This is the essence of Oktoberfest in a bottle. It poured a beautiful dark gold, with a wonderful malt nose. Smoooooooth, with a nice subtle yeast finish. Ok, its not Celebrator, but it stands on its own merits as perhaps the finest Fest brew i have tried yet.

Huge head, nice copper color. I thought I was in a bakery when I inhaled (a good thing). Definitely a sweet beer, but I had difficulty identifying the exact flavors. It seemed to leave a little residue in my mouth, but not of an unpleasant taste.

500 ml bottle given to me by a friend. Pours a beautifule orange/amber color with an off-white head. Flavor: Sweet malt, with hints of honey, orange, and a dry finish

Pretty good Octoberfest. Nothing special, but nothing offensive. Kind of on the light. Color was an orange-copper.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - SEP 12, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2004 Pours golden-bronze like autumnal leaves and with an aroma I can only liken to a blustery september day. The malts are nutty and rich. The head is pillowy soft and evokes a deep pining for those cool and comfortable naps under turning trees and a weakening season. The hops are spicy and tart enough to match the bitter and all orchastrate into a vibrant offering. The tempo and rythmn of a melodic brew designed and derived for remberence, reflection and relaxation. I will not resist.

Probably the best Oktoberfest in the world. Light enough to have a few and such a classic smooth taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber color. Sweet biscuit/cookie/bready malt aroma with a tinge of alcohol. Malty taste but the hops are more assertive than the aroma would lead one to believe. Medium body with soft Kolsch like mouthfeel. Slightly bitter at the end.

FishManLA (337) - Abita Springs, Louisiana, USA - MAY 19, 2008
A medium amber color with a rather persistent white head and nice lacing. On the sweet side for a marzen with a sweet fruity, floral, malty nose and a sweat fruity taste with notes of bread. Finish starts with a ping of bitter hops with a lingering sweetness afterward. The hops and malts are quite nicely balanced.

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2007
On tap 9/7/07, a little lighter in color than I like in an Oktoberfest, big fluffy white foam. Flavor is good and balanced from what I could get from it, way too carbonated. Damn shame about the carbonation, tonight was about perfect for enjoying a good Oktoberfest on the deck.

Just a great marzen. Slightly metallic aroma is the most off-putting thing about this beer. Easy body that goes down smooth, just slightly thick enough to keep me interested. Fantastic session beer. It should be noted that I love octoberfest beers.
