Decent representation of the style. Hits the right notes for the style; roast, toast, nutty flavors, caramel, etc. Wins some bonus point for drink ability and how sessionable it is. But overall comes off thing and watery with a slight sudsy quality.

Would drink again: Yes
Would buy again: Probably not

This beer has a wonderful color to it. A deep but vibrant copper orange clear body. A 1 finger soapy head with loose bubbles dissapates, leaving streaky, patchy lacing that settles in to a wispy cap.
It smells very delicate but descernable. Toasty, grainy and floral hops.
Light in body and on the palate, this beer tastes of toasted grain, with hints of sweetness from malts and a caramel presence. The hops are floral and earthy. Just enough to cut the delicate malts. A very pleasant dry, grassy finishes up with a bit of malty after taste.
Not the most impressive version of an Oktoberfest but Leinenkugel's makes a very pleasant Marzen that is fun to drink. Extra points for enjoyability and fun.

12 oz bottle. Pours a copper orange with a small white head, caramel and malt taste with a little hop bitterness. A little thin and overall not a great Oktoberfest style beer.

Someone suggested to me that this year's Leinenkugel Oktoberfest was pretty good and better than previous years, so I tried and I think I agree.

Look: reddish copper brown with a thick white head

Aroma: toast and caramel

Taste: Toast, sweet caramel, a little bit of spicy/grassy hops, not watery, nice flavor.

Feel: light to medium body
