I had this at Global Brew. Pours amber with a white head. Taste Carmel, smokey. I thought this was good. I could drink this again.

355ml bottle. Pretty generic Oktoberfest. Some nice malts and herbal hops, but nothing that makes it stand out.

Bottle. This is a pretty flimsy Marzen. Nothing super special here. Grab an Ayinger.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: I got lazy and enjoyed straight from the bottle, but I Googled me a pic ... doesn’t look much like an Octoberfest. A bit light. Nice lacing in the bottle.
Smell: Well, it’s an amber. Not shy, and gets you with the malts. The hops are certainly in there, but you can get an idea of what kind of beer this is just from a quick whiff. Pretty good stuff.
Taste/feel: As an Octoberfest, it’s average. As an amber, it’s average. To me, this tastes quite a bit like Boston Lager, but missing a certain "oomph" that Sam Adams puts in that beer. This is still a pretty nice beer, and I wouldn’t mind having myself another. A nice bit of malts, and a refreshing beer all the way. I dig it.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Presentation: 12 oz. brown bottle with no freshness date. Bottle cap reads: "Be True. Be You." Served in a steidel.
Appearance: Very clear, dark amber color. Almost a finger of head, that quickly fizzles out into a thin ring. No lacing on the glass.
Smell: Not aromatic at all. Slight hints of malt and hops, but that’s about it.
Taste: Quite malty with a helping of hop bitterness. A bit of sweetness in there as well with an overall smoky taste.
Mouthfeel: Not that much carbonation. It’s medium bodied and creamy.
Overall: Not the best seasonal out there, but it’s not like Magic Hat was out to knock everyone out. It’s certainly one of the more interesting ones available. Definitely worth a try.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A little bit of smoke aroma in this brings it above the average for style, but still the taste overall comes off a bit weird. Pours clear copper. Average carbonation, sticky consistency. Aftertaste a little sweet and odd - seems slightly off just like their #9. Bottle from Smoke it Cigars in San Juan.
