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.

great example of the style, and up there with the better American versions. rich and malty, caramel, bread and toffee greet the nose and palate. finishes dry and sweet.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pour is Clear light copper with a small soapy white head. Aroma is sugary toasted malt with light hay and yeast. Flavor is sweet with lightly toasted malt and a faintly hoppy finish. Lightly floral. The yeasty finish that usually turns me off to this style is absent, but still really sweet for the abv. I like this more than most marzen but still not at the top of my list. It grew on me slowly.

12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear amber/orange, with a moderate white head which quickly fades. No lacing. Not much on the nose, faint aroma of malt. Taste is OK, typical for the style. An average Oktoberfest.

On tap. Served a dark amber color with a decent head and fair lacing. Aroma of malt, bit of fruit and hops in the background. Taste of malt, some caramel and fruit sweetness. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Moderate body, smooth with a light malty feel. Decent beer for the style.
