Pours a deep amber red with small off white head which leaves quickly. Aroma is subtle but all malt. Flavor is sweet bread, caramel malt finish with a nice bitterness. Nice oktoberfest MrBeerFanatic (1059) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 20, 2009
Pours medium to dark bodied amber with light carbonation and an off white head. Aromas of sweet caramel, touch of candy, and other malts. The flavors are mostly malts of the nose with a slight hop backbone with a light carbonated feel. Somewhat rich, semi sweet, little dry and bitter. A pretty decent Marzen...

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2009 Ah GLBC, what can I say about quality of the beer that the beer itself can’t describe. I really have an affection for the Cleveland brewery and this Oktoberfest is as good of version of the style that you will find. A good, malty golden brown body gives the beer a slight caramel and hops flavor that can be downed in massive quantities. JoeMurphy (41) - Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Pretty amber beer; malty with a nice balance of bittering hops. Very drinkable. SrSilliGose (3331) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 13, 2009

Aroma of malt bread and candy. flavor is also bread and malt with a hit of alcohol and a slightly watery finish. Great oktoberfest. Haslinger (929) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - SEP 11, 2009
On tap at the Blue Tusk. Not too much aroma present but the complex taste more than makes up for this. Some malt, hops and a bit of deep earthy taste. Perfect fall beer! 502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - SEP 10, 2009
Bottle into pint glass. Nice amber color with receding offwhite head. Not much lace. Nice color though. Bready, nutty, vanilla, earthy, and a bit hoppy on the nose and flavor. Very pleasant and such a perfect style (and example) for fall). Medium body with medium low carb. Overall: simple style, but very sessionable and pleasant.

Pours a very clear light orange color with a small tight head. The aroma has a nice hop zing with a light roasty nuttiness. The flavor has a nice malt sweetness and is particularly light but a mild hop zing and roastiness make this a tasty beer. pete4999 (1445) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Bottle. Pours an amber brown, whitish-khaki head. Reddish when held to the light. Smells nice and sweet, like caramel. Little malty, nice but subtle smell. Simple, smooth mouthfeel, with a little creaminess to it, very nice. Taste is caramel, some dark fruits, even some honey. Some hops towards the beginning, but not really at the end. Pretty good overall.
