UPDATED: AUG 30, 2014 Wow this was great! The aroma reminds me of a sweet bread baking. It has a beautiful Amber color. It starts off with a sweet toffee/caramel candy taste. The you get that hearty bread with lots of malt. Finishes with a rich, creamy taste. It has a very nice mouthful for a marzen. Really good! sitzds (318) - - OCT 26, 2013
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. Enwiebe (318) - - SEP 21, 2016
9/19/16. 500ml bottle. Pours a beautiful dark bronze. W a min head and lacing. Light malty nose. Surprisingly nice bite and backbone. Nice for a marzan.

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. antzman (316) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - AUG 30, 2006
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.

Pours amber with little head. Smell is slightly yeasty, some sweet notes are present. Taste is quite pleasant. One of more enjoyable beers in my opinion. Light, almost no body, with a sweet afterntaste that is not long lasting. A very good kirtabier! misterbeer (313) - greenwood, Indiana, USA - OCT 14, 2010
