Pours a nice color. Nice flavor and a bit of a bite to it which stands out from other Oktoberfests.

Meh. I wouldn’t call this bland, per se, in fact if its anything, its too sweet. Brown sugar and candy in the flavor to an unsettling degree. One of the lesser varieties from this usually decent brewery.

Tap @ Empyrean. Pours hazy orange appearance with an off white head. Boring, grainy, toasty malty, straw aroma. A bit tangy, bitter floral hoppy, herbal, grainy flavor.

Hazy amber.Light thin head. Ok carb.
Aroma is pretty nice with some vanilla bready sweetness,very slight butterscotch carmel.
Taste is malty carmel with light vanilla slight orange but not citrus.Kind of flat but bready,slight toast Somewhat peppery maybe moreso in finish. Finish is mildly orange tart citrus.Its good but seems flat,maybe under carbed.

This is my favorite Oktoberfest. Munich malt dominates the flare or and aroma. Noble hops balance the flavor. This is my favorite empyrean/Lazlos beer. Should be their signature.

My favorite Oktoberfest of the year. It pours a great color and has a little kick to it when it hits your tongue. It’s not bitter and tastes as you’d expect a Marzen to.
