Real marzens are not orange in color and have more character but this offering is not nearly as poor as the reviewers have scored this malty lager. It’s very drinkable and the price vs. more expensive competitors makes it a decent beer.

12 oz. bottle. Pours out a clear deep gold with a small head. Nice sweet malty caramel aroma. Taste falls a bit flat and comes off with undesirable sour notes. I will pass on this one next time.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is a really weak oktoberfest. Pours an orange color with a medium to small sized fluffy head that is gone within minuts. Nose is lager like and smells of wheat and a bit of nuts. Taste is very watery and plain. A bit of malt but nothing else really.

This rating concludes the latest round of Leinie’s torture I have put myself through. I have had worst Ofests, but not many. Flat, cardboardy, spoilt caramel sweetness, with a sour, grainy finish.

bottle - Pours light amber with a two finger head that fades fast and a light caramel malt aroma. It has decent caramel malt flavor and is a pretty light, smooth beer. It’s not bad, but then again there are certainly better Oktoberfests out there.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2011 Clear, copper with a quickly disappearing head. Grain, caramel, and sour mash aroma. Zesty hops and mild sour fruit flavour. Mild dry-hop finish.

Not a huge Marzen style fan but it was a pretty good representation of the style. Taste is slightly sweet with a pleasant smoothness throughout. Not bad at all.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Has a pleasing copper color with a light tan head, but the taste is quite nondescript. It does have a light, crisp finish that makes me think it could be consumed in large quantities if taste or complexity aren’t really concerns.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Smooth pour with so/so head. Has a light scent. Have to search for the flavor which can take a little away, and there is not much finish. For the price here, this is an OK brew.
