3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very dark gold with a strong, three finger head that leaves a good amount of lacing on the glass. Deep malt notes in the aroma with some roastyness as well. Moderate amount of carbonation, just enough not to interfere with the taste. Just enough bittering hops to balance the malt. The only thing I am missing is the strong caramel notes that are present in some of the German marzens.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Malty nutty aromas. Typical fest beer flavors. Finishes with a little metallic tinge. Overall a decent fest beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is strong and malty with fruity and earthy underpinnings. Pours a clear, orangy amber with a fairly thick pale wheat head that leaves generous lacing. Lip-smacking flavor has a malty core and firm tones of cloves, fruit and honey. Smooth texture has average body and fizz. Happy Autumnal Equinox - in the northern hemisphere, anyway.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Amber brew with off white head that soon settles. Clear. Aroma of malt with vegetal overtones. Taste is lagerish, sweet, with a little malt. Light hops in the finish but still ends a little sweet. Overall - a nice light brew, nice example of the style.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange pour with a frothy white head. Aroma has some vegetable, bread and faint metallic notes. Nice carbonation. Flavor is actually pretty malty, with medium sweetness and a lingering vegetable aftertaste. Bitter finish. Middle of the road for a fest beer but not bad.

Draught at Rattle&Hum, NYC. Malty, fruity, bready aroma, sicy, biscuits, apples and pears, hop notes, some grass. Malty caramel flavor, banana, pear, hay, some pepper. Bitter finish, spicy and with some citrus. Thin bodied and a bit boring.
