4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear copper like a new penny, under a thin tight foamy head. Nose is sweet and biscuity with some toast and caramel, with that chewy marzen grain tone...smells like the best marzen ever. Tasty flavor of sweet toasted bicuit, lots of caramel, light malts, sweetness, light bitterness, and a little sweet nuttiness. Best Marzen ever, while still coloring within the lines.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appropriately colored for "a fall celebration" - copper/red that looks like fall. Somewhat sweet, lightly carbonated and minimal hop flavor and aroma.

Bottle from Total wine sterling. Pours brown with a khaki head. Doesn’t leave much lacing. A little bit of malt on the nose. Caramel on the tongue. Finishes clean. Eh! It’s an octoberfest.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a transparent light copper with foamy off-white head. Smells and tastes sweet, malty, and doughy with a solid mouthfeel. A solid example of the style.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE TASTED: November 27, 2013... GLASSWARE: Schneider Weisen Edel-weisse pokal... OCCASION: Cavs/Heat Thanksgiving eve treat... APPEARANCE: thick, off-white three-finger head; excellent, almost decorative lacing; smoldering effervescence; cloudy, dense autumnal amber body... AROMA: caramel, toffee and generous pale malts; secondary pine hops balance the experience... PALATE: medium to full-bodied--teeth-chattering; surprisingly active early and late...TASTE: redundant to the aroma, caramel and toffee dominate the flavor; a zesty lemon hop spice intercedes for balance; a nuttiness reminiscent of a brown ale seeps in...complex and befitting of a waning Autumn night--a bit alcoholic late...OVERALL: the second beer I’ve had from Epic provides a similar experience to the first--rich, complex, almost challenging to evaluate or categorize, as the bottle suggests--a Marzen, yes, but much fuller of body and substantial of flavor...

Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a clear golden/amber color with a small off white hea. The aroma and flavor have a clean malty base with mild fruit and spices notes, bready, light toasted, very mild bitterness to the finish. Decent, worth trying once.
