500 ml bottle purchased at Andy’s Liquor in Rochester, Minnesota. The pour is mostly clear golden light orange with a 1/2 inch off white head that falls pretty quick. The aroma is bready, cereal grains, some light herbal and a hint of caramel sweetness. Some metallic is in there as well. The taste is cracker bready toast, gives way to an herbal grassiness and finishes back with the cereal husky grains. The mild sweetness of the nose is not present in the taste. The metallic somes out as the beer warms, detracting some. Regardless, a flavorful beer. The palate is light to medium bodied, gerat unfiltered mouth feel, and a dry mineral finish. Really easy drinking beer, I liked this.

Saeglopur (1335) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - SEP 17, 2015
500 ml bottle from Bottle Shop, Salzburg.
Amber-orange, clear body, with a big, fluffy, moderately lacing, yellowish head.
Aroma of bread, caramel, sweet fruits, flowers, grass.
Tastes of caramel, bread, flowers, must, sweet fruits, grass, some fresh herbs.
Quite light, slick mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes moderately bitter, sweet, bready, floral, a bit grassy, slightly herbal.

Really nice. Pretty much how I like a Märzen, but rarely ever find, brewed in the traditional style and not as flat and characterless as many examples today. Full malt body, while easy drinkable. Not my very favourite Austrian style example (Augustiner in Salzburg is unbeatable), but among the best.

Pours amber with lacing. It has bread aromas. It has a toffee like sweet taste that is smooth on the palate.

Aggiebob (447) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - APR 29, 2015
Bottle: It poured a hazy amber orange with a very tall frothy off-white head. The aroma is stale roasted malt and caramel. The taste is bready with a herbal hop finish. It is medium body with a dry finish. Not as sweet as I expected with a typical Marzen/Oktoberfest.

Bottle from Capone’s. Pours thick and turbid orangy with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is bready caramel malt, orange zest, hops. Tastes caramel malty, with some citric twang, hops, and a smooth mouthfeel. This is a beer I would drink frequently, and that is saying a mouthful.

Jow (2906) - New York, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Tap at Gingerman hoping this isn’t my last style rate of the week. Pours hazy amber with nose of earth and malt. Tastes of malt, dough, rye, some apple, and unfortunately odd plastic. Other than that one weird note pretty good.
