Thanks jwale73 for this bottle. Appears fairly dark for a märzen with a nice tan head that goes to a mottled skim. Smell is rich caramel malt, toasty. Taste is malty a bit watery with a slight hop bitterness on the aftertaste....some musty notes as well. Carbonation is active with light/medium body.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Cloyingly sweet aroma. No date code punched onthe label, conterfiet? Taste is also quite sweet, more so than other fests. Yes, taste is a little old almost like its 2011 or older vintage. Really comes across like more than 5%. If you look for it, it does have a faint tint of wildness in there. Could be a tad easier on that old lager personality, wew, sweet thing in there but not in a pleasant way. Fricken hat on the rabit goose thing. What a name. Including the word the, like WTF? Yes, difficult at times on the back of the throat. CO2 is quite muted, barely detectable if any. edicinal feel on the finish. Not impressed.

Bottle from Capones, old rating. Pour was brown with a beige colored small head. Lacing was average. Aroma of floral hops, caramel malt, and bread. Taste was very malty and bread dominant as well. Light hop flavors came out as she warmed. Wish there was more hop and less malt in this brew.

Sample at Snallygaster DC event on October 13th, 2012. Pours a slightly over dark copper. Nice aroma, nice amount of caramel. Along with Bells and Great Lakes, one of the better Oktoberfests made in America that I’ve had.
