2003 on tap at Ray's in Kent, OH. Starts somewhat sweet, caramel, smooth. Gets hoppy towards the finish.

Redhooks best offering. So thick and richly malty (had on tap) with a nice hoppy bite to it. Comes close to being as good as some Germans. Being this good means they’ll probably axe it or change the recipe like they did with the Double Black Stout.

On tap at McG’s in the ’hem. A decent tho uncharacteristic Marzen. I did enjoy it thoroughly. Definitely worth a second try.

goz (359) - Chelmsford, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 3, 2003
Pours a deep amber/reddish color with a small tan head that mostly diminishes, leaving small lacing. Aroma is mostly sweet, lots of caramel, backed with a slight hoppiness. Flavor is dominated by caramel, a slight breadiness shows as well, and a mild hoppiness finishes it all off. Medium body, easy drinking.

nothing special about this very hoppy and somewhat strange tasting ale. I have had alot better october beers, but this will do when nothing else is available.

One of the best Octoberfest style beers I’ve had. Easily better than Sam or Pete’s offerings. Couldn’t find it in the store, only found it once on tap at a resteraunt. I’ll take a trip to the Portsmouth brewery next season to make sure I get some.
