Nice strong nose and flavor, especially for a lager. Exactly what I think of when I imagine a German Oktoberfest beer. Clean dry finish with some great hops that hang on for a few extra seconds. It's honestly more of a true Marzen than a Festbier.

This is a terrific beer. I had it on tap at the brewery, served in a dimpled mug.

it is a deep amber/orange color with a tall off white head. The beer has quite a big aroma of bread and caramel; very little on the hop, just the faintest floral hop presence. The flavor is big and bold, lots of bread/biscuit and caramel as hinted at in the aroma. There is just a bit of hop bitterness that helps offset the moderately sweet maltiness. This is a very balanced beer all the way around. The beer is medium bodied with an average amount of carbonation. Supremely easy to drink.

I think this may be one of OMB's best beers; it stand out head and shoulders above most other domestic attempts at the style. This beer is much more akin to its German counterparts, without suffering the ill effects of the journey from there to here.

A mild beer with enough flavor to enjoy but not heavy. A drink all day beer. Drank at the brewery...a must see venue.

A: The beer is a little hazy yellow in color and has some orange hues along with a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a short white head that died down, leaving some lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of toasted malts are present in the nose along with some hints of bready malts and noble hops.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is quite malty and has lots of flavors of toasted malts along with subtle hints of sweetness. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is an excellent American representation of a German style. I liked how it was nice and malty but there was a good amount of underlying hops to balance off just about all of the sweetness.
