500ml bottle. Pours a orangeish hue, with a powerful frothy head that dies down after a few minutes. The taste is smooth and easy; a soft malty sweetness, some bitterness and floral hops, and some spice. A good drink. Easy and tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. ’tis the season! Poured a clear, brilliant lighter orange with a nice cap of rocky white head. The aroma had a soft floral dusting over a a toasty caramel base.. some dry leafy accents and faint peppery notes round it out. The flavor stayed the course with a sweet, toasty caramel core with floral notes, light fruit, and dried leaves providing a mild and complimentary bitterness. Light-medium bodied and really fills out over the middle.. sweet toasty finish was very nice. This was a very well-crafted beer!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a nice oktoberfest but i’ve had 5 others this week and this was the most bitter and least sweet, i like a sweeter marzen..anyway, this is medium copper(red too) colour with impress head, adequate lacing..like i said, at tad on the bitter side, but still some good flavours in the beer..an good subtle beer i could see myself drinking allday, but needs to be sweeter, or on draft..

Pours a clear bronze golden with a large white head. Bottle actually foamed over when I opened it. Good sweet malty aroma with a touch of smoke. Nice full body delivers a good malty sweetness throughout and some graininess. Finishes crisp, lightly bitter and dry. A very nice Oktoberfest.

Shared bottle to snifter (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks good; a transparent light-orange with thin white lacing. Smells solid; malty, golly, and pleasantly skunky. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A great example of the style.
