What can I say, the bottle cap gives away the "special" nature of this Oktoberfest. Massive, foamy head settles down to about 3/4". Penny copper color and some sparkling carbonation. Aromas are caramel malt, wheat bread, and honeyed toast. I’ve gotta say the taste of this beer lives up to it’s aromas, except for some lilac aroma from the hops -- which are very muted here. Palate is silky smooth with a sweet honeyed finish. The beer is a bit cloying, but it works as an excellent representation of the style.

10.29.05 500ml bottle. Dark amber-copper pour with small, fading off-white head of tight bubbles. Aroma is fruity, raisins, big-time malts, a touch salty. Sweet toasted bread and lightly floral. Wonderful medium-full body. Finishes just dry enough to leave you wanting another sip. No wonder this stuff is always sold out when I think I’ve found it on tap, it’s delicious.

ABUSEDGOAT (2693) - California, USA - OCT 25, 2005
Thin amber body with a large and beautiful head. Aroma is all malt. Caramel, bread and some toasted goodness there. Flavor is the same, and is light and smooth.

I remember this amber ale having a sort-of off, funky aroma but interesting in an Oktober. Very easy and malty, with a touch of sweetness. Worth picking up again.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2005
On tap at Firkin’s, Libertyville, IL and bottle from Armanetti’s, Mundelein, IL. Tried both versions - both equally great. Clear orangey amber hued beer with average, white head and good lacing. Light caramel with fruity ester aroma. Soft carbonation. Light-to-medium bodied that starts with smooth creamy, slightly sweet malt flavor and finishes on dry-side with slight hop flavor. Well-balanced. A truly great Oktoberfest/Marzen, one of my favorites.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - OCT 23, 2005
(500 ml bottle, neat bottle cap!) Pours a medium cloudy amber-orange, nice biscuit head, good lacing. Rich malty aroma, also swear I can smell the inside of a pumpkin! Flavor is oh so rich and malty with nice halo of smokiness. Excellent Marzen.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2008 (Draft @ GM, HOU): Pours an amber body, orange. Whitish head, small, diminishing. Malty sweet aroma, fruity. Not very strong. Fruity, flowery, malty. Some light fruity, malty taste.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 18, 2005
pours a nice even white head over a hazy golden orange-yellow bier. This bier should not be hazy! Huge malt aroma. Biscuits and honey...and more honey. Sweet but nicely balanced by the noble hops. Malt squared. Long lingering sweetness. A delicious marzen.

Holdwine (1214) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 17, 2005
This almost brought me back to Munich. Wet straw notes, along with a strong floral presence. A pleasure to drink. Slight carbonation and a wonderful roasted maltiness. Clean finish. I think I could drink a liter of this...
