    Strong, malty aroma has spicy and hoppy undertones. Pours a clear amber with an average pale cream head. Malty flavor has subtle notes of apple, pear and cloves and a hint of caramel. Smooth texture has typical body and average fizz.

    Nice amber pour with a medium sized white head. Nice malt aroma with a bit of the hop presence at the end. Flavor is slightly malty with a nice hop finish. Not as flavorful as some Octoberfests out there but it can get the job done.

    Been wanting to try this for 6+ years, due to talk on BP back in the day .. . Pours a deep honey orange .. . light head, medium to strong thin lines of lacing, the whites!! .. . light caramel, melted sugar, and boot .. . pretty good but for me, a bit weak .. . . It's natural to feel that way. But the sprinkler is gone, it's time to let go.

    I pours a bright burnt-orange with a thick white head and a ring of lacing surrounding. An aroma of caramel malts, oranges and citrus, honey, light bitterness, and mild spiciness. The mouthfeel is smooth, thick, and rich. Flavors of caramel malts, hops, orange and citrus, honey, bitterness, and spiciness. Very good and flavorful!

    Sampled at GABF on 9/16/2010. This oktoberfest marzen pours a light gold color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel, bready and semi-sweet. A medium bodied marzen. The malts are caramel and bready, semi-sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy, Nice semi-sweet marzen. Nice balance. Good carbonation. Nice representation of the style. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

    Nice clear amber pour with a decent white head and nice lacing. Slightly sweet malty aroma with some hops. Taste is smooth with a malty base and hint of hops bitterness. Very nice brew - another one checked off the wish list.

    I guess it is Oktoberfest season isn't it. A great thing with just a little hint of sadness knowing that the cold is soon to follow. Pours a hazey copper colour. Decent sized vanilla coloured head. Rich, flavourful with some molasses, biscuit malts and cinnamon. Aroma is nutty with some fruit as well. Nice brew :)

    Another great example of hour The american versions of these beers are better than their counter parts across the pond. Malty and Sweet this is very easy and nice beer.

    Bottle from theisti, poured with an orange color, nice initial off-white colored head, good lacing all the way down. The aroma was grassy caramel. The flavor featured strong toasted caramel notes and a bitter grassy hop finish. Full bodied, moderately carbonated, a hearty ofest brew. Thanks for this one, Tim!

    This poured a murky orange color with a small head. The aroma is malty and contains some oranges, caramel, and berries. The flavor is very straight forward with some citrus, caramel, and a hint of raspberry iced tea. This one has a slight bitter presence to it instead of being the usual malty oktoberfest. Overall a nice session beer.
