3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Fiery amber, quite clear, moderate foamy off-white head, decent lacing, light carbonation.   Soft malty nose, seems slightly sweet, a little bit of honeycomb cereal.   Somewhat mealy on the tongue, certainly
malty, moderately sweet, clean, with a finish that lingers with sweet malts and a bit of creamed honey.   A pleasant sweet lager.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, even smooth and a bit creamy.   Only thing I would say that
detracts is its resemblance to a cereal.   Tone down the sweetness a bit and I think then we’ve got something.   Thanks toJah Noth for the bottle!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Taste 12/9 bottle. Looks: Cloudy red body with a thin top. Aroma: Grainy and yeast. Taste: A good marzen that doesn’t have the stickiness some of this style have. A flavorful beer that beats out most other marzens I’ve had for balance and finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from BevMo La Jolla. Pours a mostly clear orange amber with a fluffy off white head, some spotty lacing. Nose is pretty much your standard marzen, a little roasted malt, and light hop presence......this one had a very light touch of yeast. Flavor was roasty with a slightly metallic finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, copper colored body with a finger-width, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is some moderately sweet caramel malts and fruity, spicy hops. A light toasted bread and yeast too. Not bad at all. Flavor is quite impressive. A moderately sweet malt up front before a good amount of spiced fruits come in. Slightly bready malts and yeast as well as a good amount of toasty caramels. Finishes with a little more bitterness than most Oktoberfests, but blends nicely with some toasted malts and sweeter caramels. Lingers for a good amount of time after a medium to full, smooth body and mostly dry finish. Overall, a hoppy, yet malty and toasty Oktoberfest. Rich and smooth with lots of flavor. This was surprisingly good!
