On tap at Beer Revolution and at the Celtic Knot. Clear golden coloured pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma has a hint of malty sweetness, and a bold earthy hop aroma. Medium carbonation. Bubbly, dry mouthfeel, medium-bodied. Light bitterness in the finish, quite smooth. Excellent brew.

Bottled by Dohny, many thanks! German blah industrial beer. Drinkable, but aggressive alcohol. Malty in aroma and taste. Drinkable.

Brown in color and somewhat light body, this beer is rather lively and fizzy but the head is gone almost immediately. Smell metal to me, and the finish is bitter but gives away as soon as I chew some lightly salted peanuts. Again, I have high expectation for this beer. However, it ends up being a watered down version of ale to me.

Fresh malt aroma, like your eating it fresh. Tasty and sweet. One of the better Oktoberfest I have had.

Aroma of honey. Dark amber pour with decent head. Has the sweet notes like most other marzen’s, but is much more drinkable than others. Really enjoyed this one.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was a nice random find. Reasonably colour even though I don't get hung up on this. A nice bittery taste for a Germanic beer. Not overly smell rich or maybe i must try another bottle to be sure. In any case it was a nice session beer that I could see added to my short list for future acquisitions when one wants something known rather than a random test.

330 mL bottle. These German imports shaft you by only giving 11.2 fluid ounces in what should be a 12 fluid ounce bottle. But, what the heck, I love these Oktoberfest beers. I know the general population of ratebeer.com doesn't agree with me about that, but nevertheless I look forward to this time of year eagerly. I love to compare the American and the German interpretations of the Märzen style. This one fits squarely in the German tradition! Great color, full Oktoberfest taste and a hearty 5.8% ABV. Perfect for football or the World Series!
