COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our twist on the German Märzen bier, we give you a Paso Märzen. Traditional imported malts offer subtle honey-like aromas with hints of Noble hop spice. The stars of this brew are the imported Pilsner and Vienna malts that offer malty sweetness that carry through to the end. German Hallertau hops add rich Noble hop character to balance this exceptional Marzen. This beer is 100% stainless steel and gets the name Oaktoberfest as an ode to our hometown, Paso Robles, Spanish for "Pass of The Oaks". True to Oktoberfest custom, this beer makes its debut in time for fall to celebrate the age-old German tradition.

On tap at Yard House. Clear golden with white head. Aroma is caramel and bread. Taste is sweet, followed by mild bitterness. Body is light, good carbo. Don’t care for the style.

Aroma is fruit, oak/slightly smoky and malts. The flavor is fruit/berries, mild oak/smoky, slight acidity, a bit of sweetness, malts and a dryish/tart finish.

473ml can. Pours a slightly hazy amber-orange with a medium, creamy, long lasting, off-white head that laces nicely. Light aroma of bready malt, grain, caramel and orange. Sweet flavour of bready malt, caramel, grain, orange and a hint of honey with a crisp, dry, bitter grass finish. Light body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Not bad, easy drinking.

Orange-gold with white head. Aroma has cereal and mild floral overtones. Lightly malty flavors. Seems a bit over carbonated for the style and lacks body. Drinkable but not a good representation of an Oktoberfest/Marzen.

Reid (2497) - Salem, Oregon, USA - FEB 23, 2017
4x 16 oz can pack from Roths Sunnyslope Market..very dubious about this..way out of date..this is not what i expect from Roths..but as they were $6.99 giving it a chance. Pours a golden clear colour with a largish rocky /frothy off white head. Nice honey malty aromas.. toasted cereal and honey.nice. Smooth honey sweet and with the slightest touch of grassy hop. Good for gulping. Mouth feel allows great drinkability..which is what an Oktoberfest is all about surely? Overall a super Oktoberfest..very light , very tasty and very gulpable.

Jabic (529) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Ar: Toasted malt, grass, and hay; herbal and rich malt, but with a lighter edge. Ap: Bright orange-amber, crystal-clear and brilliant; medium off-white head with good retention, leaves a ring of assorted-size bubbles and a thin cap of blotchy foam. T: Toasty malt with a very, very light sweetness; hay and a light sulfur note; cracker malt and herbal hops on the finish, with a low bitterness; very clean ester profile, with just a hint of sulfur and butter. P: Medium body with high carbonation; finish is medium-dry. O: Tasty oktoberfest-style beer; good depth of malt flavor and restrained hopping; fermentation profile is quite clean, and the beer has a very pretty look; quite quaffable, with none of the overly sweet and pronounced caramel flavors that many American-style oktoberfest beers suffer from.

BillWyce (1068) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2017
Pours clear amber color with a tight, 2-finger white head. Biscuit malt aroma with some caramel. Vanilla oak note as it warms. Medium body with a brief finish. Wood notes mix with biscuit malt. A touch of hops bitterness underneath lightens it a touch. Maybe a note of caramel too.

Can. Pours amber with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, dough, and grass. Flavor of toasted malts, caramel, dark bread, grass, grains and had a bit of honey.

Banksiz (129) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Faintly malty nose with very slight bubblegum banana notes. Pours a medium amber. Pleasantly balanced maltiness and bitterness, with a delicate noble hop flavor and no objectionable harshness. Medium-slick honey-like mouth feel. Very drinkable brew, but nothing really grabs me about this one.

Can at home with Caressa and Apollo. Picked this up because I was craving some oak barrel, and an oaky oktoberfest sounded perfect and intriguing, then I read the description on this page. Kind of deceiving. Anyways this can poured crystal clear light brownish amber with a huge foamy head. Faint malt on the nose with a whiff of maple syrup. It’s a light bodied marzen, lacking the expected malty, bready sweetness. Lighter bodied. Lightly hopped, a bit of crispness on the finish. This is unsatisfying as a marzen. Light on everything including flavor. Pass. Not what I would expect from FW.
