Pours a translucent, light copper with a thin, white head that quickly fades. Aroma is strong of malts with a hint of nut. Light, creamy mouthfeel. Malty sweet, but not overly so. Good, balanced taste, and a fine domestic representative of the style.

A nice crisp malty well-balanced beer. One of the better big breweries attempts at the style.

7oz bottle Old Notes-Pours an amberish brown with a decent head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and hops. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew was better than I was expecting but I am not a fan of this style. kjb101791 (1) - - AUG 18, 2013 does not count
Got it at a pony keg. Oh man, I enjoyed it. It's not an IPA, so everyone here may not like it as much as I did.

Served from a 12 oz bottle thanks to Craig. The appearance is a deep orange-red with a little hazy clarity. The aromas are toasted German malts and that’s about it. The flavors are the same, fairly simple but pleasant. The mouth is lightly creamy. Overall a decent Marzen. dalepryor (305) - Paducah, Kentucky, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Aroma of sweet red apples, raisins and brown sugar. Pours a deep brownish red, one of the darker octoberfests I have seen and probably my least favorite 502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - SEP 22, 2010
bottle. Dark amber copper body with a decent white head. The aroma is nice and malty, as expected, but with a nice hop quality to boot. Both the flavor and the aroma are pleasantly balanced with a nuttiness that makes it all come together. wxman (1848) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2009
A good but average domestic Oktoberfest. Pours a bright amber with a minimal white head. Taste is sweet toasted malt with the slightest hops. Kind of thin, but decent and inoffensive. jimmack34 (647) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle. Pours coppery with a fairly dense head. Smells grainy and sweet corn malty. Some hops present as well. Tastes sweet with the different malts, cereal grains, maybe even nutty, and then some bittering from the decent amount of hops. Long sweet aftertaste. Pretty good.
