In my opinion they nailed the color, body, and most of the flavors. Okto has all the subtle mineral, carmel, roast, and herbal qualities you look for in this style. The main thing that Im missing is in the finish. I really wish they would have lagered this beer but still, a decent session ale. CarlJonas (392) - Linköping, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2013
Amber color, white head. The aroma is dominated by nougat with hints of boiled vegetables. The taste is sweet and nutty with a growing bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Decent, but the taste almost felt more brown ale than märzen to me. RexTalionis (3825) - FINLAND - SEP 27, 2013
Bottled. Pours amber in color with a small off-white head. Bready malty and nuttyness in aroma. A bit bland, but some burnt malts and nuttyness is present in taste. jookos (7159) - FINLAND - SEP 27, 2013
Bottle. Amber colour, filtered clear. Malty, slight murky, nose. Somewhat clean lagery, but strange. I was expecting a lagered beer, but I’m not really sure about this one. Seems too wild. And too much of greeny hops popping up to be really fest-like, to be drunk in masses. A bottle of this is fine, but liters wouldn’t do. Not sure what style this tries to be, but fails horribly.

355 ml bottle @ Hotel room, Oslo.b3shine (9260) - Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Pours clear copper color with a large head. Aroma of ay, caramel malts and some faint hops. Flavour of hay, pale malts, toffee and fruits. Sweet and sticky, buttery also.
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent copperish orange with foamy off-white head that dissipates steadily. Smells of malt and dough. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not bad. Frahmo (320) - Idaho, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle from Brewforia. Pretty average taste, poured a clear golden with a thin white head. boozedude (2229) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - OCT 15, 2013
