Poured into a Hoegaarden glass. Got this from a friend who was offloading his beer from his fridge.

Pours clean with about a half finger of head and looks the part of a Marzen certainly.

Tastes grainy and boring with no sweet or spice flavors. Actually smells better than it tastes as I get a hint more of the spices.

Feels watery on the mouthfeel and doesn't leave any lingering sweetness like better examples of the style do.

Overall pretty shite, definitely not worth picking up. Support another brewery if you want a good Marzen this is all talk and no delivery.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Crystal clear ruby tan color, little creamy head decent messy lacing.

Nose macro lager, sweet caramel, minerals, reddish malt, mild unhappy lager.

Taste big macro lager flavor, unhappy lager yeast, minerals, faint skunky like quality, big sweet caramel malts, bitter hop note but a bad bitterness somehow. Quite fruity too.

Mouth med to lighter bod, decent carb

Leinenkugel's Oktoberfest is a decent marzen-style beer. It has a bit of a watery taste, but it doesn't water down the flavor of the beer all the way.

Appearance - pours to a clear amber color

Overall - This is an average Oktoberfest. It is lighter than some Oktoberfests. This is a good beer to ease into an Oktoberfest but others are better. Needs more flavor.
