Dark honey brown, good cloudy head. Aroma is crisp, lemon and berries. Malty with grassy hops. Pleasant mouthfeel. Really good beer for celebration of Oktoberfest.(5/4/7/4/14 3.4)
Copper brown, small steady white head, lots of lace. Floral hoppy nose. Dry, chalky, hoppy flavor with typical märzen notes. Dry long aftertaste. One of the best of this style. (6/4/7/4/14 3.5)

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml. bottle. Nice bready aroma accompanied by floral hop. Amber color with a frothy off-white head. Medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Flavors of caramel, bread and flowers/herbs. Very smooth. Slightly caramel sweet. This carries into the finish, but there are floral hop notes to help balance that. Something of floral, herbal tastes at the end of the finish. It is really very tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big beige head atop clear light copper body. Aroma is unusual (which, in an Oktoberfest, is extraordinary) -- mildly sweet, malty, bready. Taste is medium sweet, malty, caramel, toasty. Clean, light-medium body. Pleasant beer, not at all what you generally find in the run-of-the-mill oktoberfest available in the States.
