3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a reddish amber. Small off white head. Aroma of roast and malt. Really big flavors of roast and caramel. Some bitter in the finish. Flavors are bolder and not as sweet as other Octoberfests I’ve had. Would like to try as draft to.

From a bottle. Solid, if a little boring. Some spicy quality, but not very round or complex.

On draft hazzy darkish bronze color. Smell of wheat sweetness. Nice medium malty boddy. Suprised by the tangy hop finish.

Decent Oktoberfest brew. Pours a reddish brown with an off white head. Aroma is chocolate and sweet bread. Taste is light chocolate, little bitterness, thin body with medium carbonation and dry finish. Enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a dark copper color with a frothy off-white head. Biscuit aroma with some spices. Toasted malt flavor balanced with a soft, hoppy finish. Dry texture and well carbonated. Definitely drinkable but closer to an ESB than a Marzen IMO.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours red-tinged copper, moderate head. Nose of caramel and chocolate malt, slight hoppiness. Flavor is all bitter up front, that or rancid malt flavors. Tastes spoiled, I can’t imagine a Marzen deliberately tasting like this. Not a fan.

Much better than the standard Oktoberfest offerings; this is complex, earthy, and nicely hopped.
