Bottle. Pours brown with red hues and tan head. Aroma has a nice dark roasted maltiness with notes of nut and very doughy/bready. Flavor is much the same with a nice sweet and subtle spicy profile With a touch of dark fruit. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Overall, not the usual Marzen but I enjoyed.

Pony keg purchased by my friend Skinny Heitz for Oregon’s dismantling of the USC Trojans. Dark brown pour with a medium sized tan head. Aroma of apples, molasses, caramel. Flavor of caramel malt, pepper and molasses. Very weak mouthfeel. Mediocre beer but everything tasted pretty great on that epic night. reebtogi (6403) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 4, 2012
Pint on tap at the brewery pours a deep amber color with a small white head that leaves very little lacing behind. Aroma is mild with caramel and grass. Taste is a chocolate and caramel malty sweetness with some mild grassy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with light carbonation. A decent brew for the style but there are certainly better ones out there. jake65 (4033) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle: Amber pour with a thin beige head. Not much to the aroma; a little sweet and malty. Florals show up a little bit in the taste, but caramel malt and an herbal note are the forefront. A little bready too. Overall refreshing and paried well with the general’s chicken.

On tap, Old Chicago, Bozeman MT. Pour is dark copper, cream colored head. Aroma is spicy, malty. Taste is a light bitter, surprisingly light body. Very smooth. Kind of disappointing, I was expecting a bit more complexity. vadie (1257) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2014
Couleur ambré avec un petit col beige. L’arôme du malt et cereals. Le goût est du malt, cereals et levure. C’est un très peu sucré. Sarlacc83 (2438) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle from New Seasons.
A: Clouded brown, creme colored head which turns from foam to whisp. Some lacing.
N: Cocoa, biscuit, peas, bread, hay, touch of toffee, a bit vegetal, walnuts, and a hint of smoke.
T: A strange combination of sweet and bitter. It doesn’t seem like that’s the case, though. More of that almond profile.
M: Chalky, medium bodied, dense carbonation.
O: Not a great Oktoberfest. Perhaps it’s the yeast being used here, but it’s neither clean nor pleasingly bready. mcberko (19871) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2015
12 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark amber brown with a small white head. Aroma brings out toasted malt and some herbal notes. Flavour is pretty herbal, with toasted nuts, herbal notes, and biscuity notes. Pretty well-balanced - very lagery, full of corn and bready notes. Decent.

Brick red with a tan head. Aroma is very malty with ripe fruit. Sweet, toasted bread, caramel, medium dark fruits. It’s decent.
