different from the rest of the oktoberfest beers so just for that reason I would suggest this beer to a friend

Tap @ Victory. Clear amber/copper w small off white head that fell quick, no lace. Nose was light. Flavor was nice lt/med roasted amber malt w min hops. Just slightly into med bodied category. OK but not my style. Rather mundane. Are you sure this would fly in Germany?

aroma is grassy with honey and caramel apparent as well,very mild pumpkin like spice ...appearance is pleasant enough clear orange red brown color white head that does not last except for a thin white ring..taste is roasty-ish malts honey and grassy hops with a distinct wheat flavor as well..palate is smooth on the bottom tingly and bitter up top... an interesting and flavorful oktoberfest beer I think one of the better ones too neither the malty or bitter flavors are subdued
