2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light copper color yeasty bread nose lightly effervescent mouthfeel. Not my favorite Octoberfest beer of this year but certainly not the worst.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours amber with a one finger off white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma and taate is of toasted bread, caramel sweet malts, light toffee, grassy hops, and some spicy hops. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi bitter, medium finish. Overall, a pretty nice Oktoberfest.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear dark orange crystal clear and great carbonation. Thick sweet malty flavor good martzen...could be a little crisper for my palate but may be not really what the style commands.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A- Malty, spice, wheat.
A- Pale orange color, clear liquid, off white head.
T- Malty, spice, slightly woody..
P- Light body, average texture, medium carbonation, malty finish.
O- This was a little past the best by date but I still did’t expect it to be this bland and unbalanced. Just tasted really malty and not a lot of anything else. Very disappointing. Better as it warms.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz single bottle into a pint glass, purchased yesterday, best by 11/26/14, WTF Tipsy’s? Burnt orange, light amber and clear appearance with a white head and light lacing. Aroma of Munich malts, light noble hops, toffee, bread, toasted grains and light caramel. The flavor is malt forward and moderately sweet with a light spicy hop bitterness coming through in the finish. Pretty solid oktoberfest bier, even after the best by date.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle with a BB date stamp of Dec. 2014.
A bit bland, even for a Marzen, this beer manages to have crisp, lively carbonation with a head that’s a bit weak for style. Light aroma and flavor is even a tad light for style, although not the hop level. Nearly as sweet as it is bitter.

Very solid marzen. Smells slightly like caramel with a nice amber color. Taste is good with very little bitterness and after taste.

Golden orange and clear. Aroma is bready and toasty malt. Taste is bready, toasty, with a slight hint of caramel and raisin. Mouthfeel is medium with light to moderate carbonation. Finishes with lingering maltiness with hints of raisin

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours golden orange with no head. Aromas of grapes and cartelized sugar. Taste is malty with some notes of grapes. A large amount of carbonation for a beer with not residual head. Ok at best.
