2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle pours a clear amber with a small white head and a little lacing. Aroma is mostly caramel malts, with some vanilla and a bit of grass. Finish has a light citrus touch. Body is light to medium without much carbonation. As the start of the name implies, it’s OK, but I won’t search for this next fall. Thankfully, I only paid $6 for a 6-pack.

I bought this in the bottle from Total Wine in Henderson, NV. Mild tasting marzen well balanced malt and hops, not my favorite Oktoberfest but a decent beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear amber. Some hops and even a little bit of sourness on the palate. A pretty standard marzen but a bit more hops than others I have tried.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Twist off Bottle via UDBeernut in box with returned growlers. A pleasant deep orange in tall glass with a thick white healthy head. Sweet malt, grass and tubas in the nose. Body is central with malt light graininess, and a bit wishy-wahsy water. Accordions and lederhosen optional. Body meanders back onto path for a crisp quick finish that leads directly to the next sip.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Cleam amber brew with light head. Aroma of caramel, malt, hay, bread. Taste is sweet malt at the start with a little grass and floral hops in the finish. Still sweet at the end, but not overwhelming as this is overall rather thin and weak. Average pallate. A little sticky in the finish. Quaffable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
six pack from the local rip and run. Twist off cap, glad I used electrical tape for Mr. Coldbrewky. Pours a lovely translucent amber capped by a billowy off white head with good retention. Nose has a nice bread character. Taste follows in order with light bitterness and flowers. Body is a bit weak and watery. Tasty and easy drinking none the less.
