If I tasted this blind, I would have guessed it was from Germany. Many of the US based Marzens seem to have too much bitter caramel to them. This has a good balance. My favorite thus far this October.

Dark anber witb a decent, fading head. Lightly fruity smell, which pairs well with tbe brew's nedium bodied, floral malt flavor. It has a touch of the roasted, biscuit flavor I expect from an Oktoberfest beer, but really it reminds me of a toasted Kolsch. A surprising flavor that pushes to the front, is a fragrant vanilla note. Interesting brew. As a Marzen, hmmm, but as a beer, quite interesting.

Karbachtoberfest has a thick, frothy, ivory head of foam, which dies away, quickly, a clear, gold-orange-amber appearance, and minimal glass lacing. Aroma is of spicy, brown bread crust, and the flavor is of spicy & sweet brown bread, with some underlying touch of syrup and a dash of lemon. Mouthfeel is medium, and Karbachtoberfest finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT

Somewhat pale reddish amber with a medium off-white head. Good flavor, mostly well balanced but very slightly on the bitter side. A little more carbonation than some other Okterberfest beers. Light to medium bodied. Good, but not my favorite.

Poured from tap into shaker(at brewery) 1 finger head recedes pretty quick. Clear orangish amber in the glass, crystal clear. Smells of malt, biscuit, and caramel. Taste caramel sweetness on the front, mild and smooth to the end. Nice beer, drank a 12 pack of this a couple of weekends ago at a wedding, 8 hr puppy, didn't think I would ever drink it again
