A - Pours a brilliant bronze. 1 finger head off-white head. S - Lots of rich malt. Toasted toffee. Slightly metallic. T - Buttery toffee. Toasted marshmallows. Has a green pear tartness. Toasted pecans. Spicy herbal hops adds some bite. Finishes very clean. M - Medium creamy body. The rich malty nose was enticing except for the dreaded metallic notes. The metal didn’t show up in the flavor though. This goes great in the fall with some grilled brats and a football game. Serving type: bottle 09-26-2010

Pours a crystal copper orange color. Nice eggshell color head. Dissipates quickly. Not a lot of lacing.

Aroma is roasted malt. Some greasiness, and toffee. Some floral hop complexity.

Taste is oddly malty and hoppy. It’s also spicy, too spicy.

Mouthfeel is medium. It’s dry. It has a weird aftertaste. I don’t know if its hops or what. It’s bitter.

Overall, I’m not spending too much time on this. I don’t like it. I feel they strayed a little too far from the marzen style to call it a marzen.

Clear copper colored with a moderate head. Plenty of carbonation. Nicely balanced with caramel malt and a subtle hop profile. A tad on the dry side for the style but still good and highly drinkable.

Bottled@SBWF2015. Amber colour, small off-white head. ARoma is fruity, floral, wooden and some mild bready and caramelly notes. Flavour is quite similar, but also has a nice crisp malty edge to it. Tasty and easy to drink.

Delicious Oktoberfest. Appearance is much lighter than a typical Oktoberfest. Dark golden color lots of flavor and smooth finish. Another solid effort by boulevard ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light copper color yeasty bread nose lightly effervescent mouthfeel. Not my favorite Octoberfest beer of this year but certainly not the worst. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

skmikeg (1468) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - SEP 4, 2015
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.

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.
