Dogbrick (11851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2004
Dark copper color with a medium thin beige head. Minimal lacing. There is a fair amount of sweet malt and caramel in the aroma. Medium bodied and it has a crisp side too. Sweet malt flavor dominates yet there is a faint sourness and bitterness every once in awhile. Kind of a Jekyll & Hyde thing. The finish is clean and sweet. Overall this is an average Marzen.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2016 I lied in my last review when I stated I was finally done with Oktoberfests this season, somehow this bottle landed in my lap so I ought to review it. Pours a lot more reddish than most Oktoberfests, with a big dirty white head. Smell is typical but with a hint of toecheese. The smell is awful for an Oktoberfest This is one freaky tasting Oktoberfest, hops are there but it is ultra fruity and metallic. One of the worst Oktoberfests I have tasted. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-14-2009 23:09:00 Re-review. So it has been 7 years since first and last consuming this brew. Let’s give it another shot. Pours a typical amber pour for the style. This is a highly aromatic oktoberfest... what i wasn’t identifying in the original review is the strange similarity the aroma of this beer has with high grav malt liquor. My last review was terrible... But to expound on what i must have been smelling woudl be a pale ale scent akin to sierra nevada, but with that high grav malt must over the top. Flavor is is heavy and unapologetic ally very similar to st.ides except it is maltier and more metallic. I’m surprised and pleased that my summation as a practical juvenile still holds true.

djd07 (11310) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2009
On tap at flying saucer. Pours a clear copper with a thick creamy off white head with good sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a sweet malt with toast and light caramel. Medium mouthfeel with a bready malt with spicy grain and a nice bitter dry finish. Easy to drink, a very good marzen from left hand.

daknole (10893) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 25, 2008
this just isnt a good beer. Amber pour. Metallic and malty aroma. Flavor is full of a weird tart metallic component that totally made me drain pour it. Nasty.

hopscotch (10707) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2006
Bottle... Clear copper lager with a small, tight, off-white head that’s gone in a flash. Toasted nuts and caramel nose. Caramel-sweet flavor with decent hop crispness and bitterness to keep things nearly balanced. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Finishes lightly sweet; bordering on crisp.

Bottle @ home. Dark amber appearance with an off white head. Toasty caramel malty, slightly nutty, toffee, lightly grassy-floral hoppy nose. Grassy, caramel, toffee malty lager flavor with some floral notes. A little too sweet and unbalanced for my taste.
