A nice everyday drinking beer. Nothing fancy, just a tasty beer that goes GREAT together with steak. Will definitely get again.

The beer has a fresh aroma with caramel and a distinctive grain bin smell. Smells exactly like being in the brewery when an Oktoberfest is being brewed. Gold to copper color with a creamy head. Big grain taste with a non-hop bite at finish. Hearty and dense mouthfeel.

blackbock (121) - Shoalhaven NSW, AUSTRALIA - OCT 13, 2011
(bottle) Bottle opened with a delightful pop. Rich caramel and yeast aroma. Mid amber colour. Fine white head which laced the glass. Flavours of sweet toffee and almond. Hops are present but not overpowering. Finish is not heavy, despite the initial caramel hit. This is definitely in my top 3 Märzens. Prost!

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear light brown color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is all malt. The taste is rich toasted malt. An excellent beer.

JPDIPSO (6002) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2002
Briliant clear orange amber color with a thick head. Caramel and toast flavors in the malt. The old 0.5l bottles still have more flavor than the new 12 oz. bottles. Still one of the top ten oktoberfests. Finish in bitter enough to cut though all the malt. A good fall brew.

This is my benchmark for all other Octoberfests and so far, I haven’t found anything as good. Caramel flavor and just the right amount of malt to make for a very drinkable beer.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2004 Delicious Oktoberfest, I had this one for free from a great bartender at Stuff Yer Face. Thanks Tony. This is right up there with Paulaner.

A benchmark for Oktoberfest beers. Sweet malty aroma and taste that is the trademark of Oktoberfest beers. Goes down smooth. Easy to drink in responsible celebratory quantities.
