Sweet malt forward. Appearance is golden apricot. Clear smal head, large bubbles. Taste is malt forward with a hint of aroma hops finished with a trace of bitterness. Bit of honey. Palate is crisp and refreshing. Overall one of the best beers I have ever had. Close to perfection.

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.

Wow it pours a dense rocky head of fluffy white goodness. Aroma is lager-like with a toasty and malty note. Tastes of well-attenuated but malty and rich melanoidins. Bread crust, toast, and a mature tobacco flavoring predominate. Not as sweet or as underattenuated as some other oktoberfests....especially marzens. Medium full body without the heavy brick feeling. Very good.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2007 Had this fresh at the tap room in Munich and I have had oxidized bottles. I will rate the tap room verison outstanding. Page 33 of MJ’s GBG only 199 of his Classic 500 Brews to go.

Hard to describe color, orange honey colored maybe? Pleasent melding of hop and malt with neither really overpowering the other. Sweet, earthy, dry taste with a clean crisp finish. A very good Marzen!

From bottle to dimpled much. Pour is a deep hold, amber tint with a quickly dissipating tan head. Nose is what you would expect out of a marzen, nice and bready, roasted malt, slight caramel. Light-medium body, bitter but also sweet. Thicker feel, great carbonation. Should be the standard for the style.

Golden with pillowy white head and Munich malt aroma. Malt forward with toasty nose and balancing hops. Clean lager finish. Almost creamy mouthfeel smooths then dries.

A very malty Oktoberfest beer and very flavorful. Not much in terms of hoppiness in this brew, since the nutty caramel character of this brew overshadows everything else here. I like this brew, but make sure you’re a malt fan if you try it.
