On draft at O’Malley’s in Sylva, NC. Amber colored with a creamy white head. Nice, full bodied flavor for an Octoberfest/Marzen. Highland again comes through with another tasty seasonal offering. Smooth, silky and full of fall flavor.

Bottle gifted from friends. Thanks Mike and Andrea. Aromas are bread, caramel, grass, iron, copper. Pours a rusty orange. Flavor is bready with a metallic twang to it. It’s not offensive but it seems to be the first thing my mind thought of when drinking this. Overall it’s a good brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty solid marzen. Copper colored. Sweet caramel and toffee aroma. Some spicy hops come through in taste, but dominated but sweet and bready malts. Easy drinking.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from bottle into shaker. Pours a very light orange with a 2 finger head. Head dissipates to a thin skim fairly quickly. Aroma - light aroma, but malt and spicy hops present. Taste is very malty, no real hop character. One note really, lots of caramel and toffee notes.

Brown pour with minimal head. Toast, malt, bread, caramel. Generally sweet. Big body, slam able. Everything a marzen should be.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a crystal clear autumn color with a decent head which dissipates fairly quick. Aroma is a rich malt note with some weak caramelized brown sugar or molasses. Taste is malty, bready, almost a weak holiday spice note from the carbonation playing on the tongue. Overall a great drinkable beer, killed my whole first one in about 5 minutes.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt and floral hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a mostly transparent golden orange with foamy eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of mild caramel and very soft hops. Tastes like it smells with some biscuit as well. Average on the palate. A decent no-frills example of the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A bit blah. Looked way better than it tasted. Pours a really nice color for a lager- clear amber with nice white head. Nuttiness and malt on the nose- same on palate with the addition of a bitter finish. About the right mouthfeel for a lager- feels more summer-y than an octoberfest beer should. Just not that much to it- want a bit more barley and hops and a bit less water in my brews.
