3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2012 Bottle: Pours a lightly hazed golden-orange with a decent off-white cap. Aroma is bready -. Noble hop woodiness is a prevailing note, a bit of mustiness. Medium bodied - could be a bit more substantial. Flavor follows aroma - bready with a decent whack of Perle bittering and Hersbrucker woodiness, finish goes dry with a decent noble hop bite at the end, a very good Marzen but they need to bulk up the body .

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ah, Octoberfest at the LCBO. To someone like me who doesn’t dig pumpkin beer, stuff like this is a godsend.
Pour is dark golden with reddish hints. A finger of clean white head that hangs around for a bit, but not much in the way of lacing. Nose is bread, caramel, a bit of fresh grass, a dash of spice, and a pinch of funk. Taste is bready malt with lots of spicy Noble hops on the finish, which is short and crisp. Nothing spectacular, but a nice interpretation of the style. Ein prosit

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bière cuivrée / orangée, limpide, peu mousseuse et assez effervescente. Le nez est doux et discret. Un peu de houblons floraux se distinguent, sans plus. En bouche, la bière est mince, le pétillement est modéré et les saveurs voguent principalement autour de l’amertume. Cette amertume se poursuit en arrière-goût quelques secondes avant d’offrir une certaine âcreté de pamplemouse pour clore le débat. C’est intéressant, c’est bien fait, mais ce n’est pas quelque chose que j’achèterais à la caisse...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
625 mL Bottle. Gold-amber body with a 2-finger frothy white head settling to a clingy film. Aroma of pale sweet malts, cotton candy, butterscotch, and astringent earthy hops. Flavor of pale sweet malts with notes of pear, astringent hops come through in the aftertaste. Astringent hops taper off to a clean finish. Yeah, I’m game for another.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear coppery colour. Has a blue cheese aroma that I typically enjoy but not this time. Some pilsner (saccharomyces pastorianus) yeasty-ness about that just sucks. It proves better on the palate but honestly, i can’t drink more than one of these beers per year. i’m good and I will seek out something with more flavour thanks.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Deep orange amber with a tiny white head that is quickly gone. Nose is primarily toffee with some cereal and light citrus and grass. Light sweet toffee with a light bitter middle to balance. Finish is short and crisp. Mouth is medium light with soft carbonation. Decent enough for the style.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Pours a golden amber colour with almost a finger of white head that quickly dissipates.
Aroma: Malt, caramel, bread, yeast, bit of spice but I can’t place it.
Flavour: Malt, caramel, biscuit, bit of pepper.
Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation.
Overall: A great Marzen which I look forward to each year. I found the aroma a bit more subdued than in previous years but it still has that nice rich malt smell.
