Appearance - Pours a dark amber/copper color with a half inch thick head that lingers for a couple minutes. Leaves a very nice lacing.
Smell - Very sweet and malty, with feint hints of caramel and other aromas.
Taste - VERY sweet with caramel and brown sugar being the dominant flavors. It's also very bready. The hops come through stronger in the finish giving it a slightly bitter and floral taste.
Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
Overall - I can honestly say this Oktoberfest is unique compared to all the others I've tried. It's a little too sweet in my opinion, but it's still delicious.

Serving Type - Bottle
Appearance - Dark brown/tan with foamy 1 inch head and lots of lacing.
Smell - Caramel malts, brown sugars, molasses, some malty pale malt like funk. Nut, roasty, and bready.
Taste - Very sweet and malty, with a light hop bite. Very caramely with lots of brown sugars and mollasses. A smoked, nutty flavor also stands out at the finish.
MOuthfeel - The sweetness hits tounge and palate and coats it with brown sugars. The caramel nutty malts stand out also. The finish is sweet and smokey.
OVerall - One of the sweetest octoberfests ive ever had. Its easy to drink but i dont think id want to many of these. Its a little out of balance with the high sweet flavors, the fruits and spices get buried rather easy. Its worth a try but not a great example for what a marzen can be.

12 oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.
Light amber with 1 finger of head that fizzles out quickly. Excellent clarity with soda-like carbonation.
Bread, caramel, toffee, and candy sugar.
Malty niceness. Bready malts, caramel, candy sugar and a touch of toffee. Light kiss of earthy hop bitterness.
Medium bodied, smooth, crisp, and clean.
A decent Oktoberfest that doesn't necessarily stand out among the crowd.

Pours a deep copper colored body with a nice two finger head. Light scents of whiskey, and a caramel biscuit. Solid malty goodness hits the palate with just enough hops to balance out the sweetness. Bursts of top notch crispy, caramel goodness. Very drinkable. Medium bodied but a heavy Oktoberfest than most versions today. True to the style. Deep and pretty rich. Great with spare ribs or barbequed anything. Nice and creamy and very smooth. It's a good one.
