On tap at Heartland 51st. Hard to catch the aroma in the restaurant. Darker than I expected. Roasty malt flavor, some hops, very drinkable. Good finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mahogany color. Tastes a bit like ribbon candy. I’d like to take a note as to how much I love other people picking up the check for new beers I have. Had this at Union Sq. location. One of the better Oktoberfests I’ve drank since experiencing the style.

Pours dark amber with a thick tan head. Smells like grain and caramel and fruits. Smooth taste with a good deal of caramel. This is really nice.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Union Square. Pours a dark color with clear appearance. Aroma very sweet but faint. Taste was malty with a little hop character. Very generic marzen- not much body but not too bad. Smooth palate but no aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Great Octoberfest color, Good roasted malt flavor with a bit of counteracting bitterness. Aroma is almost undetectable. A better example of the style.
