UPDATED: SEP 3, 2014 On Tap @ Mr. Dunderbak’s, Sarasota Square Mall (in 1983). Alongside Spaten Optimator, this is the 2nd best beer i have ever tasted (at the time).
I’ve only had it on tap, but i’m sure it’s very good in the bottle as well. Malty, sweet, smooth, Bavarian goodness! Highly recommended, josanguapo (2033) - SPAIN - OCT 4, 2016
From cervezasespeciales. In Bavaria glass. Watching Los Soprano 4x02. Deliciously malty, sweet with a good bite of hops to compensate and a superb drinkability. My new prefered marzen austinpowers (2831) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 3, 2002
This brewery can do no wrong. A marvelous amber marzen with plenty of fantastic aromas coming out of the glass (or in my case, the plastic cup). A malty mouthfeel with hints of chocolate. A real winner! Tons o' malty goodness here. My favorite marzen/okto, hands down! robharing (82) - Ormond Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2005

carmely hoppy balanced, nothing impressive but nothing bad, straight-forward.
Appearance is amber with a thin head, medium body, and medium carbonation.
Flavor is full of toffee and caramel. There is a definite note of caramelization, like is typical from decoction mashing, in which grains are pulled from the mash and simmered over high heat before being stirred back in. Yeast and alcohol esters are moderate. Hop flavor, hop bitterness, and minerality are all very muted.
Overall, this beer’s focus is all about caramelized malt, which is my favorite aspect of traditional Oktoberfest beers.
Probably the best you can find in Oktoberfest, so there’s nothing more to say... Elizagroff (6) - - AUG 18, 2014 does not count
Terra cotta in color, beautiful clarity, no sediment, 1/4" head. Fresh peach scent similar to the scent of a mildly citrusy Sauvignon Blanc. Taste is sweet malt up front with body of caramel, orange peel, & clove, with a nicely hopped finish. felsenpils (184) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 13, 2016
330ml bottle. This pours a very clear light amber color. The aroma is very clean. The taste is right on with flavors of a Helles merged with a Dunkles which is what a great Märzen/Oktoberfest should taste like. What a shame that I can drink this in the US, but it is not served in Munich at the Oktoberfest where they charge a fortune for regular Helles lager.
