UPDATED: MAY 14, 2014 For a beer that doesn’t come from the land of bratwurst, Sprecher’s Oktoberfest tastes a lot like the genuine artifact. The malt’s caramel quality is supple but balanced by a light, crisp hopping. Big on flavor but low on bitterness, this lager is an autumnal treat, one that begs to be paired with sausage or other spiced meats.

Aroma is sweet and enticing, but flavor is slight and on the sweet side with poor balance. Creamy lingering flavor is probably the highlight of a weak Marzan.

sweet, malt, caramel. A little bready. Similar taste, a little bit of a dry finish. A little bittersweet, possibly dark dried fruit.

Pours a nice looking ruby reddish dark amber. Large frothy dense off-white head, partially lasting with lace. Malty sweet aroma, caramel, little toffee, bready. Medium body. Finish is dry, a bit earthy, residual sweetness too. Classic oktoberfest. Classic oktoberfest that leans a little more towards the dryer, nuttier side.

Bottle. Toasty caramel malt aroma. Deep amber with a large apricot/tan head. Flavor same as nose - toast and caramel malt flavor with a very subtle toasty bitter finish. Body on the light side of medium, average carbonation.

16oz, Sprecher bottle, twist-off. Rusty brown color, dark tan head. Initial aroma of musty attic, it may be an old bottle. As it opens up there is a bit more of toasted malt, caramel character. As well as some fruity notes. It definitely needed to open. Somewhat of a metallic character, some toffee-like notes, some caramel, toasted malts flavors. Soft, creamy texture. Overall, there is a dominating fruity character in this beer that kinda takes it away from the style of Oktoberfest/Märzen for me. It is definitely in the category of Vienna with the slightest blood line to an Alt bier. Still a great beer, (BUT) with more of toasted caramel & fruit esters, and less oak, it just isn’t Märzen for me... (3668)

Bottle poured into a shaker. Roasty caramel with a good dose of citrus fruityness. Pretty decent beer, considering I don’t like Marzen styles.

3.4

Pours orange with a thin wispy tan head. Notes of sweet caramel, munich malt, caramelized wort, fruit, plums, raisins, dates. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.

16 oz bottle pours amber brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of caramel malt, spice and a little citrus. Taste is caramel, toffee, syrup and grass.
