22oz bottle via hagen. Pours a clear copper with a small beige head. Nose is all about the malts and a bit biscuity. Taste starts with some sweet toffee, then some almonds, biscuits, cocoa, and more toffee in the finish/aftertaste. Not much in the way of hops but i do get a touch of smoke in the aftertaste. Finish is semi-dry, carbonation is just right for the style. Body is medium. A very nice Octoberfest that is spot-on for the style. baron continues to impress me with their tasty, easy-t-drink beers. WAAAY under-rated.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark amber to light copper color. Moderate beige head. LIghtly sour grain and fruit scents. Not a clean lager nose. LIghtly acid and acetic qualities in the flavors as well. Some decent toasted malt and hearty bread in the flavors. A sour dough quality. Some over ripe strawberries in the finish and into the linger. Not a clean brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Typical marzen coloring and aroma, though a bit more muted than some of the better versions. Decent enough taste and balance, again following the standard marzen.
