bready, biscuity with moderate sweetness. Malt dominated flavor profile is broken up by toasty oak and light noble hop presence. Super dry finish. All in all, not a world beater, but I personally love the oak thrown into the typical marzen flavor profile!

From a keg. Pours golden with some orange. Some malt, cracker and bread crust with some orange citrus in the finish. Reminds me of an APA, really. A little flora and spice.

Got a 1/2bbl of this from the brewery for the kegerator in my office. This is a great daily drinker at 5.0% ABV and is a style that appeals to a large number of people’s palates.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft - Lots of grain and a bit of orange. Clear orange with a rich beige head. Grains and bread upfront, with a bit of orange and caramel and grains in the finish. There is a nice bitterness throughout that finishes clean

Kind of a rich golden color. Translucent. Adequate carbonation maintains a large, crisp white head. Faint aroma but reminiscent of pilsner malt and fall. Refreshing palate with the malt underplayed. Heavy lace.

I had just finished off a bottle of Firestone Reserve Porter, when I rolled down the hill to my favorite beer shop, West Richland...
Decided to fill a growler with the Oaktoberfest, a half with the Reverend from Avery. Wish I’d reversed that call.
Drinkable and has some weight to it. None too exciting.

On tap at 10 East. Absolutely awful. Corn/masa in the aroma, corn chips on the flavor. I know that corn is a bountiful harvest in the Fall, and this is a beer brewed for the Fall season but this was absolutely awful. Might just be the worst Firestone Walker beer I’ve had to date. A very strange beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. The look is very clear, bright, off white head, and golden in color. The smell is malt, crisp, oats, subtle but nice, and good. The taste is make, grain, noble hops, and crisp. Well put together

Average marzen at the brewery. Light bread on mouth. Golden perfection. Not on my top list.

Pour on tap at Black Bottle, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought toast, biscuit, bread, hints of grain, nice spice in there going into some caramel, toffee, slight grassy and slighty fruity notes as well. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, slight hints of spice, earth into a bit of toast, some grassy notes, hints of fruit, finishing sweet, slightly bitter.
