3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a reddish amber with a fine light head that faded to a nice lacing. The aroma was sweet and malty with a fruity hue. Taste was complex with maltiness upfront with a decent a carmel and nuttiness. The finish had a ’hay’ flavoring with a light hoppiness. The mouthfeel was decent. Overall, a nice marzen brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I enjoy a good Oktoberfest beer, even when the brewer spells it incorrectly. This one has a handsome pour, an orange/amber body with a sustained eggshell head. The aroma is sweet and caramelly, but the flavor tones down the sweetness and adds a mild earthy/grassy bitterness to balance it out. Enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear copper with white head. Aroma is light yeast. Flavors are yeast/bread, faintly sweet caramel malt, followed by a peppery spice hops. The finish is a blend of the above. Nicely balanced, leaning towards sweet but not too much. Relatively light on the palate but without being watery. Nice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Pours a rich honey amber color with a nice, off-white and frothy head. Toffee, caramel, and clean straw aroma with a hint of sweet clover honey. Flavor is quite a bit sweeter than I anticipated from the aroma - honeycomb, rich toffee, heavily toasted grain. Finish is rather watery and is an unfortunate send-off. Overall it’s not too bad - not overly malty, inoffensive, a touch sweet at times. Another bottle courtesy of Narnad.
