3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Makes for a great all-day consumption brew for the start of football season, grilling/smoking meats all day, firing up the chiminea, raking leaves, welcoming the return of the best season of the year—autumn. Very chuggable with an ABV that should keep you out of trouble with the wife and awake for the 4th quarter of the 5pm game.

Hands down the best widely available Oktoberfest. It has a typical flavor profile of an Oktoberfest while being more drinkable, more flavorful, and smoother than the Paulaner or the Hacker.

I am going to pass on the mouth feel, aroma, starts with this ends with that nonsense with this one. This is the best marzen I have ever consumed. Spaten and Paulaner are still world class, but this is the best!

Bottle from the LCBO. Copper-amber with a healthy white head. Aroma of bread crust, sugar cookie, cut grass and orange blossom. Beautifully balanced flavors of toasted cereal, toffee, candied orange & lemon peel, and a hint of rosemary. Floral hops in the dry finish. An excellent example of the style.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sehr milder Malzantrunk, in dem karamellige Noten kaum zum Vorschein kommen. Spät einen Ticken malziger, leicht süß, weiterhin kaum würzig. Im Nachhall noch einmal würziger, dennoch insgesamt entäuschend. 8/8/8/6/8/6
