Toffee/caramel/malt, and not much else...which is a good thing IMHO for a Marzen. Orange color with thick, fluffy head from a bottle.

Pours clear copper with a big white head. Aroma is nice and malty/brown bread with a sweet similar taste.

An original is always worth drinking in order to know the history of the beer world. Toasted barely notes mixed with thick caramelized sugars.

Bready, caramel malty aroma with a surpringly boozy nose (although it’s currently room temp). Subtle banana hints. Lovely, actually quite unusual colour of clear rust. Flavour is sweet,, smooth caramel with an overarching bready flavour and a slight sharpness from the alcohol. Whilst the beer is sweet, the breadiness gives a very savoury impression. A really nice example of the style, only criticism is the lack of masking of the alcohol flavours.

Outstanding brew! Nothing over the top or WOWing, but overall just a supurb brew. Pours an amber color with a medium head. Sweet malty arome and a mild malt flavor that washes away smooth and softly. This would be a great session beer.

Like a recent reviewer I picked this sample bottle up labled as an "original oktoberfest’. Date on the lalel shows August of ’05 and I just drank it March of ’07 and it doesn’t seem any the worse for wear. I agree with other reviewers that aroma and appearance outweight the rather thin taste and slighty too bitter finish for this style of beer..still, I’ve had far worse.

An average beer. I didn’t notice any special taste or flavor. It wasn’t bad, it was nice to drink. But nothing memorable.

An easy to drink large bottle import from the D&W in EGR before it stopped carrying a good selection of beer. Malt flavor, bitter aftertaste, not a whole lot to speak of.
