On tap at Marciero. 5% a dark red copper copper pour with a caramel malty fruity tangy taste. The taste is sweet rich malty caramel with a big fruitiness to it. The taste is malty swear fruity flavor, very clean with a bit of a tangy bitter bite. Overall surprisingly solid. jinroh (2267) - ESTONIA - SEP 23, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours red orange with a small head. Looks really red actually, in a good way. Aroma is wet cardboard, washing detergent and maybe, only maybe some malt sweetness. Definitely not the best part of this beer. Taste is maltier, sweet caramel, has also a subtle bitter kick and succumbs into somewhat fruity and herbal-artficial-bitter aftertaste. Maybe it is the style, maybe am not getting it, maybe it was missed by the brewery - but not my favourite. Can drink it though. shoulderbroken (4256) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 3, 2014
Tap at Keyaki. All of these Keyaki ratings are a mess. Toffee, quite nice. Not so complex but nice enough.

Bottle as Oktoberfest 6%. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. Has a fruity malty grainy aroma with some hints of caramel. Has a fruity malty grainy flavor with some grassy hoppy hints. Has a fruity malty grainy finish with some bitterness in the aftertaste. KyotoLefty (10675) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 24, 2008
Darker than your usual Maerzen; close to a Munich Dunkel. Restrained and refined but with no real faults. Nice malt character with chocolate and caramel, good hop balance to keep the finish dry. Well made, light bodied and flavorful. austinpowers (2831) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 7, 2008
Deep bronze color. Lots of body - typical Marzen flavor. Wonder how Japan got such a german influence (schwarzbiers and marzens, for example). This is typical of the style, which I don’t much love. Nevertheless, the product is made with TLC and has no shortage of hops and malt body. A winner. TimE (6119) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 8, 2006
Deep amber color. It really looks beautiful. Slightly bready nose, med-full body with a dry malty finish. Not bad, but flavors are very retained.
