willblake (2664) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - SEP 26, 2010
20100926 tap at Wilmington. Darker appearance for a marzen with creamy, sticky beige head. Soft pretzel and raisin aroma with a mild leafiness. A bit on the sweet side but plenty drinkable and hardly too sweet. Decently done, if only above average, but well above average for a brewpub Oktoberfest.

ROGUE (2216) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - DEC 1, 2010
On tap at Wilmington brewpub. Pours a clear copper color with a one finger of frothy off white head wich leaves some lacing. The aroma is sweet bready malts with spicy hops. The taste is intially sweet, with a big breadiness that is balanced with some spicy drying bitterness, which gives this a very smooth finish. The mouthfeel is medium and crisp, with moderate carbonation.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2006
North Wales. Ultra-bright, deep golden body with a sudsy white head. Nutty, sweet malt aroma with mild toast and soft, fruity esters. Rich Vienna malt flavor with some good nutty and fruity depth. Woody/earthy hops in the finish with moderate bitterness. Moderately sweet, but not cloying. Very sessionable. One of the better Oktoberfests. Not dull and trite like some.

Draft at Maple Shade. Poured a clear orange/amber with a smaller quickly and totally disipating white head. Aroma had notes of grain, spice and nutts. Flavor was mostly amber malt with light spice, cereal and biscuit. Solid beer that is easily sessionable.
