The appearance is a nice medium/dark amber color. Very nice aroma. Nice malty smell to it. And the taste is very smooth and has great drinkability to it. Little malty, but good.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a rich, deep amber/gold color with a nice cream colored head. There is not a lot of lacing and the retention is a little lacking though. The aroma is excellent! This is what an Oktoberfest should smell like. Very large caramel aromas, backed with a nice grainy note. Very nice. Flavor is nice and rich, full f caramel malt. This beer is nice and smooth on the palate and I could see myself in a big tent drinking massive mugs full of this. Nice representation of a good marzen.

Golden amber (like autumn) with a tan head, deep aroma from the woods creates a wonderful ambience for expectant taste buds, but the flavor is overwhelmed by malt, whoa!!! A but of disappointment for a lefty like me, rooting for the eponymous brewery.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark orange with long lasting lt tan head. Had a hard time picking up aromas, but what I did get was sligtly malty. Sweet flavor with hints of carmel and malt. sweet, long finish. Medium body, slightly sticky. Not too bad, but something is missing in the malty flavor department that I’d expect in an oktoberfest.
