The quintessential Ueberseasonal. Everybody gets excited when the leaves change color and the nights get cooler. Not because it’s fall...the real reason is that they know Mecktoberfest is coming.

A good Octoberfest, but average by most standards. Very sessionable. A good beer to share with friends.

Approximately 5 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s taproom in Charlotte, North Carolina. Consumed on 9-21-15. Pours a light copper with beige/cream head. Good lacing. Attractive appearance. Buttery, creamy, fruity aroma. The butter aspect probably derives from diacetyl, but I don’t find diacetyl offputting. Low in flavor. Sweet. Just a bit of hops dryness in the finish. Otherwise, remarkably low in hoppiness. Red apple taste. Light body for the style. Smooth in the palate. Overall, pleasant enough but poorly made and definitely not my kind of beer.

Meh. Nothing to write home about. Just a mediocre beer. Nothing offensive, which if that’s the best you have to say about a beer "Nothing offensive" that should say something...

Sample in a flight at the OMB biergarten. Dark copper color, with a thin, off-white head. Nose is orange peel, caramel, gin, and a little rye. Sweet and malty, with a significant bitterness that is uncharacteristic for the style. Light to medium body, chalky, and a little astringent. This is a fair attempt at an Maerzen, but is overhopped.

ben4321 (5420) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Location: Draft at CLT, 11/25/14

Aroma: The nose is light caramel and bready malts, some grainy notes, and mild hops
Appearance: This one appears amber in color, some golden notes, with an off-white head on top
Flavor: The taste is mid-sweet, not overly sweet, bread/grains with a light balancing hop bitter
Palate: The body is light-medium, fairly easy drinking, with a mid-plus carbonation
Overall Impression: I had a few of these on draft over the "season," with pretty much all of those being in the airport. It always left me the same impression, which is that it is not bad for OMB, and it is probably better than their flagship copper that you find everywhere, but it isn’t anything exciting. (Note: I have the copper rated as a 3.3, but that is from 2012, and I haven’t felt the same about it when I’ve had it recently. It probably needs a re-rate, and I’d probably have it more in the high 2s to 3 range if I rated it today.)

A golden Marzen with a thin light mocha head. In aroma, sweet nutty caramel malt with light German grassy hops. In mouth, a sweet fruity caramel malt with light nutty note, pleasant, if a bit ordinary. On tap at brewery.

Tap @ Carolina Beer Co. Light amber with a cream white head. Attractive. Nose is a bit off-putting. Unwashed old dish towel with a bit of candy corn and caramel-dipped apples. Bread. Taste is more palatable. Sweet bread, sugar. Mellow straw dryness on the finish. Light body, soft carb. OK.

Draft at the Charlotte airport. Yay business travel. Poured a medium to light amber orange, slight head. Aroma slight of toasted malt. Flavor matched - balancing bitterness, appropriate lack of hop flavor. Actually very clean and nicely done, very much to style. Good job guys.
