pours amber with a nice tan head.aroma is very malty,carmel and dough.nice sweet malt flavor with a tinge of hops at the end.nice carbonation as im watching the bubbles swarming up from the bottom.medium body with a slight dry hop finish.have had about 100 marzen style beers and this is right up there with the best.sam adams should be very proud of this.
Another great taste, more filling. Carmel, hops and a smile on your face. Thinking of fall as you drink this

Crisp. Malty with a light bitterness. Notes of caramel and toffee. Thin. watery. Boring.

Pour us a thin amber with clarity. Smells of buttered bread and corn, nice malt level. Taste is baked bread abd malty as hell. Long buttery after taste. Canmoore (484) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2017
Pours a dark copper, with a large off white head. Aroma has notes of caramel, toasty malts, and some light esters. Tasting notes include caramel, honey, biscuit, smoke, and some light spices. Nice Oktoberfest beer! HULK777 (620) - - SEP 17, 2017
Aroma is crackers and buns. Taste is caramel, citrus, and a little bit salty also.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2017 Great Octoberfest beer. If you're looking to try an Octoberfest beer start with this one you will not be disappointed. felsenpils (181) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 8, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Nice orange label with a German beer mug on it. Pours a very clear amber with an off-white head. The aroma is clean and quite malty. The flavor is also quite clean and the beer is not overpowered by caramel malts. This is a fine example of classic Oktoberfest beer the way it used to be made, but is no more. In Germany, you must brew within the city limits of Munich in order to put the word "Oktoberfest" on your label. Unfortunately, all of those breweries have abandoned this style and are now serving the less expensive to make Helles Lager at the Oktoberfest celebration. The brewery in Aying does still make this style, but they can only call it Oktoberfest beer if they export it. If you like Ayinger Oktober Fest Märzen, you will like this beer. So, do not expect anything like this if you travel to Munich for the Oktoberfest and are prepared to pay $13 for a poorly poured (half foam) liter of beer. This is by far my favorite Samuel Adams beer to date. Most of them, I do not care for. NikkTwist (3286) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2017 Draft at The Irish Pol. Mostly clear dark copper pour. Soft white foam. Toasted grains. Dark citrus hops. Bread crusts. Tangelos. Plantains. Molasses. Cola. Burnt butter. Sweet mocha caramels. Nice character but feels a bit artificial. mackanerland (3) - - SEP 6, 2017 does not count
Must admit this is a fantastic beer. Not very complex but this beer proofs not all beers have to be. Pretty good work for not being able to spell to "Oktoberfest"

Brown-amber pour. Caramel, malty nose. Rich, malty, sweet caramel flavors. Excellent Oktoberfest.
