Bottled(500ml). -Golden coloured, medium sized white head, lively carbonation. Pleasant hoppy nose with touch of lemon. Sweet malty, hoppy and grainy with notes of hay. Light alcoholic and rather bitter finish. Simple and good oktoberfestbier. 6.3%.

Received a couple in my care package from Nathan. I do like an Oktoberfest beer. Has the color of melted butter with a large, white head. Minimal lacing. This beer is malty and sweet. Notes of banana and bread. Goes great with salty foods.

Quack-Duck (9356) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2008
bottle. Clear pale golden yellow, large white head. Malty nose. Full-bodied, fruity (banana) with good malty flavours. Aromatic hops underneath, but not too shy. Quite well balanced - I liked it.

On tap at Mahars. Very lager looking in the glass, made me an instant skeptic. But wow is it flavorful. Full of spicy notes and fall goodness, really something good here.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 13, 2008
12oz bottle from BevMo Mission Valley. Pours a deep gold color with a small amount of foamy white head that lasts. Does not have the usual orange Oktoberfest hew. Aroma is hayish, sweet fruits, slight caramel, kinda like a mix of an octoberfest and a pilsner. Flavor is light and crisp, slightly skunk aftertaste, hay, and crisp hoppy finish.

The worst goddam Octoberfest beer I’ve ever had. The aroma is very malty, with corn, and other adjuncts. The color is a very pale ywellow, with a white head. This is thus far indistinguishable from a pale lager, the most odious of beers. The flavor very hoppy, and spicy. WTF??? This is not at all like a Marzen. There is a strong hoppy character on the finish. This waas not at all what I was expecting, and I wasn’t pleasantly surprised.

lemasney (398) - Trenton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2008
Bottle, part of a six pre fix from Canal’s Lawrenceville, NJ, bright golden color, brilliant, hefty head, wheaty aroma, plain, lager, taste is as plain as possible. about the norm for marzen, but that said, fairly lame. Sad and dreary, that’s oktoberfest, AFAICT. Someone correct me — what’s the point to oktoberfest-marzen styles?

Poured a straw yellow with a white head. Aroma was grassy. Flavor was a light malt with a good hoppy crispness. Drink ice cold

TEJA (2622) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2008
The final of 4 different Oktoberfest beir in our test. According to the swedish alcohol monopoly this beer is 6.3 % and a litle stronger than the others we tried. This is clearly noticable in the bigger maltiness both in taste and the aroma. With the higher maltiness it aqlso have more bitterness to make it balanced.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - SEP 7, 2008
Fresh bottle poured into proper glass. Holds a dense white head. Aroma is doughy with grains and a slight metallic aroma. Flavor is more on the sweet side than the grassy side, which I was hoping for. Some honey notes are present also along with a not horrible butteriness. I’ve had this a lot over the past week and I don’t recall this beer being so sweet.
