Poured from a 16.9 ounce bottle into an nonic pint glass. Appearance: This one gushed out of the bottle as soon as it was cracked. Once I cleaned things up, it pours a honey gold with orange highlights and a 1-2 finger foamy off-white head. Minimal lacing. Smell: Sweet German malt with sweet grains and a touch of spices. Very sweet aroma. Taste: Sweet bready grains up front followed by lightly roasted malt in the middle before ending with a touch of earthy hops. The aftertaste is dry, earthy and just a little bitter. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a high amount of prickly carbonation. Drinkability: High drinkability. Goes down smooth and easy. I could knock back a few in the right situation. Overall: Very good beer overall. One of the better Octoberfest beers on the market. Give it a shot.

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.

500ml bottle from LCBO. 5.8% alc/vol Pours a clear deep golden colour with 1/2 finger of white head that reduces to a cap. Aromas of roasted matls, caramel, toffee, and a whiff of honey with some grainy notes. Taste matches the aroma. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. Very enjoyable.

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.

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!

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.
