2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Just going through all the Oktoberfests I massed up over the past couple months before they go bad. This one is average among a category that strives for average. Pours brown with OK head and lacing. A little touch of mash sourness. Some barley. Aftertaste gets annoying after a few sips. Bottle.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap, I would have never known this was to be an october fest beer. Some of that typical ipa aroma in there. Pale yellow with a big foamy head. Flat no co2. Does have some fruity attributes to it. Does not seem to be over the top in alky content. Not as rude as many october fest beers but it does carry a bit of uneasiness to it. Yes, somebody could easily mistaken this stuff with a milder ipa, go figger.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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
