A huge creamy head tops the pale orange/copper body. The aroma has clean toasted malt with a touch of caramel sweetness. Nice lively carbonation. It has a lightly toasted bread flavor with some malty sweetness and a very light earthy bitterness to balance it out. Pretty decent.

Bottle, big thanks to Iowaherkeye! Pours a crystalline copper with a small fluffy head. I get sticky caramel, green apples, leaves, and a bit of vegetation in the nose. After taking a sip, I have to say I was expecting a bit more hops. I wasn’t thinking anything crazy, but this one seems to be focused more on the malty qualities and is on the sweeter side, sporting some candied attributes. It has a faint hint at biscuits with a barely tart finish. All right for an Oktoberfest, I suppose. I just can’t get into the style.

A nice Oktoberfest Marzen that really shines with traditioal flavor. Full malty taste with a hint of biscuit/graininess. I enjoy drinking this one each year. Not my absolute favorite, but still a winner in my opinion. Clear as a bell red/amber with a long lasting head. The caramel aspect really shines through with this beer. Hops are present, yet not in the fore front.

buckybeer (666) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 10, 2007
Medium clean copper with a small off white head. Fair carbonation. Aroma and flavor is mild sweet malts, caramel, light spice and tart nuttiness. Pretty much a basic Oktoberfest which is not a bad thing. Very solid overall.

Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Thanks to drewberme for the bonus. Pours a bright coppery amber with an initial foamy head, but fades over time to nothing. Aroma is lightly toasted malts, sweet, herbal and spicy hops with a touch of white wine. Light toasted malts, vienna, and a touch of sharp crystal malt sweetness. Body is a bit on the weakside, but otherwise this is a pretty solid o-fest.

Petrucci914 (921) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Pours a dark prestine amber. Aroma is of caramel and roasted malts. Taste has a hint of caramel at first, then some bittnerness, and followed by the roasted malts. A bit too rich for me, but still good.

holdenn (2127) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2007
12 oz bottle bought in WI at some liquor store i’ll put in here when i remember or when andrew bms me (whatever comes first) Pours a clear orange read with a white head that quickly fades to a ring. Nose isn’t too much to speak of. Toasted malts, marzen, carmel, and a touch of spice. Marzen carmelled flavors. Nutty and toasted with a finish that slightly bitter cloying and dirty. Hmm, I’m not usually a fan of this style, so hey maybe its me.

12oz, no date--though I know it’s been bottled within the last month. Clear orange with hints of brown with a 1/2 finger off-white head. Aroma of nuts, toasted malts, caramel, and only a hint of floral hops. Flavor was fairly sweet--as most Oktoberfests are--and I couldn’t really pick up on any hops. Lots of caramel in the flavor along with some light toasted nuts and malts. Very low bitterness. Moderate creamy carbonation with a medium body. A very well-made Oktoberfest.
