[2097-20090419] 12floz bottle. Vegetable grains aroma. Slightly hazy, golden amber body with quick creamy off-white bubbles. Grainy vegetable flavour has toasted malt. Medium body. Average. blipp (9794) - La Mesa, California, USA - DEC 6, 2007

Color is amber with a thin and quickly vanishing off white head. Aroma is very light, some caramel, maybe nutty malts, and a little bit of spice. Palate: very easy to drink but maybe a little to watery and carbonated. Flavor is very similar to the aroma, malt and light spice, nothing that leaves much of an impression. Overall this is not a very complex beer. However, is is very easy drinking and pretty cheap, so I’ll probably end up getting it again. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2011

Pours orange-red with white head, aroma has notes of nuts, caramel, and some earth. Taste is a bit weak and muddled, but has notes of nuts and earth, slight spice. Not bad, just not my style. DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2012
12oz bottle. Best by: 12/3/12. Good, crisp lighter carbonation. More dry texture. Medium to lighter body. Toasty and caramel malt aroma. Some spicy, earthy hops. Good moderate bitter taste. Clear slightly darker amber color. Minimal off-white head. Maybe a dot of lace. Good sweetness, maltiness. Hint of clove. One of the better oktoberfests, and of course, great to enjoy with a sandwich JoeMcPhee (9598) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2006
12 oz bottle. Deep orange colour, crystal clear with no head at all. Lovely deep rich maltiness. Munich malt and some decocted malitness are on display. Flavour shows a kiss of floral hops, lingering light breadiness. Not a lot of complexity, but this is all about being easy to drink… something it accomplishes well.

Good for what it is. Would be easy to drink in a stein, but then again I’ve had better marzens. Tasted this at a Giant and didn’t opt for a growler. 3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 27, 2007
Clear copper colored body with almost no head formation at all. Smells of sticky, sweet maple and sweet white corn, with a heavily sweet caramel and caramel corn note as well. Some faint cherry wood also shows up at times. Low carbonation, slick and oily, with flavors of semi-sweet maple malt and light plum and cedar. Medium dryness in the finish. Ok to below average. b3shine (9208) - Indiana, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a transparent deep gold with white lacing. Smells of malt and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. A decent example of the style. drowland (9175) - Georgia, USA - SEP 9, 2010
9/3/10. On tap in a pint glass. Plain, grainy aroma with a grainy, almost chocolatey flavor. Not bad. Ibrew2or3 (8860) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2008
Courtesy of Sea Bass. Pours clear copper with gold edges and thin off white head. The aroma is sweet lager type malts, rich Munich grainy malts, moderate roasted malts and corn. The taste is rich maltiness with Munich malts, caramel, caraMunich, biscuit and some nuttiness. Wow, great malty brew.
