500 ml bottle into stein. Clear copper with thick head but no lacing in my ceramic stein. Aromas are heavily buttered biscuit, floral hops, and caramel. Flavors follow with early malt sweetness and late mild bitterness. Light to medium bodied, dry finish, moderate carbonation. My favorite Oktoberfest marzen.

Aroma is nice, with smells of malt and damp earth. The appearance is clear dark amber, not as orange as most Oktoberfests, with a small head that dissolves rapidly. The flavor is balanced away from the malty sweetness that many of the style display, but is still very nice. It is a crisper, dryer flavor, with some hops, but still shows a nice malt. It’s almost like a cross between a German-style Pilsener and a normal Oktoberfest. The palate is average, with the carbonation being a bit harsh at the outset, but it settles down in a few minutes. Overall it’s a nice beer, but I don’t like it as well as most of the Oktoberfests out of Munich. I prefer the thicker, maltier style of those brews to this crisper version, but this would probably be favored by most ale lovers.

Bottle Pours a caramel tan with a off-white head. The aroma is of bready malts with a hint of sweetness. The flavor is very clean. The malts of course come through strongly, but are not overbearing. Just a hint of spiciness, but not much. A very mellow Oktoberfest.

I must have tried a different beer than everyone here. Mine tasted just like a standard pale lager.

Huge, very sparkly/bubbly head... pours a clear dark yellow color. Very malty and floral aroma. Very smooth beer, dry, malty taste. A little bit of citrus. Not my favorite Oktoberfest/Marzen... but a good one nonetheless. 1 pt .9 oz. bottle.

Smooth. Malty. Good flavors. A little heavy on my stomach. Slight floral hop flavor and aroma. I’d drink this again.
