Bottled. Reddish amber. The crystal malt flavour is dominating the beer. Chewy mouthfeel. Pleasant, but one-dimensional. I've never really accepted octoberfest beers made with crystal malt, but this one is pretty good.

Draft. A decent enough fest beer, nice bitter pepper aroma, plain lager like taste.

bhensonb (14964) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 25, 2009
Bottle from allendodd. Thanks for this one. Pours a very light amber with a large, frothy off-white head. Aroma is fresh fruit and caramel. Rather light in body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is caramel and some sort of light fruit. Finishes mildly fruity and lightly caramel. Not real flavorful, but nice to drink.

My thanks to Pjones6738 for this one. Very passable Marzen. Deep dark amber with a medium beige head. Strong malt aroma. Rich malt and caramel flavor with a nicely spiced finish. This is one of the better New Glarus beers I have tried so far. On a side note, I have really liked all of New Glarus’ labels so far.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2016 Good attempt from NG. It did well at our Oktoberfest tasting (among 16 others). It is not an Oktoberfest though, more just like a light Dunkel bier, i guess maybe like the amber beers of Bamberg. RERATE: this is an okto i feel ive at least had once in most of th years in between this review. It landed in the middle of the pack when tasting 33 of them blind last year. First impression: I do not remember this beer being so light. This is way lighter than I remember it being. I swear it used to be waaay darker. This is a beutiful brew. The aroma is full-throttle. It starts with almsot a hint of smoke, intensley herbal and resinous noble hops, hint of vinegar on the nose, it is also fruity, almost figgy. Complex, bold, and non-traditional. The flavor is a suprise. This is nothing like what I remember this beer being. It is sweet, honey-like malt character, strawberry, lower bodied mouthfeel but a bit silky. Has a hint of diacetyl, comes of kind of zwickel-like with a minerally breadcrust finish. This is a surprise. This has to be a new recipe. A visceral and interesting deviation on the oktoberfestbier.
