3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Amber pour with a thin beige head. Not much to the aroma; a little sweet and malty. Florals show up a little bit in the taste, but caramel malt and an herbal note are the forefront. A little bready too. Overall refreshing and paried well with the general’s chicken.

I had this lager right in Missoula, MT. I was traveling with a friend going to West Yellowstone, MT and we stopped by Missoula to eat lunch so we found Fuddruckers in town and I had a Buffalo burger with the Oktoberfest Lager from the local brewery, Bayern.
I really liked it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint on tap at the brewery pours a deep amber color with a small white head that leaves very little lacing behind. Aroma is mild with caramel and grass. Taste is a chocolate and caramel malty sweetness with some mild grassy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with light carbonation. A decent brew for the style but there are certainly better ones out there.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Had this from a bottle recently. Pours a dark cola color, darker than any oktoberfest i’ve ever had before. Not much head. Smell is bready and caramelly. Taste is much the same but kindof too much sweetness in there. I’d say this is more of a full bodied Oktoberfest, flat on the carbonation. I expected a lot more out of this beer, wouldn’t get it again probably.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not typical märzen, more brown, malty aroma and flavor, and the hops, alcohol level and sweetness were really balanced. Worth try.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to swalden28. Poured deep amber/brown with an off white head. Aroma was raisin, brown sugar, caramel, and earthy notes. Flavor was pretty much the same with a medium body and low carbonation. Odd o fest.

Bottle. Pours brown with red hues and tan head. Aroma has a nice dark roasted maltiness with notes of nut and very doughy/bready. Flavor is much the same with a nice sweet and subtle spicy profile With a touch of dark fruit. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Overall, not the usual Marzen but I enjoyed.
