3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A - Pours a clear golden amber with ruby highlights. 3 fingers of foamy off-white head with rings of lace.
S - Doughy honey yeast with lemon & metallic notes. Funky caramel mixed in with brown sugar as well. Tangy peaches.
T - Bready malted grain blended with a musty yeast. A toasted caramel envelopes mild earthy lemon-citrus hops. Faint cinnamon spice. Aftertaste is of soft spiced apples.
M - Medium body with a smooth texture.
An Oktoberfest with great yeast character. Good all around. I wish it was cheaper.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle, pour is amber with a slight head. Aroma of caramel malt, bread, toffee, hard candy, slight citrus. Well balanced, earthy flavor tending toward sweet...rich yet refreshing. Has some fruity, floral, and mineral notes, creamy texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. One of the better versions of this style, similar to a Vienna lager but with more caramel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber color. Caramel and bread. Smooth and really tasty. Probably the best Marzen I’ve had yet. Crisp and refreshing with loads of maltiness and creamy head.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy amber colour with a golden hue. Warm cap, kind of creamy, decent lasting and some good lacing. Bread malt aromas with caramel notes and some sweet fruitiness (dates, mild raisins). Hints of nuttiness. The taste is not as sweet, but still has some fruits, light caramel and hops in the finish. The blend between the hops and malts is quite nice in the aftertaste, which saves the flavours (as a little too mild, but rich with time). Pretty good for the style.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!

Bright amber pour with a massive puffy head. Malty, bready aroma. Bready up front, caramel sweetness, grassy, lighter fruit notes. Medium body. The standard-bearer for Marzen
