COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the traditional Märzen style our Oktoberfest pours a brilliant copper over rose color with a bone white head. Notes of toffee and burnt sugar in the aroma and flavors of sweet dried apricots are delivered in a dry malty body with the mild earthy bitterness that is the hallmark of Hallertau hops.

Bottle. Pours a light amber reddish orange color with no head. Nose is grainy and sweet and not full of any real flavor. Taste is pure malt and caramel. Finish is sweet as well, not a big lager lover, but yhis is drinkable. Quaff Score 6 / 10

Pours a clear amber with a white head and malty and caramel. Taste is light with malty notes throughout, with caramel, bread, light fruit and biscuits leading to a malty, medium finish. Solid for the style, drinkable

Bif (1697) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle- Pours a bright amber color with a small head that fades to nominal lacing. Aroma of mild citrus, malt sweetness, with a bit of fruit sweetness and grain. Taste of malt, light fruit sweetness and bit of grain. Mild bitterness and the finish is quite dry. Fairly light body, a subtle crispness and clean. Decent beer for the style.

DSG (8448) - Tel Aviv, - OCT 31, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber with a small off-white head. Malty aroma, toasty, caramelly, a bit nutty, a bit fruity. Sweetish malt flavor with caramel, bread, light toastiness, a fruity note and a drier finish with very light bitterness. OK, pretty easy-drinking.

12oz bottle shared. Pours copper red with off white head. Nice aroma of malts and some sweetness. Flavor wise for a marzan is actually pretty good solid malt backbone with something like a dried fruit and a touch of caramel. Overall good for style and flavor.

ben4321 (4779) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Location: Draft at The Hop, 9/20/13

Aroma: The nose is on-style, malty and bread/biscuit, with some underlying fruit notes
Appearance: It pours a mostly clear amber-orange color with a medium head and decent lace
Flavor: The flavor is medium sweet, clean and malty, with a light hop bitterness
Palate: The body is light, it has a pretty decent mouthfeel, and a clean, lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: Solid example of a fairly unexciting style. It does it’s job. That’s pretty much all I’ve got for this one.

TheAlum (6289) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Draft on tap at Tribes Alehouse (Mokena, IL). Pours a nice deep copper amber blend, near transparent, a healthy carmelized hue glows a bit darker, some more orange on the edges and bottom. A cakey offwhite head atop stays as a decent layer, good stick around, laces ok. Aromas show some biscuit and toast, gentle toffee sweetness, bread, gentle bread yeast, some subtle earthy florals and mellow spiciness, touch of crusty bread, touch of dark fruit. Initial is medium bodied, a touch of girth shows some toast and carmelized malts, biscuits, touch of toffee. Some sweetness meets some decent earthy hop bitterness, a touch floral and mellow spice. Middle is a bit fruity, some apple, gentle pit fruit and dark fruit influence hits quickly. Backend moves back to some soapy dryness, a bit floral and earthy, still a firmer body of toffee and biscuits, some gentle toastiness. That fruit feel in the middle is distinct for me. Touches of dryness, some gentle girth. Finish is a bit toasty, subtle carmelization, toast and some gentle dryness. Some gentle fuzziness, some spiciness, firmer biscuit. A solid Oktoberfest, not brooding or too thick, not too sweet, a nice earthy hop balance. Solid stuff.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with creamy off-white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of caramel malt and grassy hops. Body is medium and crisp. Caramel malt, herbal hops and hint of cherry nicely balanced on the palate. Finish is medium and balanced. Well made Oktoberfest.
