Another good offering from Sprecher. Aroma sweet and malty. Beer poured a copper/orange color. Flavor creamy, nutty(unique to me for an Oktoberfest), with some malt sweetness.

12 ounce bottle. Coppery and hazy. A nice beige head. Just a little spice and plenty of fruit in the aroma. Feel is richer than most. Caramel flavor leads and it is akin to candy. A little fruit and sourness that is herbal, and then some grass.

Bottle from total wine. Pours slight hazy Brian with an inch of beige head. Aroma of caramel mays and grasses. Taste is caramel malts. Nothing much else. Boring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Labeled Oktoberfest 5.5%: Tea and pecan nose, honey and malt also present. Hazy tea colored, medium yellow head. Very sweet cane sugar, honey, and pecan. Some fusel alcohol. Light body, moderate carbonation. Drinkable, but cloying.

JDBaker11058 (1999) - Maryland, USA - OCT 25, 2015
appearance: clear coppery orange, with a finger of creamy beige head that shrinks to a collar; good curtains of bubbles linger. aroma: caramel, toffee, raspberry, cherry, toasted nuts. taste: very sweet caramel and toffee up front, then the fruitiness from the aroma comes through clearly; then comes a bit of earthy, almost herbal bitterness. finish: the malty, fruity sweetness comes back at the very end, but there’s also a hint of minerality that comes out. notes: This is a good oktoberfest. It’s a little rich and fruity for my preferences in the style, but it’s undeniably good. Only thing I wasn’t wild about was the slightly astringent, herbal minerality on the back end.

hayduke (4985) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle from a friend in Wisconsin. Pours pour from the 12o stuffy bottle red amber with an off-white head and decent lacing . Nose of rich roasted caramel malts. Medium body and very smooth lager mouthfeel. Flavor hows toffee and a bit of floral hoops., Finishes earth and dry, .A very nice Marzen in the German style. I liked this one a lot.

rondphoto (4176) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 25, 2015
bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Clear amber brown color, beige head cover, streaks of lace. Taste is caramel toffee and malt that becomes more earthy and bitter on the swallow, then moves neatly to a lingering sweet finish. Nothing notable here, just as it should be: comfort beer for nippy autumn evenings.

HonusWagner (2127) - Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2014
A sweeter interpretation of the style, a bit muddy flavorwise but tending towards general caramel maltiness. Lacks the complexity of the Full Sail Marzen, but still a really good version of the style.

On tap. Very good Oktoberfest, malty, thick, and sweet. One of the better American examples of a Marzen.
