luv2brew (196) - Chesterfield, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2007
Pours a deep copper with a massive white head that lasts a good time The nose is of fresh german malt with no hint of hop bitterness. This is very well rounded, but I was hoping for a little more sweetness. It almost has a little dryness to it. The carbonation is a little bit more than I was expecting, but they pretty much got this one right. This is extremely clean and refreshin with a very small bit of bitterness at the end.

500ml bottle. pours out a clear golden-auburn with white head. nose is really doughy with nuts. flavor is again really bready, nutty, and semi-sweet caramel. watery mouth feel and clean finish. carbonation is smooth. very bready, clean, tasty, and refreshing.

Pours gold/amber with a big white head that fades a bit but a half finger sticks around. Lots o bubbles. Aroma of bread and sweet malt. Taste is the same with a hint of spice. Makes me want to go to Germany during oktoberfest and give this a shot.

On tap at local restaurant. Nice golden color with a sweet malt aroma characteristic of a Marzen. Notes are minimal (don’t take paper/pencil to a restaurant...) but it had a very enjoyable and easy-to-drink flavor...some hops, but mostly malt. Would definitely pick one of these up again

Nihon (247) - Vernon, Connecticut, USA - SEP 9, 2007
Slightly ruby redish color, very good carbonation. Very malty, and lightly sweet aroma. Dry, mildly bready flavor, good mild bitterness. I agree with the herbal notes others have mentioned as well.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2007 (Teerenpeli, Helsinki). Very good amber looks, almost champagne like bubbles. Toasty and bready, malty and tasty. Some paper and cartboard, but not in a bad way. Dry and tasty, very good.

On tap 9/7/07, a little lighter in color than I like in an Oktoberfest, big fluffy white foam. Flavor is good and balanced from what I could get from it, way too carbonated. Damn shame about the carbonation, tonight was about perfect for enjoying a good Oktoberfest on the deck.

Rated while drinking: Pours golden copper with a nice fluffy off-white head. Not much lacing, but the head remains intact as it moves around. Lots of malts on the nose. Caramel almost sweet smelling, followed up by biscuits and warm bread. Near the end you can pick up herbal notes as well. Complex and sweet malts on the tongue. More bread-like character that I noticed in the aroma. Well-blended flavor, but complex on every other sip. Smooth and crisp on the palate. As some other people mentioned, its a tad bit watery, but doesn’t take away from the face value of the beer. Very drinkable. Pretty sure I’ve had this before with my brother. I’ll have to try some more German beers.
