3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle, the pour is orange with a white head that has a slight orange hue. The aroma is malts lightly roasted. The taste is medium roasted malts and cereal. The finish is malts. The mouthfeel is highly carbonated and thin. Overall not a bad Octoberfest beer, if it is hot outside this would be a good one to drink at the fest.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. 8/18/16 bottle date. Appearance: Dark copper, with a slight haze and a thick off white head with great lacing.
Aroma: Bready malt with a slight touch of spicy hoppiness.
Taste: Bready, lightly toasted malt with a moderate bitterness, strong for the style, that lends some herbal and spicy notes.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate carbonation.
Finish: A touch of sulphur, with bitter toast that lingers.
Overall: A decent, but not great marzen. Seems to be a little light on the bready, Munich malt character of the style, and the lighter maltiness lends to a stronger perceived bitterness. Very clean, crisp and easy drinking, but pretty far removed from the true German Marzens

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours Pale copper amber; brief white, frizzy head. Aroma caramel malt. Taste is caramel malt, on the sweet side, with a faint bitter hop note. Palate is a sweet coating to the tongue. Overall, nice Oktoberfest, generally well balanced. Sweetness seems to be a characteristic of most American Oktoberfests, and while not excessive here, it is a bit sweet for my taste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle into mug, clear goldeny-amber color with light tan head. Aroma notes of caramel malt sweetness, some roast and light earthy hops. Taste adds toast, grain, some honey with balanced hop bitterness. Light-medium body, moderate-heavy carbonation, crisp, soft with clean caramel-faint bitter finish. Seems more hop forward than average, good.
