3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Variety pack bottle. Aroma was mild, hoppy and slightly floral. Great pour, and the head stayed thick and present for a long time. Flavors were roasty, with cereal and grain dominant. Hopps were present in the flavor. Pleasant to the palate. I loved the quality of this beer, which for the price, is just fantastic. I am not afraid to rate this beer higher in the overall category. Its not anywhere near the most flavorful marzen I have had, but still, for the value, I will buy this again.

Bottle; poured a clear amber color with a frothy white head. Aroma of wet bread, grain and a bit of off fruit. Flavor was just really bland; not overtly offputting, but very bland even for the style. Not any sweetness or caramel notes. Dry. Not very good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 09240-DEO6. The pour is a rich amber-copper with a thin head. The aroma is slightly malted and has a hint of caramel in there. But it is somewhat appetizing. Medium mouthfeel. The taste is balanced with malts, caramel, and bitter hops. Overall it is mildly enjoyable.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Typical Marzen in appearance, dark copper body with with a whitish creamy head. A very pronounced metallic aroma. Tasted better than it smelled. Not bad for a mass-produced American Octoberfest. I enjoyed it.

Looks like a normal Oktoberfest at the pour but it ends there. Aroma is pure yeast, and the flavor is watered down and not much different from any other mass produced lager. Glad I only bought a single.
