3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to Ksurkin. Aroma is light caramel, stale hops, some bread. Caramel color. Flavor is just lacking a bit. It’s decent with some bready caramel notes in there.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was a great American-style marzen. The taste followed the aroma with deep bready malts and a semi-sweet toffee undertone.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle, which was an extra from OKBeerFan. Thanks! To stein, it pours a copper orange with a sudsy, trim off-white head barely 1 fingernail in length. Aromas straightaway of wheat bread, Vienna malt, German noble hops, cornmeal, and faint unripe raspberries. Tastes the same. Better than expected.

Pours a hazy amber with a nice off white head. Aroma is caramel with sweet malt. Also some nuttiness. Medium bodied and fairly sweet. Nice easy drinking beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Spice and malt aroma. The taste is the same, very watery, very bland. Pretty decent, but bland. 6% alcohol.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A - Pours a light orange/amber color. Slightly hazed with a brief 1 finger head.
S - Grainy, wet straw, woody, lots of lager yeast,
T - Earthy and grainy dryness upfront, hops are grassy and spicy, sweetness slowly creeps in with notes of toasted caramel. Finishes dry and spicy with hints of orange peel.
M - Medium body, good carbonation, dry.
Great tasting beer but the malt struggles to shine. Nice hop profile and good carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle. About six months old, so freshness might be an issue. Pour is very nice, a rich copper with about a finger of off-white head and lots of activity. Nose is notably metallic, though not necessarily unpleasant. Taste is fairly nondescript. Nice body for a lager, however. Not my favorite Okto nor my favorite Marshall.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours orange with an off white head. Aroma is sweet grainy malt. Flavor starts malty caramel, then there is an unpleasant bitterness that remains throughout the finish.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle. Smells foul. Little head burns off quick, nothing notable about the appearance. Tastes unpleasant for the style - the worst I’ve had, actually. A swing and a miss for Marshall. I’ll try next year’s, maybe.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear light brown with a white head. Aroma of caramel and spices. Taste is caramel and spices with a hop bite. Very good just a bit thin. On par with Sam Adams octoberfest.
