3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep amber-orange-red hue with a medium, creamy white head. Cookie, dark bread, floral, herbal, dough, biscuit. Damn clean aroma. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic flavor. Lightly sweet, moderately bitter finish. Maybe a little astringent and a bit too bitter for the malt profile. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.

Pours copper colored and a fast disappearing head. Malt and a bit of caramel in the aroma. Rather thin malt flavor with hints of spices and nut. Thin in the body and quite uninteresting. Not much of an oktoberfest!

Copper. Malty caramel sweetness. Not bad, but low on my list of oktoberfests

This was one of my favorites in the marzen vertical sort of thing we were doing at the pre Guvna departs GA tasting. A malty and bready aroma. An orangish/brown apperance with nice head and good lacing on the glass. The flavor was fairly dry with some citrus fruit mainly orange peel and more bread showing through. A nice one.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark clear red with a medium white head. Nice aroma of kilned malts, bread and noble hops. Flavor has notes of caramel, grain, toasted malt, euro hops and a touch of grass then ends a bit on the bland side. Moderate sweetness, moderate hop bitterness. The body is medium and creamy with lively carbonation. No lacing or head retention really. Solid, but I think Brooklyn can do better.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
35,5 cl bottle. No yeast in bottom. Reddish brown colour with a weak lance head. Aroma of malt. Very smooth flavour of malt and some hops. Not much bitter and dry. But overall a very easydrinking beer. This beer is little away from German style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nose nothing special. Appearance best part of the beer for me. Dark golden copper color, small off white head, leaving good lacing. Taste not quite what I expected. Sweetish without being sweet, a touch of malt, a touch of hops, not much there. Mouthfeel is dry and chalky. Finish is ... well ... I don’t know. Licorice? Clove? Something I did not expect to find in a Marzen. Despite their deScription, a bit more hops would not have hurt.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(on bottle) Not exatcly to style, huh? Amber, clear colour and a disapearing white head. More carameld than light toast and most def. not with a high drinkability; too hard roasted and bitter/burned finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty red color with sweet, bready aroma. Taste is largely yeast and malt with minimal hops. Somewhat watery too. Pleasant but maybe not up with Brooklyn’s best stuff.
