3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a beautiful caramel amber with medium to large frothy creamy white head, mostly lasting. Aroma is toasty, sweet, bready. Flavor has same character, adds a little spicey/rye note. Some earthiness. Lighter side of medium body. Clean, smooth, and tasty. Very drinkable. Creamy. Great balance. Nicely put together.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet malt, toasty. Tastes very sweet and malty as well. Not as complex as most new glarus but still decent

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good but not great. Good copper color and bright, clean taste - especially the finish. Malt forward, though subtle.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours orange/amber color with large white head that dissipates gradually. Light toastiness up front. Slight sweetness on the finish. Not bad, definitely better Oktoberfest/marzen beers out there

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy orange with a bit less than a finger of stark white slowly dissipating head. Lightly toasted oats in the nose. Ends up with a pretty thin mouthfeel that fades into a slightly sickly sweetness aftertaste. Not my favorite from here

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Apple juice color with no head. Sweet aroma, a little bit of mustiness, and coke. Sweet flavors and grainy. I was kind of expecting more out of our friends at New Glarus.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of bready grain, same taste with enough hop bitterness to make it pleasing enough. I haven’t tried much in the way of Octoberfest beers (planning to try some now that they’re releasing), so I don’t have a comparison. Glad I tried it.
