Pours a brownish/orange color. Smell is mild, some malts. Taste is a bit malty, just a touch of hops present. Easy drinking and a pretty good beer.

It has a deep rich golden body with visible carbonation and good clarity. A two finger thick and foamy white head sits on top. It slowly fades to a thin layer that hangs on well and some slick lacing. The aroma is light and has a delicate light grain note with a slight hint of spicy hops. It has a crisp pale biscuity malt with some light roasted notes as well. There is a mild sweetness from the malt and a nice equal balance of bitterness and leafy/grassy/spicy hop flavor notes. It finishes crisply with a slight balance towards the bitter hop side. The palate has a medium body with plenty of active carbonation.

@ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Nearly clear medium amber color, over-anzious head, globs of lace. Taste is over-sweet malt that adds light spice and fizz in the palate before moving to light bitters in the finish. On the low end as an Oktoberfest.

Pours a clear amber with a medium off white head. Aroma has light toasty malts and dry leaves. Flavor follows suit...some hints of caramel and tea...earthy and toasty. Mouthfeel is medium/full and the finish is earthy/roasty and lingers to light earthy hoppiness.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Good Dog. Slightly hazy dark gold pour with some light foam on top. Burnt whole wheat toast, caramel and orange peels. Palate is juicy but too thin. Drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a hazy tan with a small tan head. Aroma is slightly malty and kinda thin. Flavor is better with a nice roasted nut and decent caramel malt. Finish is malty and bready. Did not start off too well with this one but after taking a few sips it grew on me and turned out to be a decent marzen.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
a malt note in the nose, not over assertive. nice color and clarity, good head. good malt flavor but, again, not out of balance. little hop bitterness. clean finish. seems like a slightly modest version of the style. a good lighter version of a fest beer.

On tap at Stoudt’s Restaurant.
Pale amber color, thin head that dissipates quickly. Interesting nose - yeast and fresh bread with some fruitiness. Body is a little light for an Octoberfest, and overall it is light on flavor.
A ’mature", older style fest.
