Credit where credit is due. Marzen not one of my face styles yet each October I find myself drinking quite a few as it seems like the thing to do. Most have been average at best but this year Sierra Nevada and now cigar city have produced solid marzen outings with just enough of a kick of hops to make it quite enjoyable. Very well done CCB.

After drinking Weizenheimerstamperphaser Oktoberfestbier this one is a giant let down.

Can - Pours a clear copper with fairly large, but quickly dissipating head. Aromas of caramel and bread. Nice mouth feel, biscuity. All good but the finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A really nice marzen. Orange-copper pour. Honey and bread aromas. Sweet and light with more honey and yeast in taste and mild carbonation. Sure, doesn’t set the world on fire, but I think two, three or four of them would go great with a big German dinner of schnitzels and sausages. Getting hungry now. Solid Oktoberfest from CCB.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light bronze pour. Faint bready aroma. Taste is sweet malt and doughy bread up front. This quickly fades into some light hops and a dry finish. Good but needs more malt to really be a great Oktoberfest.

Very mild. More of a session beer than an Oktoberfest. Very drinkable. Clean.

Cigar City Oktoberfest is an average speciman of the style. Pour is an expected orange with a thin head. Aroma is light honey. Taste has some honey notes with a little too much malt character on the backend. Sorry to say CCB Oktoberfest is not. standout.
