Bottle, Pours out a orangish copper color, with light head, quickly dissapering. Incredibly smooth, maybe too smooth, like a wated down macrobrewery. Just another beer. Cybercat (5740) - Georgia, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Beautiful clear brownish-golden, with a medium off-white head. Aroma is mainly malty with spice hints, mainly cloves. Flavor is rich, malty, spicy (again cloves), with some hop bitterness. Zingy, tingly, the hop component dances on the tongue. Prosit! SHANER4 (500) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Poured orangish copper color with little head that faded to nothing. Had a light malt aroma with average oktoberfest taste. I can’t get onboard with these oktoberfest beers. They all taste to similar and watered down. This version is no different and is quite tasteless. NOT IMPRESSED oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2007
Bottled (thanks drewbeerme!). Amber colour, beige small head. Aroma is malts, hops, some yeast and vegetables. Flavour is malts, hops, some vegetables and a bit earthyness. Clean for it’s style, but otherwise not so exciting. TBone (17439) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2007

Clear amber color, small off-white head. Bready, hoppy, light aroma. A bit sweetish, some late bitterness. Nicely balanced, good sweetish malty profile. I like it, stylish.
IM not a big fan of oktoberfests at all, but even for that, this wasnt very good, victory has so many better products than this dmtroyer (431) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2007
12oz. Pretty sad looking pour, nice copper amber hue but a thin head that is gone in 10 seconds. Soft, disappointing carbonation, but a malty body that saves this one from a total loss. Not the worst Maerzen I’ve had, but I would like to see a better pour with more complexity. pforei (338) - USA - OCT 5, 2007
Copper. Good malt bready/caramel aroma with some hops. Taste is moreso malt. Well balanced. mctous (131) - Herndon, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2007
The malt aroma seems authentic enough, but the pour lacks the expected firmness and hop lacing. A clean malt flavor is let down by somewhat harsh hops. Festbier lacks the complexity to compete with the best German Marzens. jeremytoni (3058) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - OCT 4, 2007
From a bottle poured amber with little head. Nice full malty flavor with spice. Good finish.
