3.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bottle, nice, dark amber, with large, creamy head.
Smell didn’t impress me, reminded me of horse feed..weird, but, thats what I picked up!
Taste was nice, nutty, dark fruits, and bready. Finished with a bit of numbness on my tounge.
Very good Octoberfest beer. I enjoyed it more after every sip, but, the smell still messed with me.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a clear burnt orange appearance with a thin cream colored head. Some caramel and nutty notes in the aroma. Some metallic and corn notes in the aroma as well. Fairly sweet, mild floral hop bitterness. A bit husky. Finishes with another touch of metal. Very poor example of a Märzen.

I expected much more, and I don’t know why. Maybe I’ll buy a couple to make some batter for onion rings... not to drink straight out of the bottle

Thought I was getting a German import but after tasting it, checked the bottle and see it was brewed in USA. Not the same. Pass on this. Just pass.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rated on 8-25-2009 (Best Before 06.2010 Bottle) This beer pours a medium sized fizzy ivory head that mostly diminished, transparent amber body, fizzy carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The Aroma is light caramel malt and a hint of hops. The Taste mimics the Aroma. The Palate is fairly smooth and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer lacks character, no WOW factor and there are better of this style to be had. I do not recommend this beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours Amber with a thin small tan head. Strong aroma of malts. Unfortunately, the flavor doesn't match the aroma. Very thin and watery. Hints of caramel and toffee. Good effort but lacks in flavor.
