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 .

On tap at the Ottawa Beerfest. The night Marzen is a light caramel pour, earthy malts in the nose. A so so Oktoberfest beer. Medium bodied, earthy, a bit musty & tart.

On the nose I’m not getting much of anything. Maybe a hint of cereal/biscuit. I’m inhaling and inhaling and there is nothing there.
Taste wise, again not much there. A bit of biscuity malts. It is very quaffable in a thirst quenching way, but flavour wise it is sorely lacking. Reminds me of some real old school macro beers.

Bottle. Pours light amber, white head. Nose of sweet crackery malt, floral hops. Taste is toast, bitter for the style, lots of crackery malt.

Bière de couleur ambré-cuivré avec un beau col résistant. Nez de céréales. En bouche c’est une bière plutôt correct pour le style qui ne révolutionne rien. Belle couleur mis a part cela, rien de bien spécial...

bottle. Poured clear orange-amber with a thick foamy off-white head. Vegetal malt aroma. Light-medium body with a crisp, medium dry, tight carbonated mouthfeel. Sweet beer, light citrus notes with a bready malt base and an herbal hop finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
600ml bottle. Pours a clear caramel colour with a frothy, cream coloured, three finger head that leaves some ok lacing.
Aroma his notes of caramel, bread, German hops, and a touch of spice.
Taste is a mildly bitter but balanced well with notes of caramel amd a touch of earthyness on the finish.
Medium body with a low-medium carbonation. Crisp, clean, and refreshing in the mouth.
Overall I enjoyed this. Very characteristic for the style but done well. A bit more bitter than some of the other Octoberfest brews I’ve had but that makes it stand out. Well worth a try and you can’t beat the price. Cheers!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a dimpled mug, a nice head formed. An appealing red, clear. Aroma is a bit weak, nevertheless, I smell some biscuit and caramel, maybe a hint of grass. Taste is real good, direct in flavour, and does not become cloying, an ideal session beer. Sweet, malty, with a medium-bitter finish. A bit thin, carbonation medium-heavy. Overall: a success! An attractive fall/winter choice.

In bottle from LCBO .. not bad but not in line with true German Marzen’s .. much lighter in color and taste. Overall OK, but wouldn’t buy again
