Very delicious beer. I shared a pitcher of this stuff with some friends at a beer garden in Astoria, Queens, NYC. A nice middle-ground beer: not too dark, not too light. Nice amber color, sweet taste and smooth body.

Pale golden, bubbly and quickly disappearing head. Aroma is somewhat hoppy. Has a bitter taste, but not a beer to remember.

Sampled on tap at SIB, pours murky brown. Flavour of malts, bread and wood. Not bad.

Oakes (17842) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2007
Had this in bottle at a German restaurant in Victoria. Didn’t realize I hadn’t given it the RB treatment. Very good beer. Bright dark amber colour is bang-on. The aroma and flavour are clean and well-defined earthiness and caramel. There’s a touch of toastiness as well. Full body. The finish is excellent sweet caramel and I love the way the earthy hops sneak in there as well. The bit in the commercial description about "rich textured palate and underlying sweetness" is very apt. This is really, really good marzen. Now the question - if I can find it at a restaurant in Victoria, why not any bottle shop in BC?

brokensail (16486) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 20, 2011
A: The beer pours a light copper/dark amber color with a finger of off-white head. S: There is a touch of skunk on the nose, but I only get it at first. Otherwise, good sweet bread, caramel, and toffee aromas. Nice toasted malts along with some floral hops and a touch of spice. T: A smooth sweetness to the beer which is not overwhelming. Spiced bread, toffee, and caramel are all present along with some floral and spicy noble hops to balance the beer out. Very minimal bitterness, perhaps just a touch on the finish. M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation. O: It’s not my favorite Oktoberfest, but it’s not bad, and it’s readily available, so not a terrible choice.

Benzai (15932) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle @ Café Brecht. Clear golden color, full sized white head. Smell and taste malts, lightly sweet initially but a nice hayish and slight bitter finish. I quite like it.

Slightly roasted malt flavor. Deep coppery color. No real head. Sweet malt flavor. Then enough hop comes up to balance the malt; almost anyway. Medium bodied, but tends to thin. Carbonation is light to medium. The hop finally gets a chance in the finish, when things finallly seem to balance. Decent drink.
