3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Deep amber, frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Pale bready malts on the nose.   Similar tongue, a bit spicy.   Slight apple/pear skin.   Some whole wheat breadiness and very light nuttiness linger.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Almost nearing the thin side.   Somewhat boring, but fairly clean, albeit it does have that whole wheat bready aspect that if too strong can be difficult to drink.   Not as sweet or malty as others.   Meh... thanks Bill!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Semi hazy gold copper with a thin foamy white head. The aroma is biscuity and toasty as it should be, but with a bit more cracker than necessary. Flavor is creamy and biscuity with that earthy pseudo caramel marzen tone. Just tastes very run-of-the-mill.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown pour with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee with some nuttiness and biscuit malt thrown in. The flavor is also extremely malty. I get a lot of toffee and caramel notes as well as some grass and earth character. The alcohol is noticeable and a bit warming. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice marzen.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
A rich malt forward aroma and a clear deep copper pour supporting a white ring and minimal lacing. Toasted malts accompanied by a light sweetness are the predominate flavors. Notes of cereal/grain are present in the middle, followed by a traditional dry, none sweet, finish. Hops are here but their presence is subdued. Medium body with moderate carbonation. A light creamy mouthfeel. Overall, I enjoyed the robust tastes. Well balanced and drinkable.

Had on tap at Nobi pub, 1st Sunday of the month .. . Deep bark ruby brown ... Quite a big bitterness, some mild cooking caramel .. . Not bad but something didn’t quite mesh with me .. . . Mike Tyson hates chicken.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A deep brown beer with a red tint. Almost hard to believe its a lager given the haze. The head is a darker taupe and thins to a ring readily. The aroma is mostly malty but there’s a strong bitterness striving to break through. It tastes earthy, minerally, stoney starting off and develops a maltiness mid-way but then finishes surprisingly balanced. This is a good Oktoberfest like the Real Ale for my tastes. Its not a malt ball like all these Oktoberfests were for so long. Makes you wonder what the Germans really intended in many years gone past.
