3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear light brown brew with pale off white head. Dense head upon pouring, settles to a half a finger of persistent foam. Great lacing. Aroma of nuts, caramel, lightly toasted malt. Taste is moderate caramel and a rich nuttiness, ends with a moderate noble hops flourish that slakes any lingering sweetness. Full and satisfying palate. A superior Oktoberfest/Marzen.

Tasted blind: This is a cloudy dark amber brew. It’s got a big earthy nose w/ some toasty malt as well. This is grassy and herbal, fairly dry and slightly nuttey. Its creamy carbonation is complimented by mild bitterness in the finish. This is a tasty Oktoberfest.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle, reminds me of the fest beers that I used to get in Germany. Golden brown in color with a sweet malty taste at first, then just the right amount of hops to give a slight bitter finish. Nice head retention.

Aroma is mostly yeast, taste ads some sweet fruits and fall spices that cannot be noted in the aroma. Taste is much better than the aroma, fine for style

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice super hazy amber and brown coloured body with a thinnish, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, earth, mushrooms and a bit of earthy malt. Medium-bodied; Strong malty and earthy flavours at first with a definite caramel and toffee flavour coupled with the light hops and rich malt. Aftertaste is nice and rich with a lot of caramel and a ton of earth - pungent and strong for the style. Overall, a nice rich marzen with a big earthy character and a decent amount of caramelised sugars. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased in a six pack from Siciliano’s in Grand Rapids, Michigan on 11-September-2015 sampled while visiting in Northville, Michigan later in the day.

355ml bottle. Poured into a perfect pint. Dar amber color, off-white head. Aroma almost milky bready toasted caramel. Flavor is roastier and toastier for an oktoberfest, plenty of hops too, caramel, bread, interesting Amero-take.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from notes. Pours a clear amber brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, caramel, some earthy notes and light citrus, some cocoa, decent enough Oktoberfest, but nothing to seek out.
