COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is available each autumn in celebration of the great Bavarian festival season. Brewed in late spring and cellared throughout the summer, our Oktoberfest is produced through traditional methods as it has been for centuries in Germany, This copper-hued lager owes its rich malt flavor to a generous combination of select Vienna and Munich malts. Cool, open-fermentation develops a subtle elegance and drinkability suited to any festive occasion.

FlyingSwine (174) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - SEP 17, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown/amber with a medium head. Little to no lacing. Sweet aroma, well balanced on the malty side. Flavor is fruity and sweet. Palate is medium bodied and creamy, although it finishes a bit on the dry side. Overall this is a very drinkable Marzen.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - SEP 15, 2008
Dusty aroma of dark bread and pear candies. Flavour combines some very nice medium full malts with a hoppy finish. Nice balance, nice session, nice autumn beer.

3.2
hillfiiiiire (323) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Pours a gold with no head. Aroma is bready and sweet. Flavor is sweet caramels balanced fairly nicely with spicy hops. Finishes with a light body, and is overall a decent beer but seems to miss the essence of Oktoberfest.

3.5
ekstedt (6976) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2008
Bottle (35 cl) from Systembolaget. Beatiful clear mahogny with a medium beige head. Generous malt aroma with some nutty and caramelly notes, along with earthy and herbal hops. Well balanced with a dry finish. Very nice and drinkable lager from this not-my-favourite-American-brewery.

3.2
ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2008
Bottled. Pours out in a clear amber colour with a low of white foam. Malty sweet aroma of caramel, fudge, nuts, mild vanilla and caramelized sugar. Medium-bodied with a malty flavour of caramel, burnt sugar, roasted nuts and mild spicy hops. Caramelly finish with touches of toasted malts and nuts.

3.2
robforbes (2266) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - SEP 9, 2008
pours a clear copper with a red tint, small beige head, some lacing.
smell of caramel, roasted nuts, somewhat earthy.
taste is crisp, caramel, light amount of tin, some nuts, ends oily and thick with a little bitterness, as it warms becomes more watery.

3.6
scoth (690) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 7, 2008
Pours clear amber-brown with a medium-thick off-white head, great lacing. Carmel malt and apple aroma. Smooth, fairly thin body, typical of a lager, well carbonated. Nicely balanced flavor, caramel, spicy, even a little smokey, and a little floral, hop bitterness in the aftertaste.

3.1
HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Pours a dark amber with nice, creamy head. Spicey, dough aroma. Flavor is grassy and leafy, with some sour dough and toffee. A little bitterness towards the back of the throat. Definitely full-bodied, easy drinking ale. Nothing mind-blowing though.

thejoeshow (232) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a rich, deep amber/gold color with a nice cream colored head. There is not a lot of lacing and the retention is a little lacking though. The aroma is excellent! This is what an Oktoberfest should smell like. Very large caramel aromas, backed with a nice grainy note. Very nice. Flavor is nice and rich, full f caramel malt. This beer is nice and smooth on the palate and I could see myself in a big tent drinking massive mugs full of this. Nice representation of a good marzen.

3.5
MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2008
I do like the marzens, leafy, grass tones are all around in it. It smells like a pretty standard lager, nothing too special. The look of it is a nice amber with a thin cream head on top. The flavor really picks up the grassy spicy flavors. The mouth feel is pretty smooth as well, all in all, a very nice drinkable beer.
