3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Bottle] Pours clear good with a small soapy beige head. The aroma is typical marzen - grainy, a little toasty, and some caramel. The flavor is not as sweet as I was expecting, aided by the fluffy carbonation. If this was a touch flatter or warmer, it would be not nearly as palatable as it is. It helps wash the sweetness off your tongue a little faster. Sub-par marzen overall.

Pour on tap, clear orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, toast into a bit of red fruit, touch of spice, herbal notes, hints of grain. Taste was a mix of caramel, bread, toast into a bit of spice, yeast, touch of red fruit, finishing slightly dry, slightly sweet.

I think this is one of the best beers Millstream Brewery makes! The rich malty flavor adds to the hint of caramelly roasted notes.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ home, courtesy of pepsican. Thanks! Pours a hazy dark orange appearance with a thin cream colored head. Somewhat metallic, caramel, light spice/nutmeg, toasted malty, vanilla aroma. A bit tangy/metallic, chewy toasted malty, rich cracker, herbal, slightly bitter hoppy flavor. Millstream has better German offerings.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at CID airport pub. Pour is a clear amber with a small but lasting white head. Aroma is faintly chemically up font with hints of roasted malt, faint nutty spice, and a light berry note. Flavor is true to nose with a pleasant, rich palate. Something is just a little off though and I think it may have to do with line cleanliness. An odd, faintly tart and fruity note lingers for a while.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled sample. Bright orange in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of whole wheat bread dough, bit of caramel, and wet stones. Quite bready in the mouth and not overly sweet, so no caramel bomb here. Medium bodied with a hint of earthy hop on the finish. A by-the-book Oktoberfest, but well executed.
