Light amber pour with an off whit head. Aroma of citrus and light hops. Medium light body, accompanied by a brisk, crisp palate. Flavor is lacking, however.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I haven’t had previous LH Oktoberfests, but this one was quite nice! 12oz pours a hazy dark reddish amber with a moderate off-white head. Aroma is an enticing mixing of honey biscuits, caramel, and sweet dark fruits. Flavors are deep and powerful, with loads of sweetness ranging from light caramel and lightly toasted nuts to bread dough to molasses and raw sugar. Smooth and sweet malty finish, one of the better American festbiers!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep golden to amber color with a large, pillowy head that disappears completely. Aroma is of caramel and general malt. Caramel malts up front and leaning towards a fairly clean, lightly bitter finish. Light in body. A good beer, but nothing to get excited about outside of the visual impression.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours light amber with a frothy white head. Aroma is mostly grainy malts with a little bit of hops. Nice slight hoppy bitterness in the flavor, but mostly slightly metallic bread/grainy malts. Medium bodied with a much nicer mouth feel than expected.

Draught Amber copper pour with a small head, great lacing. Light malty aroma with a thicker maltier flavor. Smooth and thick mouth feel. Pretty decent session brew.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle. Aroma of sweet cookie, cherries, and a mild earthy and citrus lemon. Pretty uninteresting pour, minor head, fairly light with some slow carbonation and a decent looking scarlet-orange color. The flavor overall was not the best and did not balance out very well for me, very sweet with cherry syrup, caramel cookie, and a minor citrus-lemon hop into the finish, too thick of a feel to go with the pretty watered down flavor. Honestly, not very impressed with this one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dusty aroma of dark bread and pear candies.
Flavour combines some very nice medium full malts with a hoppy finish. Nice balance, nice session, nice autumn beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle poured medium brown and orange with an off white head. Probably too dark fro a marzen. Vegetal aroma and when drank slightly herbal hop bitterness and caramel. Slightly thick for my liking, but a decent marzen.
