3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can. Nose deeply malty, dough with a touch of cracker, dark and Munich-y with some pump character. Rich, deep orange with medium carbonation and a layered, dense beige head. Taste semi-sweet with a large bread component, superbly malty (really turned up to ’11’!) with excellent complexity, there’s dough with some latent spice, hops are fresh and grassy and citric but kept short. Alcohol supremely well-hidden; clean, fresh medium body, fuller at times, juicy at others. Exemplary rendition with just enough American to throw off the shackles of tradition.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Heavy malted pour of moderate amber with light off white head. Nose is malted and sweet, moderate nuttiness. Flavor follows. It’s nothing spectacular but it’s nothing bad.

Amber colored with white head. Earthy, damp aroma with hints of sweetness, toffee, and nuts and faint floral hops. Smooth, sweet and rich up front with some lingering floral hops. Mediumish body. Medium carbonation. A solid Oktoberfest.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a brown with a small white head. Aroma is a lager wet paper bag with a bit of toasted malt. Flavor is a better showcase of the malt. A decent, rich malt with very low bitterness. Finishes very clean and refreshing for a marzen. Could have used a bit more body to it but I guess this is a decent attempt.

Bottle at home from early backlog notes 07/08. Pours a clear orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have some caramel, biscuity and toasted malt, some earthy notes. Nose was pretty weak. Worth trying once.
