50cl bottle. Pours slightly hazy deep amber colour with a mid-sized most good lasting beige head. Aroma of toasted malt, mild dryish fruits, caramel. Taste of toasted malt, mild fruits, caramel, some floral hops. Metalchopz (3420) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2016
Slightly hazy amber colour with a golden hue. Warm cap, kind of creamy, decent lasting and some good lacing. Bread malt aromas with caramel notes and some sweet fruitiness (dates, mild raisins). Hints of nuttiness. The taste is not as sweet, but still has some fruits, light caramel and hops in the finish. The blend between the hops and malts is quite nice in the aftertaste, which saves the flavours (as a little too mild, but rich with time). Pretty good for the style.

500 ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours an amber colour with a generous head. Aroma is bread, malt. Taste is same, plus grass and some fruits. Pretty good. David_Deas (15) - - JAN 29, 2016
Hands down the best widely available Oktoberfest. It has a typical flavor profile of an Oktoberfest while being more drinkable, more flavorful, and smoother than the Paulaner or the Hacker. jimcman (4) - USA - JAN 18, 2016 does not count
I am going to pass on the mouth feel, aroma, starts with this ends with that nonsense with this one. This is the best marzen I have ever consumed. Spaten and Paulaner are still world class, but this is the best!

Bright amber pour with a massive puffy head. Malty, bready aroma. Bready up front, caramel sweetness, grassy, lighter fruit notes. Medium body. The standard-bearer for Marzen BlackHaddock (7416) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2016
500ml bottle ’Kirtabier’ from beers of Europe. Poured carefully into an old Wolnzacher Brauhaus tall, handled glass tankard at home on 10th Jan 2016. Slight haze to the dark, dull orange coloured body: on top a full and deep foam blanket. Light malty nose and flavour, semi-sweet with a mini bittering finish. Decent enough, it’s a long time since I had an Oktoberfest bier. I must try to find them more often when they are available/around. thorongil2 (3171) - , Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2015
(bottle) clear, bright amber colour with a small white head; aroma of stewed fruit, sweet cake; creamy palate; balanced flavour with a long, light bitter finish GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2015
Bottle from the LCBO. Copper-amber with a healthy white head. Aroma of bread crust, sugar cookie, cut grass and orange blossom. Beautifully balanced flavors of toasted cereal, toffee, candied orange & lemon peel, and a hint of rosemary. Floral hops in the dry finish. An excellent example of the style. chris__hartley (445) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2015
It pours copper with golden highlights; the head is off white and foamy. The aroma has notes of: toffee and bread. The taste is light bitter; there are notes of: toffee, orange zest, and pine. The palate is light bodied and has medium carbonation; it has a short finish. Overall, fairly light for the style.
