Thinner oktoberfest, slight diacetyl, caramel grains, slight mineral. Bready. It is okay. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 20, 2014
12oz bottle, purchased from Brennan’s in Madison during GTMW. Clear red orange color. Thin khaki head, that leaves nice thicker lace. Medium body. Good smooth kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Nice full creamy mouthfeel. Light slick finish. Caramel, spicy malt. Some spicy peppery earthy hop to it, more malt driven flavor, though. Moderate bitter taste, light spicy edge to it. Light to moderate sweet. Pretty solid, enjoyable oktoberfest. Better than expected. Great with my dinner of course, but good to enjoy on it’s own, too.

Bottled. Poured clear, reddish-orange with a sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up odd, kinda funky fruity and floral notes with detergent and other fruity accents.. didn’t seem right. The flavor found sweet caramel and toasted grains at the core, with tart floral and leafy notes around.. finished tart with some residual sugars too. Lighter-bodied and grainy on the palate.. higher carbonation.. ok overall feel. nuplastikk (6414) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 27, 2011
12oz bottle. Filtered bronzed amber color with a soapy, off-white head. Mild, mellow sweet aroma, some lager tones and a faint hop spiciness. Medium bodied, malt forward, this is a pretty decent example of the style. Some orange tones that seem a little awkward, but a clean, toasty malt bill keeps it sailing smooth. Very subtle and enjoyable, but not quite a World Class example. theisti (4175) - Kansas, USA - JUL 17, 2015
12 oz bottle that was left behind at my parents house at some point. The pour is a clear copper brown with a one inch off white head. The aroma is sweet nut, earth malt and a bit of grass. The taste is the sweet malt, cereal grain, a bit of cardboard and grass towards the back. The palate is medium bodied with lower carbonation and the oldish finish. Bit dull, though I am sure this is pretty aged.

Hazed amber with a pillowy taupe head that fades slowly. Aroma of caramel, toffee, light fruit, pale malt and some noble hops. Taste in line with aroma with caramel and toffee and light hops. Ok. madvike (3286) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle - Lightly hazy caramel color with a thin foamy white head. Real pleasant smell--light toffee and toasted malt. Faint herbal hops. Taste is a bit buttery malt, lightly toasted with some mild nuttiness. Real faint hopping through the finish. A bit of biting carbonation, and fairly watery. Not bad for the style, but the taste doesn’t quite live up to the smell. Atom (2556) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2015
12oz bottle pours a clear copper/orange with a huge khaki head. Sweet caramel and tootsie roll aroma. Sweet malt taste with some drying nuttiness and yeast. Not a bad Marzen, drinkable. arkurzynski (2456) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Deep amber color. Nose of cheap caramel malt and some noble hops. Not much coming through on the malt side, with a resounding bitterness that seems a bit heavy for the style. Some plastic. A bit overly dry as well. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - APR 20, 2012
Nice amber color with bready caramel scent. Wonderful roast taste and goes down super smooth.
