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

TXBadger (1970) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2015
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 (366) - 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 (736) - 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 (273) - 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.

EvanFriend (424) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Malty, with the bread notes one would expect for the style. A little dried fruit as well. Not bad. Prost!

Bottle, pours a clear amber/copper body with off-white head. Lightly hopped aroma with bread and toasted malts. Taste is similar with some nuttiness and spices.

BeerRenter76 (303) - Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Originally rated on 9/14/14. Usual amber body with a slight haze, thick cap that leaves some spotty lace. The aroma is of sweet, syrupy bread crust, and roasted malt. Taste is of all of those elements, and there is even a touch of spice. Overall a decent marzen, slightly above average."
