Dogbrick (12247) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2011
This beer is a clear orange color with a medium thin eggshell white head that dissipates quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt and mild hops. Light and sweet character that is malty with notes of caramel and floral hops. The finish is toasted malt and caramel with a lingering sweetness left behind. Decent overall.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2015 12 oz brown bottle. Im not sure on the dare. It is either an old bottle or a fairly unfiltered lager as it pours a decent brownish orange with a bunch of floaties. The head is foamy and white. There is a decent amount of herbal hoppiness in the smell a keen candy/caramel smell, and some toastiness. The flavor has some oxidized fruit and caramel, it is basic, perhaps a bit on the sweet side. Not the best ofest, but I think it is an old bottle. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-06-2010 21:37:29 Re-review: this is jsut a bad okto, some almost autolyzed yeast character, marmitey and savory.

Golden yellow with a bit of brown tinge, fast disapearing white head. Beer cheese smell with some peat. Tasty peatish though thin mouthfeel, very high malted. All though not up to my other samples from this brewery, still refreshing. Thanks jpm30 for surprise extra.

Amber pour, creamy head. Aroma of toasted grain, some light pears, caramel and honey. Smooth and toasted grain up front, caramel, fruity esthers. Pretty nice stuff for the style.

adnielsen (10573) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2012
Bottle @ Brad’s house. Pours a dark orange appearance with a cream colored head. Caramel, toasty grainy, herbal, grassy aroma. Somewhat sweet but not cloying, caramel, toasty, straw, grassy, a touch fruity flavor that is well balanced and delicious. One of the better Märzens that I’ve had in a while.

BVery (9943) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - OCT 11, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle. Clear orange pour, small white head. Malty, some spice. Palate is a little thin and under carbonated. Just okay.

arminjewell (9423) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Pour out of bottle was slightly hazy orange with white head. Aroma had notes of toffee, some spice, caramel, biscuit, emphasizing the sweet notes in there with just a hint of grassy bitterness. Taste was a bit of the same, with lots of biscuity, bready malts with a touch of caramel, some bitter grass, finishing fairly sweet.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 28, 2005
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear, sparkly medium orange with a moderate layer of off-white head (receded almost completely after a minute). Aroma had smooth caramel maltage upfront with some floral/vegetal hoppage behind it. Flavor was very enjoyable... autumn-crisp caramel, noble hops, toasty grains, and just a hint of alcohol around the edges. Crisp, yet smooth on the palate, with a nice medium malt backbone. Fairly long finish with fresh caramel and light hop bitterness. One of the best Oktoberfests I’ve tried.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7178) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright caramel-amber color with a small creamy orange-white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet, tangy and malty though a bit vegetal. The flavor was sweet, tangy and malty with notes of molasses, caramel and faint vegetal malts. Medium finish. Moderately full bodied. Ok.
