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.

On tap at World of Beer UCF. Pours a copper orange with a white head and aroma of caramel and malt. Taste is of toasted malt, caramel, bread, hops and honey with a crisp, light sweet finish. For the style, very drinkable. Great Oktoberfest brew from CCB.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber with a thick white head. Aroma is malts and cane syrup. Taste is malts with a minute hop bite and a easy malt finish. A little unusual to have a hoppy flavor in a Marzen, but not bad.

At the brewpub. Pours orange with a small creamy white head. Smell is sweet honey, lagery, standard Marzen smell with some extra sweetness. La or is sweet and light, with some hints of spice and a slightly dirty Marzen finish. Low carbonation and a lingering honey wheaty taste on the palate. Right on style and at the top of the style, just not my favorite style. Had to try though.
