Burnt orange nose is faint. Caramel and oranges malty with old oranges and cream corn. Good but not challenging the palate.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, courtesy of JStax - thanks! Pours a light copper color with a modest ring of sandy head. Mild aroma is light toast, herbals, and sweeter caramel malt. I dig the noble hops in the taste; a nice crisp floral and semi-spicy taste goes well with the malt base. Drinks very well in a style that is hit or miss for me. Prost!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle thanks to Jstax ! Pours a rich copper color with a couple fingers of eggshell foam that falls off quickly. The nose is subtle, sweet toasted malts, a touch of grass and caramel. The palate follows with nice focus and a big malt presence but its not overly sticky. Nice refreshing kick of bubbles and bitterness helps with drinkability. Solid !

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle courtesy of queenholly, Labeled simply as “Oktoberfest” . Dimpled mug shows a hazy amber thin a quickly vanishing white head. Light bread malt, and a hint of fruit. The main body is grainy with sweet caramel malt and a subtle fruity bitterness. Carbonation is correct giving this a creamy type texture. Simple yet respectable Marzen, easy drinking for sure.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
I think I have determined that I don’t really care for this style; had a few this fall and meh - this was another; malty aroma; sweet up front with crisper finish but not much there for me.
