I tried this at the Moerlein basement taproom. It poured a clear amber with white head that is not leaving some lace. The scent had some grain notes. The taste was slightly sweet but easy to drink with grain and fall spice hints with slight hop bitterness finish. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its was a decent beer.

Pours a clear caramel copper color with minimal beige head that dissipates into almost nothing.

Kettle caramelization dominates the aroma, with toasted breadcrust at the backbone, and a bit of grainy/corny character at the finish. There's a touch of herbal hop and a hint of citrus.

Flavor has an underlying citrus character throughout, but is primarily toasted bread and caramel malt. There's initially some malty sweetness, with the finish becoming somewhat dry and a little bitter.

Body is moderate, with fairly low carbonation, and a slightly astringent finish.

Overall a decent example of the style. The flavor lacks some of the melanoidin character promised in the aroma. Not on par with some of the classic examples, but very drinkable.

This brew is an almost fiery deep copper. A small tan head makes an effort, getting to almost a finger in height before falling away. A little is left at the edges and some spotting makes it onto the glass.
The smell has all the makings of a Marzen, but it leans light and loses some of its punch. it is nicely malty with a light hops balance, leaning malty as traditional versions do, with bread and caramel and a fruity addition as well.
Give it some time to warm and the flavors come out. It's pretty much the same as with the aroma, but more of the fruitiness, a bit of grains underlying, and slightly more of the hops presence is noticeable.
I give the feel some time, as it starts off a touch over-carbonated. I'll give it that it's crisp. A bit of smoothness does peek through but is pushed back down by the bite. After time, it's still a bit too brisk.

Poured from bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: Deep copper color with a nice head that leaves behind some lacing as it fades.

Smell: Like an Oktoberfest should.Malty, slightly sweet and caramel aromas.

Taste: Tastes as good as it smells, sweet caramel and malts.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and reasonable amount of carbonation.

Overall: Very well done and very enjoyable Oktoberfest. And the lowest priced Oktoberfest I have found. It may not be the equal of Great Lakes or Harpoon Oktoberfest but for the money a darn fine beer. Worth seeking out.

The best beer ever to bear the name of Hudepohl!
