nuplastikk (6361) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2017
12oz bottle. Sort of weak offering, embarrassed to have thrown some bottles of this to friends in mix packs. Maybe a pinch too much amber malt, maybe no hop balance, maybe no lagering finesse....probably all three. Kind of a stale malty tone. In no way nails it, but drinkable on some levels.

oobawa (1583) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 10, 2017
On the fruity side of the festbier spectrum, with prominent toffee and caramel notes but most notable for the strong apple esters and lemon zest undertones offsetting the normal nutty, deep malt base. Finishes bready and semidry with a prolonged floral bitterness. Good orange hue with a moderate off-white head and some lace, but the nose is pretty nondescript, mild nuttiness but mostly pale lager blandness. Good crisp texture.

OH YES! Beautiful amber hue. Not much aroma. Huge malt taste, mixed with fresh baked biscuits, bread, butter, and dough. Thick mouthful for a marzen. Mixed in with a beautiful sweetness of honey and caramel. This is a winner!

3.5
basaywhat (297) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2017
12 oz bottle. Poured a clear copper color with a medium-to-small sized white head. Aroma is biscuit malts, crisp, clean notes, caramel malty sweetness. Taste is sweet and malty.

PanMarek (462) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Clear, dark golden pour with light beige foam that lasted moderately. Caramel malts in the nose and a touch of floral hops. Light body, active fizz. Sweet finish. Malts dominate the taste.

3.5
Jow (3981) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Tap at Rattle clean copper pour. Nose and taste are the same light malts, hintbof dries leaves, cellar floor, and caramel. Crisp and pretty good

3.1
nasmith003 (252) - Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Light malt and mineral aroma. Golden copper color, light head. Light malt flavor with a mild hop presence. Hop aftertaste lingers. Medium body and light to medium carbonation.

Foxbush (2071) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 30, 2016
Draft at the Taproom on Locust Street. The Octoberfest poured a clear Amber color with off white head and lacing. The beer aroma was of caramel malts. The balanced beer had a medium bodyw with average carbonation. The finish was smooth with some sweetness.

3.2
RobertDale (6650) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - DEC 20, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear copper with a decent off-white head. Mild aroma of malt, caramel, and yeast. Taste is malt, caramel, yeast, and some fruit. Decent.
