   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 3/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 9/20
OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 18, 2013
A - Pours a clear golden straw. Big fluffy 2 finger head. Blots of lacing left behind. S - Husk and sweet grain. Earthy lager yeast. T - Spicy hops off the top. Earthy grains flowing heavy. Weird honey kissed malt. The malt slowly starts showing up more as it sets. I poured the beer at 47 degrees F. This is not a good representation of the style by any means. I think they got the Pilsner tanks mixed up with the Marzen tanks. It’s like a macro pilsner with artificial sweetener. Serving type: bottle 09-21-2010

Lost rating from last fall. Pours clear gold with a fluffy white head. Quite biscuity but otherwise somewhat bland.

Nice and sweet, put still crisp and smooth, easy drinker. Almost clear golden body, light wispy head, totally cereal, sweet malt throughout

damzz (305) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Pours a medium yellow with a thin lasting white head. The nose is sweet malt. Body is medium with an unctuous quality. Palate is upfront malt with the speciality malt adding to its flavor and a slight but lingering bitterness. Alcohol content is 5.9% not the 5% listed. 11.2 oz bottle.

Wasn’t was I was hoping for with an octoberfest. It was light on flavor, palette, and everything. Lager feel

odannyob (83) - Colorado, USA - DEC 3, 2014
poured from a 11.02 oz. dark brown glass bottle (nice and cold) into a dimpled mug. an unassuming aroma; a color depth between gold and tan; a most scrumptious taste; light palate and over it all, i like this. wish this marzen would be available year’round, round here, but it ain’t. so, when it is here, take advantage. cheaper, too, than them other marzens are, too.

onceblind (4965) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Clear rich gold with a fluffy white head. The aroma is pure golden toast and blonde grains with a very full Pilsner biscuitiness. Full palate with a big golden toast and biscuit flavor, Pilsner malts and German grass hops with low bitterness and lots of bread notes.

Barreras (1138) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Pours a light yellow color with a metallic corn aroma. Taste is clean and simple with a slight hay flavor. Mild bitter aftertaste.

firstsip (552) - Michigan, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Tap. Clear dark yellow. Good layer of lingering head. Corny nose. Tastes of bright yeastiness, mild corn, mild European hops. Very light for an oktoberfest, even for Germany.
