Great oktoberfest. I am especially impressed with this beer compared to most of the others in the St. Arnold collection. Hoppy/yeasty initial impression, deep aber brown hue, wonderful hints of hops and strength as the beer progresses. Still maybe not quite up there with the best of the German ones, but its pretty good.

While it is no German Oktoberfest, it is a fantastic beer to look forward to every year. While in season, it is a staple in my fridge.

Rated based on notes taken 8 Oct 2012 -- Good Marzen. High on the Munich malt keeps this beer really sweet and delicious.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: clear amber orange, with half a finger of foamy, near white head and minimal lacing. Aroma: caramel malts, light toffee, a hint of honey and cereal and brown toast. Taste: as the aroma indicates, plus a bit of toasted nuts and a hint of grassy hops. Finish: crisp and slightly sweet, with just a bit of caramel and nuts and grass. Notes: Enjoyable Okto. Good palate, flavor was balanced, body was good. Solid all-around example. Bottle from Buddy’s (Drive-Thru!) Beer Barn in El Paso, Texas.
