3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz. bottle from the brewery. Aroma of lightly toasty, bready and sweet malts, lightly herbal and spicy hop, as well as some leafy, lightly earthy and fruity notes in the background. Clear light amber in color with a lasting, fine, off-white head. Flavor profile is comprised of lightly sweet, toasty, biscuity malts, featuring a hint of caramel along with a touch of spicy, leafy hop flavor, touch of pear-like fruitiness and a light-moderate dosage of bitterness towards the finish. Incredibly clean and smooth with an almost airy feel and a light-medium body. Excellent example of the style, refined yet minimal, well-balanced and very drinkable. Good as any Oktoberfest one is likely to find.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from the Brat Stop. Rich copper color. Aroma is light spice and barley. Taste is mellow...More yeast spiciness followed by a slightly tangy finish. Body is very thin, carbonation is light, needs more bite. Ok.

10/16/13 trade from Jamil. Overall, a great octoberfest. Low point was the weak grain tart scent. Appearance was a golden copper beauty. Crisp light feel. Nice mellow grain tart malt flavor. A nice Autumn brew.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange with a tint of gold in color. Head dissipated very quickly. Creamy colored collar persists. Smell is mostly tangy orange with some faint leather notes. Taste is of citrus and spice (think coriander, ginger, and clove). Mouthfeel is probably my favorite thing about this beer. Light, yet full; despite the low amount of head, the carbonation is enjoyable. I’m enjoying New Glarus more and more with every brew I have from them; however, this is the first one that hasn’t wowed me.

12 oz bottle. (New Glarus Brewery) New Glarus, WI.
Clear deep golden colour with a small off-white head.
Strong dry malty aroma with some honey sweetness and mild hops.
The flavour is very grainy malty. Mild hops and dryness.
Very much German style Märzen. Not my favourite style but this one is well brewed.
