2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
It has very little aroma. It pours a nice amber color, which I expected for this beer. Its very plain. The first sip starts off bland, a hint of malt. Then it finishes with a light bitter taste. That is it, it really had no complexity at all. It has a very light, watery palate. Just really depressing since its one of my favorite breweries. The old Oktoberfest was infinitely better then this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours deep caramel-copper into the glass, clear with a fizzy white head that diminishes with each pull to no lace of which to speak. The nose is of caramel and light spices. Nice caramel and toffee sweetness and met with light pie spices in the finish, closing spicy. The body is medium with a round mouthfeel and appropriate carbonation semi-zest to the palate, as to make a very nice quaff for this Märzen. All-in-all, a nice Oktoberfest... malty, perfect for the season. Good job.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. The beer poured a clear amber color with an off white and lacing. The beer had sweet caramel malts on the nose. The balanced Marzen beer had a medium body with average carbonation. This is easy to drink Octoberfest with a smooth clean finish malt aroma. Nice beer.
