Sampled with Moreau and Andrew at GABF 2012. Had this towards the end of the night, after nearly 75 beers and my thoughts were "it’s good for an oktoberfest/Marzen!" Will need to seek this one out for more defined notes but my general thought was that it was good, not great. Huhzubendah (3705) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 21, 2012
The beer appears dark orange and hazy, with a quarter inch of off white head. The aroma is very pleasant, with malt, fruit, and sugar candies. Pretty sweet, with a cotton candy flavor. Really creamy feel, with a lasting sweetness on the palate. Marshmallows? Medium thin body with adequate carbonation. Pretty good beer. The sweet nature of this brew limits this to one serving for me.

Cloudy brown beer. Small off white head. Crispy semi dry palate. Quite a rich malt base, dry. A little tart fruit, a little malt cream. Finishes dry with typical noble hop bitterness. Different! Not my favourite Shorts but interesting!
12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Appearance is a copper color with a paper-thin off-white head. Aroma is lots of rich German malts and a dash of German hops. The taste is similar, but I can also taste some roasted malts. It seems really off for an oktoberfest. It looks and smells great, but that taste just isn’t right.

12 oz. bottle from notes. Pours a clear amber brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, caramel, some earthy notes and light citrus, some cocoa, decent enough Oktoberfest, but nothing to seek out. crossovert (12879) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2015
355ml bottle. Poured into a perfect pint. Dar amber color, off-white head. Aroma almost milky bready toasted caramel. Flavor is roastier and toastier for an oktoberfest, plenty of hops too, caramel, bread, interesting Amero-take. RoscoeJackson (372) - Michigan, USA - AUG 21, 2010
pretty hoppe for an oktoberfest. this one just didn’t really do anything for me. deyholla (11597) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a slight maple hue and a tan head that dissipated completely. Aroma has a relatively strong caramel note with a bit of roast and bread. Flavor begins sweet with caramel but mellows a roasted malts grow with a bread note.
