APPEARANCE- looks like a true style Oktoberfest, like a marzen should. Better head than mor beers ive drinken at Munich’s octonerfest (an interesting note for my followers, my profile pic on RB is a selfie from the Haufbrau tent in 2014). NOSE- very little of anything in the nose. FLAVOR- very light flavor. Probably good for drinking large quantities at the event, bit if I want a beer that has some character, this isn’t it.

HonkeyBra (4036) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 2016
On draft at the Bavarian Lodge in Lisle, IL. Pours a deep amber orangish color with an off white head. Aroma of herbal hops and caramel malt notes. Flavor is bitter with herbal hop presence surrounded by sweet caramel and toffee malts. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel, lively mouthfeel with a caramel and bitter hop finish. Overall, nice.

Bottle. Slightly hazy amber colour with a medium white head, surprisingly hoppy aroma with spicy, floral, almost perfumed notes but also some hints of chocolate and toffee, taste is more malty and a bit roasty with a nice dry finish and also some booziness, creamy mouthfeel. Nice one!

Bill Becker (819) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - DEC 11, 2015
Pours a hazy ripened peach colour, good and long lasting head of foam. I get fruity and bready notes in the smell. Kinda sweet but kinda not. Bready in the taste but dominated over by some kind of stone pitted fruit. I can’t quite pull out what it is but it’s distracting. Great mouthfeel. Code on the label: 41517060. ? 41st day of 2015? Not worthy of a future visit.
