Very typical marzen-style oktoberfest, quite drinkable but nothing to make it stand out.

This is, I think, the best Octoberfest that I have tried. Very malty with a medium body.

Thanks, Mike and Abbie! Nicely lustrous amber pour, with a vigorous and quite fresh-looking head. Liquid bread. Mild spice and pert fruit in the nose along with the more expected chewy notes. And for a marzen, this is certainly among the more vibrant entries you could hope to find. Modest hops, a smidge of spice, leading to a well balanced brew. This is one I’d actually look forward to having again, stylistic disinterest notwithstanding.

Orange/gold with a fluffy white head that fades quickly but leaves nice lacing. Flavor and aroma both have tons of caramel, biscuit, and candi sugar. A touch of spice in the finish. Good.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Serving: from tap at Doyle’s Public House.
Aroma: lightly malty.
Appearance: large, frothy, off-white, initial head with no lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Hazy, flat, medium-yellow body.
Taste: moderately malty, initial flavor and heavily sweet finish with average duration.
Palate: light-to-medium body, oily texture and soft carbonation.
Overall: too sweet for me. I wouldn’t drink this again.

Caramel, fairly light. Think these are boring just like American ambers. This one is pretty good for style. Has a semi lasting body.
