On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear gold with a orange hue with a white head that dissipates nearly completely. Aroma has notes of sweet grains and bread and not much else. Flavor has a bit of nuttiness as well as sweet grain and bread. BVery (10600) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Tap at the brewhouse - I’ll assume that this one is the one they are calling "Stonetoberfest." Orange pour, thin head. Mild nose of sweet caramel. Thinner palate but about right for the style. Mild caramel and biscuit taste but kind of flat. nuplastikk (6312) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 13, 2012
12oz bottle picked up at the brewey.."Stonetoberfest". Thin filtered orange-copper. Not so impressive. Kind of macro brewhouse, faint noble hop aroma. Very thin, insipid body. That said, the flavor is tolerable..amber malt, caramel. Subtle and easy going, but sort of a hollow final product. JPDIPSO (6236) - Wauwatosa, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Toasted malt atop some higher alcohols and hint of light fruit. Bright, clear umber color with a diminished light beige head. Full maltiness, with some toasted malt and nuttiness. Smells like a toasty malt liquor, and tastes like a strong nut brown. 8/11

On draught at the Appleton brewpub as "Stonetoberfest." Pours aclear copper amber with a fast dissolving off-white head that dissipates to a thin off-white ring and some spotty lacing. Aroma of semi-sweet multi-grain malt, some dark pitted fruits, a touch of bubblegum and some candi sugar. Taste is medium bodied, malty, with a mild bitter aftertaste. Finish is semi-dry with a light malt aftertaste. It’s a little drier to most other octoberfest beers I’ve tried bust still refreshing.

Draught sample at the brewpub, early October 2006. Ruddy amber-bronze in color with a lasting ring of off-white head....sweetish malty nose, a bit grassy but little in the way of smoky, earthy tones that you’d hope for....light toasty-smoky malts do show up in the body, hints of tobacco, moderately sweet but watery and a bit dull especially towards the finish which offers a bit of sour cherry. Not really much to go on... tmoreau (4420) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2015
On tap at the Sister Bay, WI. Lions Club venue for this year’s Fall Fest, served to plastic showing a hazed, coppery brown color, with a fairly frothy, off white head, and some wavy spray-like lacing. The nose was slightly sweet & malty, with a little toast & caramel. A little less than medium bodied with fair carbonation, the taste contributed some modest, earthy bitterness. Not much of a caramel sweetness advocate when it comes to Marzens, but decent enough, and quite drinkable for the occasion. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 4, 2011
On tap at Stone Cellar as Stonetoberfest. Clear amber with a thin beige head. Aroma of grains, toasted malt, caramel and very mild hops. Taste of toasted malt, mild toffee, sweet malt and bready malt. Light bitter finish. IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 25, 2008
