Copper color, almost amber. Smells sweet, not much head. Tastes sweet and some bisciut in there.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
For all its rep, this didn’t impress me as much as other German Oktobers. Not sure why. Didn’t feel as rich, perhaps. It’s fairly sweet and nicely hopped, but the boddy seems light to me.

poured from a 500mL into a stein. Pours a solid orange color with a decent head
very good and classic oktoberfest aromas of malts, grains, and a bit of spice along with blood oranges
medium bodied with a good feel, but one that is lacking a bit on the mid-palate. Very malt based with some blood oranges
I’m a real fan of this oktoberfest. One of my favorite oktoberfest beers. Well balanced and brings everything that an oktoberfest beer should

This pours a beautiful amber color with a big creamy head. Nice carbonation. The nose is malty and floral. Nice mouthfeel where you can taste the malt but a great balance is maintained throughout. I look forward to this beer every year.

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!

Very good representation of the style. Chewy; would be much better on tap, as the syrupiness overpowers by the last sip of the bottle. Rating is based primarily on taste rather than drinkability.
