This beer is a nice amber color and has a nice fat head that leaves lots of sticky lace. It has tons of toasty malt aromas and no hops. Not in the aroma anyway... The taste is heavy on the malt, but with maybe a tad bit too much hops in the finish. Not the best marzen/octoberfest that I have tried, but it is decent and I buy it when it is available.

Deep ruby color with a white head. Smells like Munich malt (not surprisingly). Sweet taste and a thicker mouthfeel make it stand out compared to the Spaten Oktoberfest I had just before it. More hop bitterness is present in it compared to its European predecessor as well. It's also more carbonated. Pretty decent beer that's on tap in a lot of places.
