typical octoberfest beer. Malty, easy drinking and good with bbq. nothing offensive about this one, but doesn’t have the malt depth of some others.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy orange with a medium tan head. Nose is creamy malts and faint grassy hops, oregano. Nice, sweet nutty malt backbone quickly changes to an interesting spicy and yeasty middle, with grassy hops notes. Slight caramel/toffee aftertaste. Rather bitter for a Marzen. Creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a rich, clear, dark honey-brown with a thin but somewhat persistent head. Aroma is strong, malty and spicy - I got hints of cloves and cinnamon - with a touch of hops. Flavor is rich, mouth-filling, mainly malty, with spicy undertones. Smooth and very pleasing, this is an excellent autumn beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Digging this style right now. It really fits the cooling weather and mood’s I’ve been in lately. Mossy malty aroma. Clear amber color with little to no head. Slightly sweet with that candy sugar and caramel flavor. Slight hop bitterness. Thin but interesting enough for me to enjoy.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle. immaculate, almost over-compensating head, it pours like an okt’fest; deep, true amber hue, crystal clear. aromas of yeasts and malts, like a true lager. there’s a little yeasty nutmeg and curry powder here, as well as a typical okt’fest; also, dark ripe fruits. taste is a bit airy, of unsweet toffee and slight nutty flavor as well. yeasts are here, as are mild malts. it tastes like a concoction of fall and, well...october. kudos, Left Hand!
