I really enjoyed the head and the caramel flavoring of this Oktoberfest beers. I only had it on tap in a great SA glass (perfect shape) to capture the head and flavor. Very smooth. My favorite time of year for drinking beers. This one is one of my higher ratings.

This is my favorite beer. Malty, slight sweet, caramel taste, no hop bitterness, and very smooth finish. It is a crime that this beer is only available 2-3 months out of the year.

Poured from bottle into pint glass. Poured a nice, clear, dark caramel color with nice cream colored head. Sweet malts and caramel on the nose. Expected sweet, malty flavor in the taste. One of my favorite Marzen style brews that I finally got a wild hair to review and always a refreshing treat to start the fall. Was thrilled to find one left over in the rear of the beer fridge.
