Slightly alcoholic taste. Thick for a lager. Smooth to the palate, with a crisp finish.

chinchill (4440) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 5, 2016
12 oz bottle. The deep amber colored body has excellent clarity and a moderate size, semi-durable head. Minimal lacing. The aroma is hoppy for style but the flavor has a typical hop/malt balance. Overall: a solid, mainstream marzen.

Hiledd (99) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 2, 2016
Malt and pumpkin aroma, clear copper color. Thin to medium body for style, dissipates quickly, stronger start than finish. Pumpkin, toffee, and caramel flavor. Could use a bit more body and finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Frank (4047) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2016
This is a pretty decent American Oktoberfest. It’s a bit on the sweet side, strong and heavy, but does have a pretty nice toasty/raisiny malt quality to it--even verging on a bit roasty. It’s quite bitter in the finish and slightly metallic but not so much it really ruins your day. Dry this out, tame the ABV a bit, fix the slight flaws and you got yourself a really good beer.

From a 12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear amber with an ecru head. Malty nose. Nutty flavors, caramel flavors. Smooth finish.

dlihcsnatas (647) - Texas, USA - OCT 16, 2016
Amber brew with small fast fading head. Smell and taste is dominated by caramelized malts but it is not overly sweet as I first thought it was going to be. Really good brew that I am enjoying today and will buy this one again next year.
