/Bought as a single bottle from Beers of the World on 9/20/14. Served at fridge temp in a dimpled mug.

Orange amber with a natural white head. Minimal lacing.Aroma is toasted, nearly roasted caramel malt with a faint whiff of hops. A touch of caramel sweetness kisses a nice dry, clean finish. Mouthfeel is good. This is a tasty, good, American style Marzen.

Leinenkugel's Oktoberfest - Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this brew's got a two finger thick white finely pored head,quality lacing, and a clear, caramel amber body

Smells like roasted malts along with other assorted grains. I can't detect any hop bitterness here.

I taste slightly sweet roasted malt characteristics,and perhaps a microdash of caramel.

Mouthfeel is very light and crisp. I actually wish this brew were just slightly more full-bodied. Oktoberfest brews, in my own personal opinion, ought to have a touch of heartiness about them

Overall a 3 for Leinenkugel's Oktoberfest - Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company. I probably won't get this brew again.

Leinenkugel's Oktoberfest brewed by Jacob LeinenKugel Brewing with an ABV of 5.10% This brew pours out a nice light brown color with a small white head. The smell is rich with flavor and grains. Nothing special so far. Now for the taste it is smooth with some burnt grains. Oktoberfest has a nice balance to it. There is nothing overpowering in this brew. Leinenkugel's did a nice job with this one. The mouthfeel is nice and clean. Overall I'm giving this brew a 4 out 5. I would buy this brew again.

This may be last year's brew. Yeah, Nov 2013. Hope the formula hasnt changed so this is accurate.

I love spending time with my friend Tony. He's always got some good brews each time I come to his house, not to mention his kegerator.

Serving style : 12 oz bottle poured into pilsner glass

Appearance (3.5) : Nice four finger carbonated off-white head that recedes quickly. Bubbles line the glass and the body is a transparent festive orange-copper glow. Licks of lacing here and there line the glass.

Smell (4) : Pumpkin spice, nutmeg, honey, hint of ginger, cinnamon, clean water. Pumpkin flesh. A very fresh smelling Marzen. I like it.

Taste (3.25) : some maple syrup, pumpkin, ginger, orange peel, festive spice. What follows is a malt liquor taste that's hard to get rid of. Very distracting. The flavors are right though, and it's easy drinking despite the malt liquor finish.

Mouthfeel (3) : Slippery, wet, flat. A little carbonation but hits the palate like a day old soda. Ends slightly crispy.

Overall (3.17) : it's a toss up if I'd ever buy a six pack of this beer. I don't think it's bad, but it's not very good. There are better Marzens out there, friends, but this is still worth a try.
