2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
THOUGHTS: OK, but nothing special. A little sticky and cloying up front and rather metallic in the finish.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy, medium to dark, brownish orange with an average, off-white head that kept a decent sheet and left good lacing. The aroma was moderate dark bread and caramel; light floral and grassy hops; honey and slight citrus. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and slightly bitter; while the finish was light to moderately sweet, slightly acetic, and ligh to moderately bitter with a short to average duration. There was caramel malt, molasses, maple syrup, grassy hops, dark toasted bread, and slightly burnt toast. The light to medium body was slightly syrupy with tingly carbonation and a metallic finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of fresh bread and malty sweetness. This is a dry and flavorful marzen, well balanced, and with an astringent finish. A very nice Oktoberfest release that is underrated, imo.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not one of the better Oktoberfest beers out there, but itís palatable. It pours a copper color with a nice-sized tan head. The head leaves some good lacing around the inside of the glass. The nose features some toasted malts, caramel, barley and some dry hops. The flavors are predominately malty with some dry and fruity hops thrown in for good measure. The finish is a little on the sweet and sour side, which puts me off to this beer a bit. But itís still a decent beer to celebrate the upcoming fall season with.
