3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a transparent copper amber with a thin ring of white head. Sweet grainy caramely German malty nose has a touch of noble hoppiness. Body starts lightly sweet with some hay and earthy notes and some caramel toward a thinner finish. Pretty true to style and drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I love the aroma to this one. Sweet malts jump out of the glass. Like the aroma, the flavor is malt with some toffee. A brandy essence is present. Overall flavor is a little thin.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Hazy amber, fairly dark, moderate off-white foamy head, fairly nice lacing, very light carbonation.   Combo of malts and grains on the nose.   Slight pellet food as well.   Pale malt start, grainy but not too bad.   Rather boring.   Needs to be maltier and a bit sweeter.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Husky finish, slightly malty.   Not bad, but not very interesting.   Thanks for the freebie Eric!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle courtesy of pepsican. Pours copper with a white head. Smells of dry malt and doughy. Tastes sweet and malty with a sugary finish.

Darker amber color with a head that subsided rapidly. Caramel aroma. Mellow sweet malt flavors, lightly buttery, ending with just a tingle of bitter.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a deep reddish amber color with a very small off white head. Sweet malt, raw straw aroma. Taste was very malty, wheaty bite. Overall not a whole lot going on here at all.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is dark brown with a reddish tint. Small head with absolutely no retention. Little carbonation. Aroma is light (no head to help with no aroma) - slightly sweet and roasted malt. Taste is roasted malts from the aroma with a bit of sweetness. Very light mouthfeel with no carbonation. Finish is lighty toasted malt. For something that is suppose to be an Octoberfest this is a poor representation. Not offensive, but very boring.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear light amber body with a small fizzy light beige head that faded to a wispy film. Fairly minimal aroma of toasted malt, cereal grains, and a touch of hops. The flavor is mildly sweet with a toasty maltiness up front and a light crisp bitterness on the finish. Slightly grainy and a little thin, it does drink pretty easily. Mouthfeel is a little watery and thin with moderate fizzy carbonation. Not the best amongst the style, but drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2004 2004 bottle compliments of MilkmanDan. Deep red color, clear and filtered, no head. Toffee aroma, coppery and yeasty. Starts out very sour and yeasty, light caramel. Medium and made with a good amount of water but yet not ridiculously thin. Some light sweetness on the end. Surprisingly pretty good and reminiscent of an alt with all of the yeast copper and sweetness in the middle. It works as a marzen though it’s a sweet version of one, with not as much graininess. Didnt find much in the way of spicy hops.
