Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2009
Sampled from 64-oz growler during Darkness Day 2009 in Brooklyn Center, MN. Has all three basic characteristics of a Märzen (copper orange, malty caramel aroma/taste, semi-sweet finish). Some unique characteristics of this one includes a mild bitter finish with a touch of bread dough aftertaste flavor. More of a vienna style oktoberfest than munich. A solid octoberfest overall. (Rating 3900 - "World Party Anthem" aka: Let’s have another beer! - Good Rats Band)

boto (1826) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - OCT 22, 2009
Draught @ Brewpub: This one poured a crystal clear amber color. There was a small off-white head on mine. It left some lacing. It has a nice aroma. There are some roasted malts, toffee and a hint of nuttiness. It has a bit of a dry taste. Nice maltiness and bitterness. The nutiness makes a slight appearance in the taste. Nice.
