12 oz bottle...this would be from last year, so I’m guessing this has been sitting a while. It’s an ok beer....not one of the better Marzen’s in my opinion, but certainly not a bad tasting beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12ounce bottle that purs an amber orange color with minimal white head. Aromas of malt, caramel, and a touch of grass. Flavor is the same with a touch of banana at the end. Enteresting bet for a summer seasonal, would have expected this to be an autum/fall release.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy light orange pour with a thinner white head. Aroma and taste of caramel malt, banana, and yeast. Pretty darn good. Strange style for a summer seasonal but really, who cares.

I’m not getting anything special. malts are rich enough, hops are too grassy for this style. not enough character.

12 ounce bottle from Steve’s Mineral Point in Madison. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel and toasted malts. The taste is caramel, grain, grassy hops banana and other faint fruits. Medium bodied.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is nothing special with adjuncts, dust, grass, and cardboard. The appearance is light amber with a nice head. The taste is better than the aroma with lots of malt and a bit of toffee in the finish. The palate is average. Overall a good beer.

Confusing now that there’s an oktoberfest out in a similar bottle. But not bad.
