3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light color for the style with a nice retaining head. Aroma and taste of malt and crackers, less sweet and caramelly than others. Hints of roasted malts.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slighty hazy orange/golden hue with a massive creamy off-white head which did settle down some and developed a good lace. Earthy and dusty aroma with additional hints of sourdough bread, aromatic hops, and light spice. Very nice smooth malty taste with just enough hop character to keep from becoming boring. A minor citric zing and light bitterness on finish. Chalky feel in this medium-bodied brew. Above average festbier, again another winner from my favorite German brewery.

"well balanced between the different malts, and a very light hop profile, only descernable in the finish. an ok style, this one stands out a little. definitely recommended if you like the style."

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..

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle at home from notes 2011. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor were malt forward with doughy bread, caramel, some fruitiness, mild floral character with a dry lightly toasted finish. Solid Oktoberfest.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Surprisingly light orangish hue for an Ofest, with a super head. Pungent sweet caramel aroma. Alcohol-malt on the tongue, but it mellows well after the first gulp. Man, I want a bratwurst now.

The beer pours an orange-amber color with a large white head. The aroma is heavy on the nutty and toffee malts with a little bit of grass thrown in from the hops. The flavor is is full of toffee, caramel and biscuit malts. There are some nice floral hop notes in the flavor as well which really add to the flavor profile. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very easy to drink and one of the best German-brewed märzens out there.

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.
