2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass; though traditionally Oktoberfest beers are off the tap into a Maßkrug. Amber in color with light head. There seem to be a lot of bubbles.
Light aroma. Nothing really distinctive coming through, though I do not expect too much from this style... I still expected something.
Taste: Light malt, almost no bitterness or hops favor. Slightly sweet ending.
A little too carbonated. Crisp and light.
The carbonation drops its drinkability a little. Other than that it is a nice drink, but nothing to search out for.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours amber in color with a white head. Taste sweet, Carmel. I thought this was good. I could drink this again.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12floz/355ml bottle into a mug. Served cold.
Aroma: Malty for sure. Almost a little fruity too, like honeydew. Mildly sweet. Kind of yeasty.
Appearance: Clear, amber body with a fluffy, small, white head. Decent lacing.
Taste: Caramel, some sweetness. Barely any bitterness. Just malt, no hop bite. Good stuff.
Palate: Light-medium body, pretty short and malty-sweet finish.
Overall: It’s no Dead Guy or Salvator, but it’s a pretty good Marzen. Approachable for new craft beer drinkers.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a bottle. Pours clear copper gold with a thin fizzy white head. Tastes like malt, a little bit sweet and nutty, a little bit musky. Low/medium body and carbonation. Not much aroma. Faint malt and musk.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber with creamy off-white head. Aroma is biscuit and cereal malts, light toast, light caramel, and some faint raisin. Flavor is pretty boring with some bready malts and a touch of caramel sweetness; dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Botte. Pours the color of pee with a think head. Sweet aroma and flavor. Mild spices. Nice bitter finish. However, this is where things go drastically sideways. For some reason, there is a nasty metallic taste in the finish. If it wasn’t for that, I would say this was just your average seasonal Marzen.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle pours with a very thick white head and a deep golden tan body. Taste of sweet caramel and malted barley. A little more bitter than I was expecting. Fairly average seasonal.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper with rapidly settling, coarse white head. No lacing. Aroma is sweet, malty, mild toffee. Flavor is sweet, mild malt, with a bitter, slightly off finish. Moderate carbonation, light body, and watery texture. Mild, not so good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle gift. Thin body. Mild aromas and flavor of caramel malt and spice. Not a bad brew, but could use a bit more umph!
