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

bottle from whole foods. medium amber, very little head. aroma is very bready. medium/light bodied, flavor is smooth and caramel malt-y. finish is sweet, but i guess that’s the style. still, nothing that great.

zootfinster (203) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2007
A mildly malty, overly hoppy, highly carbonated, not very tasty beer. When I finish what I bought that’s the end of this beer. There certainly are worse brews but there a a whole lot better

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 13, 2007
amber color. Smell of malt, hops, graham crackers/ pie crust, minor caramel and pepper. Taste of roasted malt, caramel, pie crust, minor clove & cinnamon and light caramel. Has a vegetable/dirt aftertaste.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2007
12oz bottle. Aroma: Lightly toasted nuts and some german malts. A bit of caramel. Appearance: Dark amber in color and clear. Off-white head was full and frothy with good retention. Fair lacing. Flavor: German maltiness with some light toast and caramel. Dry finish. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: Nothing wrong with this beer, but plays it to safe to stand out.

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.

ScoWRee (374) - Perkiomen, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2008
Pours golden with a nice thick, off white, foamy head. Aroma is fruity, hints of yeast. Taste is yeasty, lots of carbonation. Not much going on here. Is this realy an ’’Octoberfest’’ brew?

roborb (66) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Poured into a regular pint glass this beer produced a amber hue with a short lasting 1 finger white head. The aroma smells like like malts and perhaps sugar/something sweet. The carbonation is light but the taste is not great. I felt like this beer really goes outside of the regular Marzen characterization. Unfortunately this is not a repeat for me.

Tanker12 (173) - USA - OCT 9, 2009
A few malts on the aroma but not much. Flavor is thin with a few malts and some Carmel. this beer is not much to write home about. Amazed they can get away with charging so much for it.

BREWMUSKCLES (2192) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2010
a little sweet and thin in the palate. some kind of a nut flavor with again not much of a palate. semmed one dimeinsional and not too much of a dimension at that.
