3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark clear amber with a ruby tint and a shallow head. Aroma is light, some nondescript malt.
Taste is roasty malt, almost like plain toasted whole-grain bread. Grainy flavors, light nuttiness, well-caramelized malts, seems like a blend of many. A mild sweetness and a faint oven-roasted, coffee-like presence. Not a strong hop presence at all.
Mouthfeel is medium to light, very smooth and easy to drink. Much maltier, more body than most US O-fests. Like drinking a piece of dry toast made from heavy bread.

Sampled at GABF 2015 in Denver. In the tasting glass was amber with off-white foam. Nose of rich caramel malts. Medium in body. Flavor is big malts with some fruit and nuts. Finishes spicy and clean. Pretty much to style and tasty.

Thought this was pretty good. No aroma to speak of. Nice copper and amber color. Full and somewhat weighted palate. Stronger malt flavors than expected with some nutty notes. Pleasantly surprised.

Pours an amber color with a medium white head. The aroma is of sweet malts. The taste is also sweet malts and mild spices. This beer is rather sweet, you pick up some caramel in the taste as well.

Aroma is on, appearance is right, taste is only ok though. Slightly sweet and malty but with a weird astringent thing going on for me with the hop profile. Not bad but other better oktoberfest beers out there.

Clear dark amber with a sticky thin light beige head. Aroma is kinda plain and biscuity, and lightly earthy sweet. Luckily the flavor is a little deeper, with nice marzen cracker/toffee/cereal/English muffin sweet maltiness. Dry amber finish.

Draft At Chilis in the DFW Airport The beer pours a clear amber with a thin wispy head which dissipates to a white collar. Very limited lacing. The taste was of sweet caramel with hints of hops. The medium body beer had soft carbonation. Nice beer true to the Marzen style Oktoberfest.
