A great local version of an Oktoberfest classic. Locally brewed by Two Bros. They nailed this one! damayor---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone Teg12 (2) - - APR 22, 2017 does not count
Nice balance of simple physics with a touch of pop. No huge hoppy explosion. Not too sweet or sour. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2016
Poured into a perfect pint.
3.5 A: Clear light orange color. Two fingers of frothy/creamy beige head. Retention is about average and lots of spotty lacing is left.
5.0 S: This smells absolutely wonderful. Toasted malts, layers of caramel, and that lager yeast twang. Oak adds a nice layer of complexity with vanilla contributions. This is whatever the olfactory version of "smooth" is. It’s just such a pleasant, subtle nose.
4.5 T: The taste can’t live up to the nose, but that’s okay since it’s still delicious. Caramel and toasted malts, subtle vanilla, and a light metallic lager yeast flavor. Everything is right where it should be.
4.75 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Silky smooth with a pleasant creaminess. Near perfect here.
5.0 D: The best octoberfest beer I’ve had this season. It may not have bold flavors or a ton of complexity, but it’s so subtly well done, that it’s a near perfect beer.

Alcohol taste and smell with this beer. Kind of bready with alcohol lingering within the taste. Sits ok on the palate. Not what I would call a oktoberfest beer,very poor example. TattooJack (518) - Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Poured from the bottle of a six pack into a pint glass. This beer tastes every bit as strong as it is, nothing is hidden. Some bitter, a lot of sweet, and big alcohol content. I’m always looking for beer which is strong and doesn’t taste like dog sh*t, It’s too bad I’ll have to wait till next year for this one to come around again.

A nice Marxen aroma on inital pour and initial taste doesn’t disappoint with characteristic Oktoberfest flavor. However finish is a bit unbalanced as oak aging over powers the palate and get more of a creamy tanin finish than is enjoyable coachd (837) - Missouri, USA - NOV 20, 2016
Malty typical oktoberfest aroma with just a hint of oak. Very pretty amber color with a trace of a white head. The oak comes through more so in the taste and it is a welcome addition. It adds just the right amount of bite to a style that can sometimes come off a bit bland. The palate is superb - silky with more carbonation than most oktoberfest beers I have tried. Very drinkable for the ABV. This is a good offering from 2 Brothers, a brewery that everyone needs to check out. nuplastikk (6289) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 19, 2011
On tap at Revolution. Orange-brown color. Thin, steady head. Malty and rich. Very well done, manages to "imperialize" the style with getting sloppy or going overboard. Smooth caramel and doughy malt tones. Minimal to no hop tones. A great beer. b3shine (8875) - Indiana, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Draft to pint. Looks good; a fairly transparent copper with thin white lacing. Smells solid; semi-sweet and malty. Tastes like it smells, only better. And that oak really adds to the complexity of the beer. Good on the palate too. Nice! Maybe the best Oktoberfest I’ve ever had (even if it isn’t from Germany). whiskeyrocks (90) - Lindenhurst, Illinois, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Wow... maybe im just bias but does Two Brothers make any bad brews. This one did not disappoint. Almost clear copper color with a 1/2 inch head. It has a mix of a sweet and sour smell. But the taste is the kicker. No caramel flavor or sweet sugary taste like some Oktoberfest, but it still has a strong Marzen flavor. This is a nice fall treat and the 7.7% abv is enough to warm you up on the chilly fall nights.... Booyaa
