Dacrza (1022) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2013
DATE TASTED: September 13, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Ayinger willibecker... OCCASION: first full week of school is done--and the power’s back in our house...APPEARANCE: upward cascading bubbles uphold a thick, foam-laden off-white head; orange amber body conveys an Oktoberfest with nice tracings... AROMA: beautiful caramel malts; some flowery hops add balance; grassy undertones add to its earthy aroma...PALATE: mellow, medium-bodied and pleasantly drinkable; balanced between tongue and tooth...TASTE: sweet, buttery caramel and sugary/salty enough to force of a lick of the lips; a winning sweetness that makes this style rewarding... OVERALL: clean, crisp and fulfilling--an Oktoberfest can do little more to impress; outstanding may be a stretch, but the sum of its parts suggests this appellation...

Draft at Hax in Chicago. A very good marzen with bread, sweet malt, booze, toast. The finish is slightly dry. Perfect chilly weather beer.

Malt forward. Notes of bread, coffee and grass. Not my favorite Oktoberfest but I enjoyed it Sorry, I had to upload these old ratings. They were for me, not for uploading. And also I need 75 characters, hence this sentence. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 bottle into a glass. Pours with a clear copper body topped by a good head. Fine aroma suggests something sweet and alcoholic. Smooth medium - full body. Toffee notes in the fine flavor. Overall: Quite satisfying.

Bottle from Merchants. Aroma is grain, floral, somewhat fruity, earthy hop, caramel, very good. Appearance is amber, clear, light tan head. Taste is caramel, grainy, earthy hop, floral, wheat, grassy, excellent. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, grainy earthy hop aftertaste. Overall, tastes like Autumn. A very good example of the style.

koleminer20 (3840) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 2, 2017
On draft at Dan's Downtown Tavern. The pour is a darker coppery orange with a thin off white head and a couple spots of lace it falls. The aroma is decent. There is a very heavy sweet malt and toffee to it. There is a light alcoholic caramel that creeps in, but it's decently balanced here. The flavor is much of the same. The caramel is a little more forward with a sweet maltiness and just a touch of metallic on this one toward the back. The mouth feel is lighter medium bodied with a soft carbonation and a lingeringly sweet metallic maltiness and a touch of caramel on the aftertaste that is pretty good. This is pretty good for the style. 6 4 6 4 14

monkeychugg55 (1105) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Dark reddish amber with a small white head. Nice aroma of toffee, caramel, toast, a bit of roast, with a hint of spicy noble hops and a mild yeast ester. The flavor has a nice balance of toast and caramel, with a hint of noble hops. A bold yet balanced octoberfest, that is somewhat more assertive than most German examples, Pretty good.
