Darwenus (1066) - Virginia, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Yadda yadda yadda. Pale yellow, average head, faint fruity and yeasty esters, a tiny bit of hop tingle on the finish. Also, it annoys me that these German beers are bottled in the metric system and translate to 11.2 ounces instead of the 12 ounces I am used to as a by-God ’Merican. If I’m gonna drink a beer I don’t really enjoy, I want there to be a lot of it.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - OCT 24, 2009
Draught at Mallaskukko. Very pale golden, tight white head leaving dishwashing lace. Pretty sweet nose with little white bread, sawdust, pear and mint. Hints of alchohol in there too, clean and mild. Flavor has mild herbal notes, minerals, clean maltiness, pale and ESL-like. Strong and coarse carbonation, but the reasonably malty body covers some of that. I like ’em more toasty and caramelly, like the Ayinger Fest-Märzen, but this still drinks pretty easy.

WVHouseofBeer (1055) - West Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that leaves no lacing. Sweet malty aromas but they were pretty weak. Basically all-malt flavors of bread and dough. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation and a crisp sweet finish. Overall a pleasant Oktoberfest but rather forgettable.

Sample from bottle at Hy-Vee Oktoberfest. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma was bread, fruit, apple, sweet malts. Taste was bittersweet, malts, grassy, grain.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear pale golden with a large long lasting white head that leaves good lacing. Light aroma of sweet malt, yeast, and light hops. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium thin mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness. Very light but refreshing and good.

rjplumer (1046) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 18, 2011
Has a nice floral aroma. Mild bitterness. Clear deep gold color. Reminds me of a pilsner in a way. A pleasant brew overall. Sweet but dry finish.

tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - SEP 26, 2008
From a brown bottle in Albuquerque, pours a clear gold color with streaming bubbles and a thin white head. Light-to-medium body, Very clean light maltiness. Soft mouthfeel. Slightly dry finish with a touch of hops bitterness. Very "light" for a Märzen but nice.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 26, 2006
Not much to this one. Gold, white head, aroma of grass and malt. Light spice and yeast with the hops to make it even lighter. Still better than a Budweiser, though not by much.
