Draught. Good malt aroma. No head. The flavour is nicely malty with a little sour hint. Seems slightly infected, but not too bad. Slightly spicy hop note.

My Bottom Line:
Toasted cereals and spicy hops coalesce in this quenching, simple Oktoberfest.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam surfs the hazy dark amber.
-The finish is quite forgettable, sadly. A tad underhopped?
-The crunchy malt profile makes for a nice body.
-The spiciness and prominent cereals made me hallucinate rye at times...

Bottle.

Bomber. Poured cloudy medium amber with a short, well-retained beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasted caramel and bready notes accented by rustic earth and leafy hoppage.. really well presented. The flavor found mostly caramel along with some bready notes and a hint of molasses at the core.. light malt-inspired sourness and a hit of dry earthy bitterness around.. a little more sour through the finish, along with some residual sugars. Medium-bodied with low-moderate carbonation on the palate.. tartness was a little odd, but seemed somewhat intentional (as opposed to many infected bottles I’ve had from the same brewer).. OK feel and flow. Not bad.

Pours a clear deep mahogany with a nicely-lacing white head. Malty sweet, authentic German aroma has some hints of noble hops. Starts with a nice, sweet malty palate, some grainy character and a touch of green, grassy hops. Finishes crisp. A good oktoberfest.

Bouteille de 22 oz partagée avec MartinT. Arôme: Légère odeur de caramel et d’houblons. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût de caramel fruité avec une pointe d’houblons. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement fruité. (Rating #3338)

Suttree (5144) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Brownish orange, thin ring of foam. Sweet aroma - some caramel, some fruity notes, too - like, maybe melon? maybe? Flavor is the expected caramel/toffee, play some fruityness like I smelled at first. Kinda odd, but tasty.

Earthy hops and large carmel malt aroma is appealing. Hazy amber-brown with thin, tan head that diminishes to ring. Earthiness and light spiciness in the flavour with some caramel sweetness and gentl bitterness in the finish. Body is medium but watery and a bit still and cloying. Bottle.

(22oz bottle) I had some guests visiting and they are a keen beer-exploration bunch so I cracked this out. It was supposed to be a marzen though I found the malt notes and nuttiness to be more becoming of a Brown Ale. It poured a beige creamy head and a amber-brown body. The nose carried notes of caramel malt and a honey sweetness. This was far better than I had expected... and a perfect follow-up to the Quelque Chose I previously fed them. Very impressed. Many thanks Muzzlehatch!

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2005 Jan 04: Bottled, 22 oz, unfiltered & bottled-conditioned. Very dark, cloudy-to-opaque, medium dying head. Powerful earthy-cedar-toffee nose, loads going on there. Flavor starts out a bit thin, but strong earthiness develops, with some nice hop hints at the end. Caramel, grass/hay, slight saltiness. Nice balanced fairly strong thick finish. Many of my friends thought the unfiltered overly-yeasty character worked against the style; I have mixed feelings about it, but I think this is worth a try. 7/3/7/4/14 3.5 Dec 05: This year’s model, or at least this bottle is pretty sour and lactic...the nose is still nice and earthy, bit smoky and nutty, but the body is vinous and disfigured by soured milk at the finish. Couldn’t finish it. Rating, for the moment, a combination of the two. 7/3/5/2 11 2.8

22oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours amber with a thick, light tan head. Aroma of caramel and cereal malts and some floral hops. Flavor about the same, with the malts really strong. Average texture. A decent beer of this style.
