UPDATED: AUG 17, 2017 Clear amber with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, toast, honey, and herbs with a hint of spice. Light medium watery body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Nice malty flavor of caramel, toast, apple, and nuts with hints of herbs and spice. Very smooth and refreshing. Another solid offering from Capital, but pretty standard. Good.
Tasty stuff, smooth hearty malty sweet. Toasted bready grains. Solid no complaints randy1969 (112) - Marengo, Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2017
Rich aroma of caramel, toasted malt and spices. Golden, amber color, slightly hazy, persistent slightly off white cap head.
The flavor is sweet and smooth with the caramel and toasted malt with light bitterness. Light-bodied with some heft from the carbonation BeerInHeaven (493) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 9, 2017
pours a very pleasant copper amber with a medium white head. Rich caramel malt aroma. Awesome taste! Not overly sweet or syrupy. And it leaves rapidly but with a great perfectly bittersweet linger. My new favorite Oktoberfest! MNAle (234) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 8, 2017
Strong, spicy sweet bread aroma. Clear to slightly hazy amber, moderately carbonated, tall, thick, creamy off-white head. Smooth and creamy feel. Spice and bread in the initial taste, caramel that is slightly sweet. Moderately bitter in the middle and finish. Finish is a bit sticky. A very nicely done American Märzen. dekester1 (371) - Town of Maple Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 22, 2016
Poured and orangey/amber color with a decent head that faded to lacing. A slightly sweet aroma with hints of fruity hops and strong malt. Taste is very malty with a bready flavor and mild hop finish. Palate was good. Overall, one of the stronger marzens I have tasted.

This is my favorite American Oktoberfest beer. It has a rich caramel flavor and is very affordable.

Tap at Capital, Middleton, WI. Clear amber pour with weak foam. Nose is
celery, butterscotch, amaretto. Oily body, rich for style, mild diacetyl, small celery, a couple of faults.

From the bottle of the pour is slightly cloudy with a burnt orange color, the head is thick and cream colored, the aroma is yeasty and hops towards the back of the nose, the taste is caramel, lightly a marzen beer with a crisp ale note almost reminiscent of a granny smith apple, the finish is caramel and malts. zoucrew102 (2240) - - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle, thanks George999! Bready malt aroma with caramel and toffee notes. Pours amber colored with a thin white head with OK retention and lacing. Starts with bready malt flavors with caramel and toffee sweetness in the background. Finishes smooth with the caramel and toffee coming to the front with an almost sticky sweetness. Nice Oktoberfest. drjay44 (3891) - Salida, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2015
12 oz. bottle, shared with multiple others at brew club. Pouts a medium off white head, with slight lacing, over a clear amber (SRM 9) body.....nose is moderate toasted malts with light crust, mild hops.....taste is very slightly sweet with toasted malts, slight light hops......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, moderate carbonation. This is a clean malty lager with minimal hop bitterness. As such it falls into the style. Perhaps a bit more Munich or Vienna malt would add more character BJCP 8/3/14/4/7
