500 mL bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Lager-like aroma of sweet pale malt and faint floral hops. Taste is somewhat sweet with notes of caramel and graham cracker blended with floral and mildly citrusy hops. Not my favorite style but this is the clear winner in its category.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours caramel colored with a white head that lingers. Typical Oktoberfest style beer. One of the best, if not THE best, examples of the style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft: Poured an amber to brown color with a large tan head, Aroma is sweet malt and grain with light hops. Taste was very refreshing with nice maltiness and yet had just enough grain and hops to give it depth. By far my favorite example of this style.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Been on the Marzen train for a bit now. So good when they are well done. This one is top notch. Deep golden pour with a frothy white head. Aroma was full of caramel malts and earthy hops. Super clean nose. Flavors were grainy, earthy malts, bits of caramel and toffee. Light carbonation, slick mouthfeel. This is damn near perfect for the style. This one will keep me on the train for tad longer.
