Reserving judgment until I can try again because I had the second to last pint before the line blew, but this was very unlike a marzen. Too lightly colored and the taste was kind of flat.

On tap at the brewpub in Bend while waiting for a table. Crystal clear golden copper color with a small thin quick off white head. Like the previous raters I pick up toasted malts with bready notes and honey. Light, crisp an some nice flavors. Good for the style, but not too terribly interesting.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ Bend brewpub:   Pale amber, translucent, little head, very little in the way of carbonation.   Grainy nose, mealy, fairly hefty.   Comes across as a bigger German example.   A little too mealy on the tongue for my tastes.   Clean on the backside, good body and mouthfeel.   Solid example, bigger and heavier but very German like.   I suppose that the heavy mealiness somewhat kills me tho.   Bigger in body than most.   Clean, just heavy mealiness that I don’t really care for.

On tap at the Portland pub. Pours a soft copper with a mild off-white head. Very fruity oktoberfest, didn’t quite have the depth of malt that I like. I tend to go for the more toasted malt varieties. Very drinkable with a long fruity malt finish and good balance.

Clear dark honey orange. Little to no head. Rich semi-sweet malt forward bread crust and honey flavored Munich and Vienna malts. Rich, sticky and lightly peppery texture... vibrant and fresh, layered well. Clean. Very tasty
