[Bottle] Pours clear good with a small soapy beige head. The aroma is typical marzen - grainy, a little toasty, and some caramel. The flavor is not as sweet as I was expecting, aided by the fluffy carbonation. If this was a touch flatter or warmer, it would be not nearly as palatable as it is. It helps wash the sweetness off your tongue a little faster. Sub-par marzen overall.

Millstream regularly puts out good German-style beer, and there's a lot to like about their Oktoberfest. This lager pours copper-colored. Malty sweet aromas. Nutty biscuit and caramel character. Smooth feel and a clean finish. Paulpopilek (12) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2017
Has a lager type texture. Goes down smooth. Full bold strong taste. Similar to SA Okto but lighter, no Carmel.

Bottle. Molasses/caramel malt and hay aroma. Dark amber with large light tan head. Moderately sweet nutty caramel malt and mildly bitter hay flavor. Good body. Okay but very sweet. Patrickctenchi (6808) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 18, 2016
Pours hazy amber with a small, off-white head.
Caramel, light spice scent.
Taste is slightly tangy caramel malt, toast, a bit of sweet spicing.
OK.....grew a little too sweet towards the end. HuskerTan (2449) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - OCT 31, 2015

12 oz. bottle. Pours dark amber with thick off white head that lasts. Aroma was sweet and malty. Taste was roasty and nutty with a dry finish. TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 8, 2015
Pours a clear coppery color with off-white head. Caramel malts, biscuit, and bread on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with malt. Nicely done marzen. Nuffield (4245) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Crisp, clear golden. Concord grape and peanut butter. Flat palate. Really pretty disappointing. (At Summer Beer Dabbler, St. Paul, MN) beergirlterri (1) - Iowa, USA - JUN 19, 2015 does not count
This Oktoberfest beer has a full malty body and richness to the flavor. With some sweetness and caramel notes. This brew is a very traditional Maerzen,
