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.

12 ounce bottle into dimpled mug, bottled on 8/8/2013. Pours slightly hazy ruby copper color with a 1 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Minimal lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big carmael, biscuit, toast, toffee, brown bread, brown sugar, pear, apricot, nuttiness, floral, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/toasted malt notes with moderate yeast ester balance; and great strength. Taste of big caramel, biscuit, toast, toffee, brown bread, brown sugar, nuttiness, floral, pear, apricot, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, brown sugar, brown bread, nuttiness, floral, and light pepper on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of dark/toasted/nutty malt flavors; with great robustness and minimal cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very creamy and moderately slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Oktoberfest style. Great robustness, balance, and complexity of malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

A clear, copper pour with a fluffy, off-white head. The aroma has sweet caramel and toffee. It has a medium body with smooth texture and average carbonation. The taste is sweet with some alcohol and warmth in the finish.

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.

Aroma is malts, light bananas and a hint of fruit. The flavor is malts, fruit, bananas and a dryish and mildly bitter finish.
