12 ounce bottle from Woodman’s on Gammon Road in Madison, WI, served in a Flying Fish pint glass. Moderate-to-large head dies with some haste atop the hazy dark amber body...lightly smoky, toasty aroma with some odd pungent characteristics - potatoes newly pulled from the earth with a touch of onion...fairly sweet initially, lots of brown-sugar-caramel-ly malt, in the middle there’s a little raisiny something going on, dries out somewhat towards the lightly toasty/burnt finish, no hop presence to speak of...full-bodied, slightly syrupy, low to moderate soft carbonation. While not quite a total failure, with this brewery’s customary rich unfiltered texture well displayed, it is a disappointment. Then again Oktoberfest season has never been one of my favorites, beer-wise.

I had this on a nitro tap at Riverwest Filling Station in Milwaukee, so perhaps it was much smoother than on a CO2 tap. This was a smooth, malty, easy drinking Marzen - very little hop taste.

Atom (2170) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2015
12oz bottle pours a dark clear Amber/brown with a small khaki head. Aroma of caramel malt, nutty, with some yeast, pretty light overall. Dry yet sweet caramel malt, lightly nutty, some hop bitterness, yeast. Simple yet unbalanced none the less.

Aroma is dark fruit, mild sweetness and malts. The flavor is dark fruit/grapes, malts, fruit and a tart/mildly sweet finish.

On draft at Keva sports Center. This one has had some ups and downs for me. Keva is not a beer place so it is this of Lite beer, so this wins every time. This one went from OK to not bad. Might be the setting...

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2016 Poured at a good temperature with a smallish, very light tan head that settles out and a bit of lace. Color is a red amber with no bubble trails. Aroma is malt, barn, a bit of skunk and solvent. Flavor’s much better with rich malt, enough carbonic tang and hop/yeast bitter to balance the malt sweet and a bit of roast to top it off. Body & carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, average length and drinkable. I’d have another. This was a gift from friend Paul B; thanks man! Edit: their newest edition - aroma is much better, more toasted malt and same for flavor. Sweet up front and bittersweet (a little more bitter than sweet) in the finish. Soft carbonation. Color is an amber brown. Decent enough brew.

A maltier than normal version of a marzen. Nothing special but somewhat enjoyable yet.

HonkeyBra (4036) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Pours a very dark amber-- very dark for an octoberfest -- with a thin tan head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, mild nutty notes. Flavor is rich, hearty, and crisp. Nice toffee and nutty notes. Very drinkable. Finishes with a bit of herbal and grassy hops. Medium bodied. Pretty nice.
