Coppery orange in color. A bit of a sweet malt aroma that changes to corn tortillas. Clean flavor of sweet cereal malt; almost creamy like, followed by a slight hoppy aftertaste. Overall, for a Marzen it’s OK. Very drinkable, but nothing too exciting.

I love the way these beer can bring me forward to fall in the midst of August! Pristine, clear amber color. Off white head pours on at 2 inches settles to a solid film soon enough. Vienna malt for sure. Delicious malty flavor, mostly full but not annoyingly heavy like others marzens. Leaves, love and fall air is what this beer bring to your table, or lawn chair. Crisp fi ish with a touch of delicious hazelnut.

Clean aroma of bread, nuts, sweet maltyness. Pours clear copper with a minimal white head. Medium sweetness, a balanced finish, with no noticable bitterness or hops. Bodie is medium, with a thin texture. Overall a good Oktoberfest that is very tasty.

12oz bottle. A nice clear orange with a smallish head at first that fades to a thin rim of foam, along with a little lacing. Aroma is sweet and caramelly. Flavor brings some nice rich caramelly malt with just a little bit of spiciness and very restrained hop character. Really nice smooth palate. Just a very enjoyable Oktoberfest. I’d happily drink a few more of these...

12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured transparent light orange color with tan shading, low carbonation, one finger + foamy white head formed and lasted throughout the tasting. Aroma of a wheat malt, with notes of caramel and grass. Hits the mouth with medium body, malt has a touch of caramel, middle holds up fine, finish is solid with a very light note of bitterness. Good brew, and my 100th Texas brew that I have sampled. Hmm, I wonder what could be beer 101 from Texas...

Poured from bottle. Rich nose with caramel, fruit, and toast intermingled. Pours a brilliant orange-gold. Roast and brown sugar up front, with a clean bitter finish. Good.

12oz bottle from Spec’s in Austin. The newest Real Ale release in bottles and, as is the custom in Texas, the label has the prerequisite TABC nonsense on it: "Malt Liquor." Poured a clear, light amber body topped with some soapy head that sticks around quite a while. Aroma is lightly malty sweet, grassy hops, a little funky and some biscuit. Flavors of bready malt, some toffee, roasty, toasted nuts and slightly grassy/herbal hopps in the end. Fairly clean finish leaves you looking for that next sip. Medium mouthfeel and active carbonation. Solid effort. I’m looking forward to drinking more of this when the weather is more O-Fest like.

Tried on tap at the Rockwall Flying Saucer. Pours orangish amber, about like you would expect an Oktoberfest to look. Smell is malty with a little sweetness. Taste is similar. Not the best Oktoberfest out there, but a good representation of the style that will not disappoint you.

A very appealing O-fest. Creamy mouthfeel with wonderful malty goodness. TBS- the malt is not overt in any way, but restrained and subtle. A lovely beer that I wish had been around a few weeks ago when O-fest were what I was craving.
