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.

jonwayne4883 (401) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 1, 2007
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.

Punkero (401) - FINLAND - SEP 25, 2016
Clear malty aroma. Some boogie in taste. Some sweet märzen characteristics. Caramel probably. Light. I’d drink this in the fest.

bottled. pours crystal clear light brown/amber, with a medium tan tight head. aromas of roasted malt, earth and basement. a touch of sweetness and sourness. light bodied thin mouth feel and a bit flat. a finish of sweet roasted malt on the tongue, which finishes quickly and sweetly,

TerryR (391) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2006
12 oz. bottle. Deep amber with a thick tan head. Aroma of sweet malt. Sweet malty flavor with some roasted notes. Smooth finish. Fall beers are a lot more interesting than most summer beers. Extra points for the history of the style.

BigMilly8 (389) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2007
From draft at World of Beer Oktoberfest : Pours dark gold with a quick dieing head. Kinda of a appley aroma. Flavor was roasted, and palate was watery for a marzen. Very carbonated. Finishes with a watery caramel aftertaste.

H-P is probably the most consistently disappointing brewery. Their products look nice and I always anticipate a good beer, but I have yet to try a brew of their’s I would consider better than good. Dominated by yeast with fleeting fruitiness, this is another let-down.
