3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle pours golden with a short creamy white head that stays fairly well and leaves some lace. Aromas of caramel, some bread, and some spicy german hops. Flavor is mostly malts, lots of caramel, a touch of toffee, toasted malts, and slight bitterness. Fair carbonation and a soft creamy mouthfeel. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear and slightly thin looking light copper body with a minimal fizzy off-white head. The nose is slightly sweet with a toasty and slightly nutty maltiness. There’s a slight chemical like note in here that I can’t quite identify, maybe it’s just an odd spin off from the hop bill though. The flavor is a little bit on the thinner side, but it’s pretty smooth and fairly well lagered. Finishes with some caramel and light roast with some minimal bitterness. Light bodied and a little thin with soft fizzy carbonation. Not bad, I could have a few of these before they get old.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Drought. Slightly hazy amber color with creamy beige head, very little doughy aroma hint of nutmeg, low carbonation, sweetish taste, abrupt finish. Nice but not remarkable for me.

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.
