COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Haunting the congregation with its distinct copper color and rich toasted malt flavor, this true German-style Oktoberfest lager is smooth in body and uses German hops in the brewing process to balance out the distinctive, toasted malt sweetness. The clean smoothness is created by the long conditioning (lagering) process of 8 weeks.

Appearance- semi clear amber, copper. Small bone white head that didn’t last long. Minimal lacing. Smell- clean. Very malty, bready, and sugary. A little spice, too. Taste- sweet and spicy. The malt, bread, and sugar on the nose come through completely. Mouthfeel- a little rough around the edges (going in) with a surprisingly smooth and creamy finish. Medium body. Overall- just ok (for me). A so so Marzen. Nothing great, nothing offensive. Cheers!

Poured from bottle a nice cooper with a just off white head. Aroma was pure malt as was the taste with a touch of caramel and a nice sweetness. Most find this a boring category but I rather enjoy German malty beers and I think this one is a great rep for the category. Medium body and curtains of lace. Enjoyed

Dark amber with thin lacy foamy offwhite head; aroma is slightly noting of vanilla; Flava is mildly sweet and malty; feels medium and fizzy foamy; finishes dry grainy semi sweet

Bottled. Poured orange brown moderate head. Caramel but not well integrated and a bit off. Not great.

Bottle. Nose is a little dirty, toasted caramel, little stale. Transparent amber-copper pour with a sudsy beige head. Taste only slightly sweet, picking up some great toffee and light earthy tones, touch rubbery and unclean, but also fresh and bright. Really a bunch of contradictions. Medium body, malty with some surprising notes, almost pumpkinous (colored me surprised, but my palate’s fine) with accompanying spice, light cloying fruit in the bg. Smooth with pleasant lager body, just has some oddities that make me push away an offered second.

12oz bottle. Poured a deep golden orange color with a small foamy tan head. Aroma and flavor of sweet grain, lemon, oranges, caramel malt, and yeast.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with long lasting, foamy white head. Aroma is of grassy hops, caramel malt and sourdough. Body is full and smooth. Grassy hops, caramel malt, grain and some salt fill the mouth. Finish is medium and almost dry. OK brew.

Fine oktoberfestbier. Rich lager, lots of fruit on the hops, and a sweet-but-not-too-sweet malt profile.

Nice toasted clean malt aroma. No hops on the nose. Appearance is orange with an off-white head with excellent retention. Flavor contains an initially sweet toasted malt flavor that is somewhat dried out by the hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, its a decent Marzen. I think it needs some more hop bitterness to dry out the finish though.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured reddish copper, clear with nice off white head, lots of lacing. Aroma is malty, caramel, some mild hop notes. Taste is also quite sweet and malty, some spices, some nutty notes, slightly bitterness towards the end. Nice, drinkable, not bad.
