Cask at Capital Ale House. Medium to darm amber, lovely tan head with just a sheet of lace. Slightly bitter dirt aroma. Caramel malt, oddly bitter earthen finish, very light floral note as well. Ultimately couldn’t get into the sort of gritty dirt hop flavor this seemed to possess. Interesting htough.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a clear amber color with a slight off-white head. The nose has hints of toast, caramel, and apple. The flavor is light, slightly fruity and has toasted malt notes. There is a lingering bitterness on the back end. Medium bodied. Serviceable.

12 oz. bottle purchased @ Beer Heaven. Color is nearly clear amber without much head or retention. Nose is sweet caramel and has a grainy element. Taste has sweet caramel grains with an Earthy, dank hop. Has a bit of nuttiness. Mouthfeel / texture are a bit syrupy. Medium body for the style with soft carbonation. Overall, if you like this style sweet, here is a decent one.

KSBF07. Pour was amber in color, weak head. Aroma was woodsy (I got on a woodsy kick at this fest?), toasted caramel. The flavor was toasted caramel, light nuts, woodsy, and a weird spicey hoppy almost burnt type blended aftertaste, odd. Not a great example of the style.

Blah. A subpar Oktoberfest. I call it that because I live in PA and have a bias. Aroma was nil. Pour was a too light gold with a thin white ring for a head. Taste was like a vienna except not much malt. Not much anything for that matter.

20081002 12oz bottle, Spirits RB. Basic copper color with creamy beige head that lingers. Aroma is full of diacetyl, some earthy hops. Nice eff, medium bodied. Pretty sweet, none of the spicy bite I’d hope for from either a lager or a marzen. Sub par.
