12oz bottle. Pours a fading, lacing light tan head with a murky amber brown body. Smells of apples, caramel, honey, toffee. Tastes like a caramel apple. A little bready on the finish.

Really thin-bodied, bland with some mild sweetness. Not much going on here.

This is honestly my favorite Oktoberfest beer. I’m not a marzen fan, but this was is good. Great toasty malt feel on the tongue, with a satisfying finish.

Amber pour with a thin off-white head. Malty grain aroma. Flavor is pure sweet malt with little discernible hops. Not a bad marzen.

Draft. Brown color with spicy cinnamon,nutmeg,and peper taste. Body was smooth with earthy, watery finish. Had potential but so do alot of their beers.

Poured a reddish color that had very little head. Sweet caramel taste, not much balance, no lacing on the glass. On style for a marzen, little hop taste to it. The beer was smooth, drinkable. Nothing great about this beer, but not all bad. Not one to go out of your way for, but drinkable. Thanks D!

Orange colored brew with bright white head. Kinda weak aroma... a little sweet. Doesn't taste too bad. Some toasted malt taste and maybe a hop but that's it. Alright O-fest.

Red with thin white head. Stuffy nose prevents quality analysis of aroma. Caramel sweetness, decent hoppiness.

I know it’s far from fall but I couldn’t help grab this. Bomber into snifter glass, clear deep rusty-amber with light tan head. Aroma of toast, brown sugar and faint earthy hops. Taste adds roast malt sweetness, caramel, nuttiness, light cocoa and fruity hop bitterness. Light-medium body, low-moderate carbonation, soft with roasty sweet finish. Pretty straight forward marzen.

a pretty amber color with a creamy tan head on the pour, and a hoppy aroma that was more or less on its own. the taste was similar, a ton of hops and not nearly enough malts and if there were any spices, i didnt taste them. a bitter and oily aftertaste ended what was nothing close to what i expect from an octoberfest lager.
