The aroma is lightly malty with caramel notes. The head is average creamy and off-white. The body is clear and amber. Taste is short lived and lightly bitter. The palate is medium body with creamy texture and average carbonation. Overall, this is a good Marzen to kick off the fall season.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: 12 oz bottle, 9/9/13
Aroma: The nose is sweet and malty, caramel, some orange/citrus, and not much else
Appearance: This one pours a caramel-orange color with an off-white head
Flavor: This beer has an alright flavor, it’s medium sweet, lots of malty flavor, with minimal bitterness
Palate: It has a pretty decent mouthfeel, it drinks clean, and just feels fine overall
I thought this was an alright example of a style that I almost never feel is better than alright. What else can you say here? This beer is fine.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very nice looking, orange and clear with a great big lasting head that left nice lacing.
Aroma is not real strong but has a nice grainy and caramel malt character. Flavor is a little more notable, with a good caramel flavor, a solid maltiness, and maybe a touch of diacetyl.
Body is medium and pretty refreshing and easy to drink. Overall it’s pretty much what you expect when you get an octoberfest, even if not particularly outstanding.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours with rapidly faded head to none, no lacing. Good general sweet malt flavor, sweet. No hop action. Color is half orange amber average filtered look. If you like a little sweet and tame you will like this. Not a bold Oktoberfest brew but drinkable. Price point risky at 9 bucks six pack.

A decent beer that tastes very light at first but has a nice caramel finish. The color is almost like honey and it’s easy to drink.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Beer pours a very clear orange-amber with a thin off-white head and no lacing. Aroma is very sweet with notes of caramel, malt, and some kind pumpkin spices. Taste overall is very subtle with minor hoppiness and quick finish. Very drinkable. Moderate carbonation with very little lingering effect.
