Good and malty but not the best brooklyn beer I have ever had. Still very drinkable!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a big off white that lightly laced the entire glass. Classic malty Marzen nose and a dry lightly sweet malt flavor with a pleasent bitterfinish. Med bodt, lively carb, wet texture, dry feel. Truely a classic Marzen style beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from bottle into pint glass. Clear amber color with small white head. Aroma is caramel and malt. Taste isn’t that strong or flavorful, mostly sweet and malty, with a little hop bite. Moderate carbonation that leaves not much of lingering harshness.

Drinkable, but this was a real dissapointment for me.

It doesn’t have as much of a bite that other octoberfests I tried but still a great representative of the style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
While a Märzen needs some sweetness, this one was over the top sweet, without the maltiness to match. Almost a saccharine-like flavor.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours amber in color. Aroma of malt and spice. Off white head. Flavor of malt up front. Finishes with a nice hop balance. Good laceing. A good brew but not the best O’fest around but enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours light amber with a good-sized off-white head. A nice floral, bright aroma with grass and fruit notes. A very drinkable beer, but with limited complexity. Crisp with minimal aftertaste, thin, a bit watery. Overall balanced but disappointing. They got the essence of the style...but nothing unique or special about this one.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Malty, not very complex flavor. Light medium body. Not much head. Pleasant, but I miss the hoppiness of Brooklyn’s "flagship" lager. BUY AGAIN?: Maybe

This isn’t bad, but nothing I would recommend. Taste and aroma are okay for the style. [short review due to it coming from my backlog]
