Poured from 12oz bottle into glass.
Amber body, not completely clear, persistent slightly off white cap.
Rich aroma of caramel malt and spices.
Taste of malt, caramel and spice.
A thicker mouthfeel.
A very enjoyable Marzen style beer. Perfect for the fall festivals.

Had several of these on draft at the Capital Brewery and it was delicious! One of the smoothest and most drinkable Octoberfest beers I have ever drank! Classic amber look with just the right amount of spice, with a smooth mouth feel and finish. Great offering too bad can't get it here in Virginia

Strong, spicy sweet bread aroma. Clear to slightly hazy amber, moderately carbonated, tall, thick, creamy off-white head. Smooth and creamy feel. Spice and bread in the initial taste, caramel that is slightly sweet. Moderately bitter in the middle and finish. Finish is a bit sticky. A very nicely done American Märzen.

There are a few good reasons to like Capital. (Brewers that stick to their knitting eventually produce classic-quality stuff.) This O-fest is one more good reason.

Amber. Mostly malts well-roasted give a pleasant nose. Sweet in the taste with just enough hops so as to prevent too sweet and to allow a clean finish. Fewer bubbles than the typical American O-fest helps Capital's cause.

Not as described on lable nor by other reviewers here. Colour is very dark, had very high white frothy head, zero aroma & completely flavourless. Very fizzy & burning sensation on the tongue & throat.
