4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Presentation: It was poured from a 12 oz can into small German style mug. The can lists the abv at 5.5% abv and there is a short description of the beer as well.
Appearance: The color is a beautiful deep orange amber with great clarity and plenty of visible carbonation. From the aggressive pour I got a tall, white and frothy head. It settles down fairly quick and just maintains a wispy thin film covering. Lacing is minimal and very slick.
Smell: It has a very malty nose with earthy hops for balance. Mostly I pick notes of caramel, toffee, fresh bread
Taste / Palate: The flavor is classic German lager all the way. It has a fresh bready maltiness loaded with a nutty, caramel and nougat like character. Hops adds a light earthy dryness and bitterness. The feel is right on for the style and very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was often poured into a mug but it has also been poured into pint glasses and pilsener glasses and it’s always looked the same.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy amber color with a one finger white foamy head that dies within about a minute. There was some light speckled lacing the sides and it leaves some rings.
The smell was nice and malty, slight roast with some nuts to it.
The taste was mainly sweet but had a nice roasty nuttiness to it.
The p was about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionable aspect about it.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good Oktoberfest styled beer worthy of having again.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty good beer, but only slightly edges out the plain old lager that this brewery is famous for…. Not great for a marzen, but I gave it an extra point in the "overall" category for being available in the pint can format that they use for all their products. Next time Ill get the Narragansett porter instead : )

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
poured from can, deep golden color with red tint. extremely sweet flavor, strong taste of carmel and spices. slight bitter after taste. even with the heavy sweet flavor, an above average beer worth trying, but certainly not the best marzen ive had.
