Solid Oktoberfest. Pours a bright copper, big white head. Caramel and bread dough flavors, just a bit of hop at the end. Pretty straightforward.

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.

Bottle. Another great beer for Highland. Pours an dark orange-amber-copper color with a decent head and great lace.. Taste is more floral-hops then most marzen style beers. Aroma is a malty, spicy, floral with slight nuts. Good stuff.

Not at all a bad Marzen, only a tad thin in body and too hoppy to really sit back and appreciate. German malts are evident with the notes of toffee but after a while it just gets pretty bitter and distracting. Ayinger still reigns supreme here :-P.

Draft at World Of Beer in Land O Lakes. Clear amber pour with a foamy white head. Roasted caramel malt aroma and flavor with some lingering spices. Decent but far from exciting.

Bottle. Crisp and light tasting. Nice for the fall. Nice beer for a sat afternoon raking leaves.

Not as huge in the flavor dept, but very creamy and smooth. A solid highland offering, however not in my top tier of Ofests. I do always like to support NC breweries, though, so I’ll probably buy again.

A nice brew. pours out an orange color with a smaller head. aroma was your typical marzen. flavor was also your typical but had a nice clean finish
