Lovely, hazy, orange-copper; light, bubbly, creamy head. Extremely aromatic, with lots of citrus, along with light caramel, toasty malts, and even some berries; the tinest hint of allspice. Flavor has a lot of orange in it; sweet but clean and not sugary; malty; some wheatiness in there, I think. Medium body; smooth; goes down easy; barely sticky. Excellent, particuarly for the style.

Bottle. Darker ambery color, compared to other Octoberfests sampled together. Rich malty and a touch fruity aroma. More caramel malty flavors, and a touch of bread or dough. Drinks smooth.

Very drinkable for a beer with such rich flavor. Not much on appearance: cloudy and with little head or lace. Nice fruity, floral aroma. Good balance of malt and hops; sweet but not too much so.

Very smooth beer here. Nothing huge and demanding. Just pleasure to the nose throat and eyes. A bit dry and tart on the finish, not lingering. Still satisfies after a few glasses. Not cloying.

My favorite Oktoberfest/Marzen. Everything works for this great German beer. Smooth with roasted chocolate and spice hints. Great finish leaves you wanting more.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2006 Very solid and enjoyable. Malty presence that screams "German beer". Mildly sweet and spicey.

Up front is a healthy serving of malts in the aroma. Thats a good start for a Marzen. Head is fluffy and structured with huge bubbles. Flavor is remarkably sweet and has almost a ginger bread background. Sign of lightly toasted malt and a very light dash of spice. The best Marzen iv’e ever tasted from a bottle.

Escellent beverage...Rich orange. Fluffly white head. Nose is not at all grainy. Sweet tomatoes. subtle copper penny but nothing unnattractive. Spicy bitterness. Flavors are nice as well. Promounced fruitiness with a tang and nothing round. Hops disseminate afterwards and are nobly bitter. Lovely.

Tap at the Laupheimer brewery. Fruity pear and apple aroma, light herbal as well. Hazy, amber color, beige head, good lace. Sweet, very light bitter, light herbal, fruity (pear, lychee), medium body, little sticky.
