2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Starts with a doughy, bready aroma. Medium amber color -light for the style. Sweet syrupy taste, no much going on for hops. Light body feel - consistency of a draught soft drink. Porbably the last of these I’ll have before the fall, and not a bad one.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. This bottle is a little old which is a caveat on this rating. The aroma is very faintly of malts and caramel. The appearance is golden caramel with a very thin head on the pour. The taste is all malt a faint metallic finish. It is a little thin on the palette for the style. Overall a middling Marzen at best.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong aroma is crisp and malty with a fruity undertone, mainly apple plus some pear. Pours a clear, bubbly amber with a thick, fluffy ivory head. Malty flavor has hoppy and fruity hints, typical but still pleasing. Smooth texture has a fair amount of tingle and firmness. Prost!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a translucent gold with a thin, white head that quickly fades. Weak lacing. Subtly sweet aroma. Lightly effervescent mouthfeel. Unobtrusive, bordering on weak, flavor. Neither offensive nor memorable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy yellow orange color with lots of effervescents. Thin white lacing. Classic musky aroma with a slight green/citrus note. Smooth palate with a crisp finish. Bitter finish sticks around a little longer than most other Oktoberfest style beers. Good but not great for the style.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Sharp Edge in Pittsburgh. Pours a clear yellow-orange with a small white head. The aroma and flavor are both light, but more so the nose. Notes of crackers, straw, toast, bread, caramel, and a hint of grass. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp mouthffeel. Not much to it.
