3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright amber, mild sweet aroma, filtered appearance, small but lasting head unlike the Point Amber, good lasting lacing to the end. Excellent overall sweet flavor, not hoppy, great drinkability for all day festivals in New Braunfels like wurstfest. Great flavor and lighter body.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours light copper with a pretty good-sized head. Very little aroma beyond some vaguely earthy and toasty malts. Taste of yeast, bread, and toast. Light and crisp and creamy. Not a wower, but it hits all the basic examples of the style. Pleasant, easy drinker on a hot day.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours with a standard-looking amber hue and a tight head of white foam. The aroma is soapy, macro-like. This drinks with a hint of toasty malt and a sweet maltose/biscuit finish. Falls flat. (#4823, 11/18/2012)

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Acceptable marzen Oktoberfest. Pretty standard for the genre, amber colored pour with a balanced, perfectly sessionable lager. Despite, it’s still forgettable.
