Clear amber pour with a thick frothy off-white head. Strong semi-sweet aroma of caramel and toffee, with just a touch of hops. Flavor follows the aroma nicely, but a bit more watery than expected. Palate is medium, feels big but very smooth. Very easy drinking, but one-dimensional, although that’s somewhat expected from this style. Certainly one of the better Marzens I’ve had, but highly over-rated in my opinion.

Goodgrief (2017) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - SEP 3, 2007
Oct. 2005 - Beer poured golden brown with a decent head. Decent lacing. Decent flavor. Aroma was slightly less than decent (a little skunky smelling, to be honest). The mouthfeel on this was nice and smooth and the taste was similar...buttery. I was expecting more sweet malty goodness and more spiciness from the maker of Celebrator. Disappointing.

Pours a clear caramel colour with a dense white head that fades to a small cap. The aroma is sweet roasted malts, ripe fruit, caramel, light peat, honey and a hint of barnyard funk. The flavour is lightly sweet roasted malts and bready malts with yeasty and peppery overtones. The tingly, thin palate and long, mildly bitter and spicy finish make this one very drinkable. To me, this is what an Oktoberfest should be. It is subtle, refined and reminds me of flavours from the autumn harvest.

RedCloud (129) - Rhode Island, USA - AUG 31, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 Pours an orange copper with fluffy white head that seems to last a bit. Smells of honey oat, sweet hay, and maple leaf malts. Tastes of sweet honey oats, slight maple leaf, and almost an ethereal peat malt taste. Nicely complex and dapper. This is what Oktober Fest is supposed to taste like.

orange copper color with a medium sized head. strong malty orange aroma with light soy sauce note, and a good roasted quality. soft chalky body and light full bubbles. complex honey maple flavor and a light yeast flavor. the beer is a lot easier drinking than it looks and smells.

PLeasent enough, but would love to try it very fresh or on draught, ’cause I get the feeling that something is missing.

Wow...this is on a whole different level than all of the American Oktoberfests I’ve had. Pour was an inviting light brown with a nice 2 finger head (there’s the heady Oktoberfest I’ve been looking for). Aroma of sweet malt with some roastiness...some dampness and funk in there as well. Taste was nice and malty with a humid mix of caramel, honey and roast. Nice carbonation. This is the first German Oktoberfest I’ve had this year and if the others are half as good I’ll be impressed.

alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - AUG 13, 2007
Typical Marzen brew, a bit more sugary sweet than most with some roasted malts. Lots of caramel and honey tastes. A low hop profile with some light fruitiness added. Med-to low carbonation with some light yeast in the finish. I really must try these German Brews straight from the brewery some day... im guessing the long trip doesnt do them much good.

Peppery lips follow an apple malt. Really picturesque. More complex the more I drink. Bitter is pleasant. Just not a taste I would want often. EEhhh...

This beer pours a deep golden amber with a medium white head that dissipates quickly leaving no lacing on the sides. This is your typical oktoberfest. There beer smells like your typical lager beer but the flavor is definitely better than that. Although I’m not a big fan of lagers or the oktoberfest berrs this is not that bad of a beer. I’m not sure i’d go out of my way to buy it but I might buy another just the same. Cheers
