Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a glass. Clear light Amber with small white head. Aroma is caramel malt, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is caramel malt. canary dog (784) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - DEC 24, 2015
Restrained, but well-balanced. Certainly not sweet, as this style can sometimes become. Not particularly exciting, but nothing offensive. Just your typical Oktoberfest. rondphoto (4508) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - DEC 15, 2015
bottle @ Chief Market / Lima OH --- Clear amber brown color, full beige head, lace sheets. Aroma of malt and burnt sugar. Taste is toffee and malt that grow sweeter and fuller as they move smoothly to a lightly carbonated swallow. Hops are only slightly apparent in the finish, but it’s enough to balance this beer very nicely. A good Marzen style brew. Tmoney99 (15119) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2015
Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good brew. phaleslu (10895) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 15, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear copper color without much depth and a small off-white head that settles into an uneven ring and wispy film while leaving a few spots of lace in the glass. Notes of toasted sugar, biscuit, light toffee, grass, mild spice, apple - I don’t really get the apricot notes they mention on the label. More fruit in the back of the flavor, with bigger malts and more earth and malt in the aroma. Light-medium bodied, with modest carbonation and an earthy, fruity, malty mouthfeel. Decent Oktoberfest.

Amber with frothy foam. Malty, lightly sweet with a bit of fruit and just a hint of bitterness. ajnepple (7342) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - NOV 6, 2015
On tap at BJ’s in Fort Collins. Clear orange appearance with a frothy beige head. Smooth, malty and a pretty clean rendition with mild noble hop spice. hotstuff (5279) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2015
Rated on 10-06-2015 (Kroger Marketplace-Fort Wayne, IN) This bottled beer pours a very small beige head that has a short retention, amber transparent body, fast rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is malt, toffee, citrus hops, fruity, earthy, and light spice. The flavor is semi-sweet, lightly bitter, citrus hops, fruity, spice, and malt. The mouthfeel of this beer is light carbonation and this is a light bodied beer. A quaffable beer that lacks in character. wombat23 (2137) - Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Shared 12 oz. bottle. Amber in color, really large off-white head. Aroma has malt, a hint of caramel. Taste is similar with a small bit of bitterness. darbeer75 (1112) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Aroma: some apricot, roasty; Appearance: dark amber with frothy head that quickly diminishes, little lacing; Taste: sweet, with slight bitterness, some apricot; Palate: medium body with average carbonation, finish is long with some lingering apple juice maltiness; Overall: drinkable but not my favorite style, would probably not buy again.
