Pours a very clear copper color with a very small off white head that dissipated very quickly. The aroma is brown bread and caramel. The taste is very similar to the aroma. Seems like the aroma and flavor have weakened since it's an older bottle.

Tap sample at the brewery. Clear deep copper color with a minimal head. Caramel malt nose, with spicy hops and soft fruitiness. Juicy malt flavor, with marmalade, ale-like fruitiness and medium bitterness. Medium bodied, not dry and OK.

3.5
Rynoplasty (700) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 29, 2009
Pours amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is caramel. Flavor is also a whole lot of caramel, with hints of toffee and a some metallic hints. Not bad.

3.2
Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 14, 2004
Dark copper with a creamy light tan head. Lots of toasty caramel aromas. Slightly smoky roasted malt and brown sugar flavors. Fruity undertones are noticeable prior to a slightly sour note in the finish. Good carbonation and a smooth body rounds this out nicely.

jgentgesdo (694) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 16, 2007
Pours hazy orange with a medium tan head. Nose is creamy malts and faint grassy hops, oregano. Nice, sweet nutty malt backbone quickly changes to an interesting spicy and yeasty middle, with grassy hops notes. Slight caramel/toffee aftertaste. Rather bitter for a Marzen. Creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good.

cbeers21 (693) - Miami, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2007
Nice amber/brown with smallish head. Nice raosted malts and juicy fruit flavors emerge from this seasonal brew. Applesauce, berries, corn, malts, and a touch of alcohol mark the aromas. A full flavored entry with coffee roasting, fruit balanced and subtle hops which has a souring tinge effect on the tounge, yet yields a creamier body. A nice Oktoberfest brew.

3.6
scoth (693) - 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.

2.8
freeofthoughts (688) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Tap pours clear copper with a touch of red and a little off white fizz. Minor aroma of sweet grains. At first there doesn?t seem like much in this beer, but under further drinkage there is in fact something. While being quite light and seemingly thin there is a nice grainy spice that lends itself well to the seasonal trends of food and brew. On top of that there is a decent dryness that ends with a nice earthy feel and a graininess. Decent overall

3.4
noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2008
Bottle, pilsner glass. Pours a hazy autumnal orange, an over-exuberant beige head overflows my glass. Leaves a nice lacing at first, but the suds slide down the glass back into the beer eventually. Aromas of yeast and caramel, with some smoky notes in there, too. First mouthfeel of suds tastes mostly of smoke. Once I start drinking real beer, there’s this huge malty body. Caramel is there in flavor, but the smooth texture feels more like sudsy creaminess than caramel at this point. There some orange flavor and fruit-juicy elements here, too, with some sour and bitter orange-zest notes to offset the sweetness. Caramel-smooth and slightly peppery in the finish.
