elektrikjester (90) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 8, 2010
Pours a medium golden amber, with a large foamy head. The off-white head still persisted during the session. The aroma is upfront, with toasted malts and some slight hoppiness. Taste is also strong and largely relfects the aroma--a mild toasted malt flavor is front and center, with some bready, slightly grassy qualities. Hoppiness imparts a little bitterness but is definitely in the background. Mouthfeel is average. In all, a fine Oktoberfest beer if flavor is high on the list of priorities.

The best of the Octoberfest beers. I say this having had at least one hundred plus Octoberfest biers. This is the one! That wonderful marzen flavor! Prost! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330 ml single bottle from Molly’s Spirits for $3.37. Clear, light amber appearance with a fluffy beige head. Aroma of Munich malt, bread, toasted grain, mild hops and light caramel/toffee. Similar flavor, adding mild to moderate sweetness, light to mild bitterness and a lingering Munich malt finish. Medium body with ample carbonation. Clean, smooth and easy to drink. Probably not too fresh, but this is drinking nicely. Spot on.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear dark Amber body with just a very small short lived off-white head. The nose is sweet caramel and Munich malt with a little toasted malt and minimal to no hops. The flavor is a little bit on the thinner side, with a bit more toasty huskiness than I’d prefer. Pretty well lacking in hops as well. I suppose it’s ok, but it’s not especially smooth or satisfying. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a lingering husky finish. Meh. Lower tier Oktoberfest.
