The Fest Devious line is similar to Epic’s Exponential Line in that the beers will be limited batches of highly creative recipes designed for the Fall Seasons palate.

Fest Devious Releases #1, #3, #4, #6, #7, #8, #9, #11, and #12 are a very light copper colored Märzen Lager made from Weyerman Pilsner, CaraMunich, Munich Malt 20, and Bonlander Munich Malt. Hoppped with Premiant, Tettnang and Saaz hops.

EdInSaltLake (584) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Sweet malty aroma; a little bread crust and fruitiness. Sweet, biscuit/toast, light caramel flavor. Spicy/herbal hops, and fruity yeast. The sweetness dominates the other malt flavors--but otherwise, good beer. (Release #15)

greenhorn1 (803) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Bottle, batch #11. Pours a clear deep orange. Very rich, sweet caramel, nutty flavor. There are some fruity undertones. A bit heavier than most traditional Marzens. It’s good but on the verge on being too sweet.

brinehart (201) - Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Beautifully clear reddish-orange. Dry, toasty malt dominates. Assertive hops in finish. Very clean and well made. Would be better to me if a bit less dry.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Draft at The Brass Tap - U Square (Cincinnati). Pours a totally clear golden color with a bit of a copper hue. Small off-white head that settles into a ring quickly. Notes of grassy, leafy hops, pale and toasty malts, some minor florals, faint husky grains, some earthiness throughout. Light-bodied, with a watery, earthy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Honestly, before I dug deeper into the entries, I figured I was drinking one of the Wet Hop Harvest Ale versions of this, but the last one was brewed a year ago. Didn’t strike me as a marzen.

brokensail (10596) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 11, 2013
On tap @ Epic (Denver). Pours copper in color with an off-white head. Really grainy, dusty nose. Some bread, toast, and sugary fruit. Some earthy and floral hops as well. Flavors are toasted bread, earth, and grain. Somewhat dusty, a little bit fruity, and fairly sweet all around. Not a big fan.
