wxman (1769) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Pours a deep golden color with, like their premium beer, a thick white head that doesn’t stick around. Aroma is sweet malt and not much else. Taste is sweet malt and caramel with some faint hop bitterness. Refreshing and unoffensive, but no Oktoberfest characteristics whatsoever. I wish these German pils factories would leave this sort of thing to the Bavarian brewers.

Pretty lousy marzen. Very light color. Light hay aroma and flavor, no richness.

otismulligan (34) - Yardley, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2008
Bottle, poured. Light head, not dark. more of a golden-pumpkin color. light body, lively, thin feel, abrupt finish. Not bad, but not a good octoberfest. More of a basic german lager.

Light in color for an oktoberfest it seems. Drinkable, but bitter. Probably better with food.

SSSteve (4006) - - SEP 6, 2008
pours a clear amber/gold under a large sudsy white head. aroma is lager-like with a sweetened toffee note. malty flavor with the toffee note showing again. not that tasty.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - SEP 4, 2008
Tap @ Tacomac, johnscreek. pours clear, golden color. White head. Aroma of a premium lager. Bread and grassy hops. Flavor of a hugely malted lager. Pale malt and that’s all. If you poured a Bud, Coors, and MGD in one glass, pose it as a Märzen and this is what ya got. Boring, plain, and uninspiring. Don’t waste your time, unless you wanted a cheep rating like I did.

rader58 (882) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Pours a golden color. aroma of grass and bread. flavor is slightly bitter with a sweetness. Not my favorite, but I prefer darker beers.

Odyn (266) - New York, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Not bad, but I am reminded why I am not a big fan of Warsteiner. Tastes basically like a German lager. A little too golden on the color, and is more like a pilsner. Reminds me of Pilsner Urquell.

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 23, 2008
clear golden yellow color, pretty light for a so-called marzen.
aroma of malts and grasses
A little caramelly, malty bite to it like a marzen, but combined with the grassy wheatiness of a pils.

EithCubes (5663) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 18, 2008
Bottle (not exactly fresh, but within a year). Grassy citric aroma, nearly skunked but again, I don’t think it’s an issue of age. Pale malts shining right through. Golden, clear body with minimal carbo and a light cream colored head. Taste is sweet and bready with light floral hops, medium body with lots of lemon. Slightly tart and nicely balanced. Sunny and cheerful. Thumbs up!
