COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full rich bodied, hoppy, seasonal lager. Especially brewed for the Festbier season. This beer truly represents the Bavarian way of celebrating. Deep gold color, great mouthfeel and lots of flavor. Prost!

Oh my! Drinking this Marzen in my new beer stein! Has a nice golden color Has a nice foamy white head. Smells a bit spicy with the aromas coming out of my beer stein! Taste is a bit spicy with a creamy texture to it. Good recommendation from my boy scotty for my first beer out of the beer stein.

J_man (924) - Tustin, California, USA - OCT 6, 2013
Crystal clear pale yellow with a foamy white head propelled by fairly vigorous fine bubbled carbonation. Fairly standard but good German lager aroma. Light creamy texture with a biscuit malt flavor and a bit of corn in the back with some light sweetness. Good earthy hop balance and the light bitterness hangs around. Light, easy drinking and maybe a bit thin, but a very good Oktoberfest lager overall.

afireinside96 (923) - Mountville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2008
12oz bottle served in a lager glass. Pours pale gold topped by a small tight white head. Smells mainly of spicy noble hops. Light dough flavor eclipsed by noble hops. Spicy and soapy tasting. A bit sweet on the finish. Decent but certainly not an Oktoberfest.

Taboada (920) - Compostela (Galiza), - SEP 12, 2014
Tasted from the tap the 12/09/2014. Golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of malts, cereals, grain and herbal. Taste has some honey but with the predominance of grain. Easy to drink and almost no aftertaste. Average carbonation and light to medium body. Next one please!

Sdaniel90 (915) - Mexico City, MEXICO - FEB 15, 2013
Bottle, 500ml. Pours a clear, fizzy, macro-style yellow colour. Aroma is of very grainy, in the German way, some citric and spice touches. Taste is very drinkable, though not much substance. Typical Festbier to drink and drink away!

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 12, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear gold with a large fluffy white head that lasts well and leaves a bit of lace. Sweet, grainy aroma has notes of malt, caramel and citrus. Flavour is less sweet but otherwise identical to the aroma. Light body, thin mouthfeel and a short, slightly sweet finish. Easy to drink but nothing particularly memorable either. Not really up to the standard of most of this brewery’s beers.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Very pale yellow pour with a tall, short lived, loose white head. The aroma is grassy with slight light citrus, a little biscuit malt, and some noble hop spice. Liglty sweet and bready malt backbone with some lemon zest and a mildly spicy and peppery noble hop finish. Light body with moderate carbonation. I suppose I might not be fully versed in proper German styles, but this does not seem like an Oktoberfest at all. It’s a nice, light drinking beer, more like a Kolsh to me, but doesn’t have the hearty malty flavor that I look forward to drinking in Fall.

golden colour with firm white head. Taste of hops, little bitternes, drinkable, but not superlative.

Darwenus (884) - Virginia, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Yadda yadda yadda. Pale yellow, average head, faint fruity and yeasty esters, a tiny bit of hop tingle on the finish. Also, it annoys me that these German beers are bottled in the metric system and translate to 11.2 ounces instead of the 12 ounces I am used to as a by-God ’Merican. If I’m gonna drink a beer I don’t really enjoy, I want there to be a lot of it.
