On tap at Sugar Land Saucer. Clear brownish-amber with an off-white head. Toasty, nutty, sweetish caramel aroma and rich malty taste with what seems to be a relatively high abv for the style. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Pretty good marzen.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can: Orange hued golden, sudsy white head, sparce lacing, light carbonation. Bready nose, biscuit, slightly mealy. Sweet breadiness to start. As it warms, the nose does get a bit corny but thankfully I don’t get that on the tongue. Smooth bready malts, biscuit, with only a touch of mealiness. Pretty clean overall. Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full. Finishes semi-sweet, malty, bready, touch of biscuit and mealiness. Decent. Thanks Bill!

12 oz can poured clear golden with two fingers of frothy white head that stuck around for a bit and left spotty sticky lacing. Nose is roasted malt and mild hops. Taste is of roasty malts, apple, bread and a little hoppiness. Sweet all the way through. Almost has a cider like mouthfeel.

This is the second beer I’ve tried from this company. I’m a fan of the Oktoberfest beers and this one hits the spot. Yummy

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at Anvil Bar & Refuge. The beer is a clear dark orange-amber color with a thin off-white head that evaporates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malt and mild hops. Light-bodied with flavors of grainy malt, caramel and grassy hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Can. Pours an orange-amber with a cream-colored, rocky head. Nose is dark fruit and malt with bourbon-ish traces. Sweet on the front of the tongue with additional smoky, whisky notes. Finish is short and abrupt. Not as deep or rich as I’d like. Different.
