3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hand=bottled bomber courtesy Ty5592! Pours clear dark orange with a thick and lacy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, bread, floral hops. Medium body and full carbonation. The lightly sweet caramel, bread, floral hops come through in the taste, along with a little citrus. Dry floral finish. A little more hoppy than the average Marzen, but not so much that it detracts from the malty goodness of the style.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Too much alcohol (gasp!) It’s 7.7% in Phoenixville. The alchohol overpowers and it’s very sweet, too sweet for an Oktoberfest in my book. Nice aroma, spicy, a little yeasty - first sip takes you by surprise.
