4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
50cL bottle. Delicious aroma, just like a bakery or something, super-malty. Fantastic palate, very very developed and benign. Taste is not perfect, but very very good and enjoyable for the style. It’s hard for me to offer specific critiques, I think they’re not likely to take my advice after making this beer for god-knows-how-long. It’s very, very decent.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark malt, and a good example of the Oktoberfest style. Honey colored, thin head and lace. Some citrus....

Dark malt dominates, pours amber with medium creamy white head. Light malt aroma with stronger malt taste. Slightly smoky palate with abrupt finish. One of the better festbiers, as expected.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I’m a huge Ayinger fan, and this beer should define the style in my opinion. Toasted malt with a nice bready touch but easy to drink and ends a bit sweet. I’m not huge on the October style, but it is hard to not love this beer.

A light aroma and deep amber color raised my hopes for this one. Almost no bubbles and a distinctly nutty flavor made me appreciate these Bay Area summer (autumn) nights. It was just what I needed.

Pour from bottle. Average head with larger bubbles subsides quickly to a speckled film. Aroma is subtle bready malt, and maybe a hint of citrus from the hops. The full body and balanced profile makes for a very pleasing flavor and mouthfeel when quaffed.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a medium amber, white head okay retention, solid lacing. Nose is malty with some candied orange. Mouth is medium bodied and malty, lots of caramel (think caramel kettle corn... or the original Poppycock or Fiddle Faddle). Malt forward (did I already mention the maltiness?), some orangey notes as well. Finishes weak which is why I took off a few points, but overall an excellent Märzen. Prost, mein freunden!

Yes this beer is delicious. BUT I’m not all about it like some folks. Could be the style doesn’t appeal to me like it once did. Sweet malts on the aroma, bright and clean carbonation on the palate. Would be easy to drink this by the litre in an enormous stein.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle on the balcony. Aroma is malty, toasty. Sweet malt up front, noble hops on the crisp finish. Very simple flavor profile, but perfectly balanced and true to style. A great authentic Oktoberfest.
