Heathen (1458) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - OCT 1, 2012
THOUGHTS: Sort of just a way more malty and hoppy version of their regular lager, but I guess that’s sort of like the original German oktoberfest beers. Märzens were never a favorite of mine, but last year I found several I really liked, but this is more like the first few that I ever tried that first put me off to the style. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, light to medium copper with a large, off-white head that mostly diminished and left fair lacing. The aroma had light to moderate caramel, nutty and toasted malts; and moderate grassy and metallic hops. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and slightly bitter; while the finish was moderately sweet and lightly bitter with a fairly short duration. There was caramel, malt, dark bread, a little raisin, toasted and nutty malts, grassy and metallic hops. But it was all sort of watered down. The light to medium body was watery with fizzy carbonation and a metallic finish.

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear orange pour with a thin tan head. Sweet malty aroma with some caramel. Sweet malty flavor with some caramel and dry bitter malts. Can’t get too excited about it.

thornecb (4291) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Pours deep gold into a shaker. Off-white soapy head recedes leaving gloppy lacing. Butterscotch and caramel aromas. Astringent with sweet caramel front to back. Mild fest finish.

Wow. What a Shitty Oktoberfest. This brewer should stick with one uping bud. Shit in a bottle

DCLawyer (1358) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Bottle->SA. Clear amber with small white head. Roasted malt, bread, earth, grains. Weak example of the style. Thin, but quaffable.

pineypower (2479) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Bottle much thanks to Dmac. Pours out an attractive amber color with an off white head. Aroma is of cereal, caramel malts, some light cereal and maybe a touch of some hop notes, but not many. Taste is sweet grainy cereal, light caramel, mild toffee, dry toast, and some mild bitterness, but not much. Eh, it’s ok.

Braudog (5576) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle. Dark amber-orange, standard "American head" .. drinks as you’d expect, rich with caramel malt, and a nice fall, woodsy outdoorsiness. Not a bad interpretation. (#5302, 10/27/2013)

Very average, yet enjoyable and drinkable Oktoberfest beer. Pretty thin and one note...that's my only real complaint. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FROTHINGSLOSH (4785) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a red-orange-tan color with a large foamy-soapy tan head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet, tangy, corny and malty with a hint of toffee and faint sour fruits. The flavor was tangy and sour with a bit of bread, honey, toffee and sour fruits. Medium length tangy, sour and fruity finish. Medium body. Uninspiring.
