Has a dark brown color. Smell is malty, somewhat sweet. Taste is a good balance of bready malts and hop bitterness, some caramel. Overall a quality beer.

Huhzubendah (3685) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 28, 2017
Draft at Cafe Berlin in D.C. Transparent, orange body with a half inch of white head. German lager and fresh hops aroma. Similar flavor. Fresh, quaffable, delicious.

hershiser2 (2793) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 14, 2016
$4.70 pint+ bottle from Wine Warehouse. Pours orange with almost no head to speak of. Aroma is grass, leaves, light fruit, earth. Flavor is green and grown leaves, grasses, cheap lager, grains. This is a top 50 Oktoberfest? Meh.

Draught at Gourmet Haus. Malt dominated but lacking well rounded, rich aspects. A little husky. Slightly hazed copper.

bnokk (518) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - APR 10, 2016
APPEARANCE- looks like a true style Oktoberfest, like a marzen should. Better head than mor beers ive drinken at Munich’s octonerfest (an interesting note for my followers, my profile pic on RB is a selfie from the Haufbrau tent in 2014). NOSE- very little of anything in the nose. FLAVOR- very light flavor. Probably good for drinking large quantities at the event, bit if I want a beer that has some character, this isn’t it.
