3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance was clear deep gold with diminishing white creamy bubblely 1 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are simple pils sweet malts with hints of spicey hops, standard for style. Taste are different than nose with light sweet malt backbone, then the balance of the spicey,herbal noble hops. Palate was smooth creamy CO2 wih medium body, then the balance smooth average length easy drinking finish. One of he best marzans for a reason, try it.

Bottle. Pours an orange brown color with a small white head. Nose is strong malt and caramel. Taste is grainy and woody. Finish is malty as well and moderately long. At heart an ’ ale ’ lover, so will rate it as such. Quaff Score 6 / 10

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours an amber orange with a beige head and aroma of malty aroma of caramel and bread. Taste is of sweet malt, caramel, bread notes, and grains with a crisp, caramel, malt finish. Drinkable, but not my favorite style

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
500 ml bottle. Pours a golden orange, perfect Oktoberfest color with a moderate off-white head. Aroma is Munich malts and German hops. Taste follows the nose. This is a light, easy to drink beer. It’s not the most interesting Oktoberfest I’ve tried, but it is the most well-crafted and probably the best overall. I like it.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very average Oktoberfest. Sweet slight thick. Malt thickness. Nice basic Octoberfest but not what you want a lot of

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
One of the top rated Oktoberfest beers for good reason. Not overly sweet or overly bitter. Perfectly balanced. Great mouthfeel very clean and refreshing but still full bodied. Lingers on the palate. Fantastic beer!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoyed at Brauerei Aying in München, DE during Oktoberfest, perfect time to have this! Appearance is a clearish gold with a thin frothy white head. Aroma smells good but I have a cold, which is rough, but I’m getting mostly lager yeast with a touch of malt. Taste is very good, goes down with light bitterness, not too malty honestly. Great one to enjoy during my trip here!

Very nice. Biscuity and full flavor but with enough bitterness to keep it from being too sweet. Compared to the standard fare marzens that every US brewery feels compelled to make, this one is excellent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle into mug. Clear, clean burnt orange pour with a thick one finger off white head that stays fairly well. Very smooth going down, hints of caramel. For its style, it has more flavor than most. However, in the grand scheme of beer-things, that still doesn’t make up for what it lacks in richness and depth. Again, however, it is also supremely drinkable and does not bore me sip after sip. Maybe most importantly, though, it makes me feel at home and welcomed and generally how I should during the Oktoberfest season.
