3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Malty aroma with a bit of hops which I found unusual. Darker colored oktoberfest. Has a strange sweetness that I enjoy but can’t pinpoint.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep amber. Mostly caramel malts and herbal/earthy hops. Brief caramel malt sweetness that is ultimately taken over by the hops. A strange herbal-like hop bitterness that lingers a bit. Not a good match.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught during GTMW 2010 in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a bright orange amber colored brew with a thin and creamy off-white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and a thin ring. Aroma of caramel malt, a hint of honey, roasted nuts and a touch of almond marzipan. Taste is medium, bodied, smooth and creamy with flavors of sweet caramel malt, floral hops and a hint of honey. Finish is malty (Bavarian Style) with a caramel and floral hop aftertaste. A solid märzen throughout.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pint at the brewpub. Deep solid amber with a touch of head...malty, sweet, a bit raisiny in the body, just a hint of toastiness, and a fairly large smack of alcohol...body reminds me of caramel-apples, but with rum injected into them..syrupy, a bit too boozy, some nice toasty malts are present but for me the alcohol is just too much for this session style. Rather harsh finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Magnifying bright orange in color with a thin and creamy peach colored head. Squeezable plastic toys register first for aroma, anteceded by honey roasted almonds, fading Nutella, caramel, butterscotch and autumnal potpourri. Nice sweet and nutty flavor profile. A delectable mix of brown sugar sprinkled pecans and pistachio, complimented by a maple and honey one-two combo. Carbonation levels are nearly perfect, and the oaken and nutty sweetness derived from patience in lagering is greatly appreciated. Just enough spiciness to seal the deal, protruding with pepper and rye. Therein lies the finish, along with a sweetened brand flake cereal aftertaste. Very well done.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber color with no head. Sweet alcohol aroma. Light malt flavor with some honey to sweeten the mix. Very drinkable and a nice example for the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Brewhaus. Very light, very short-lived head. Yes, it looks like the amber, maybe a little deeper red. The alcohol this year is 6.9, and it is noticeable but not in your face. Very malty and sweet, but not cloyingly so, this is dangerously drinkable. Similar in style, but bolder in flavor, than the Pschorr Brau Octoberfest.
