4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The pour is surprisingly cloudy. Roasted malt and a hint of orange in the aroma. Very tasty! Full body, a lot of butterscotch followed by a touch of citrus sweetness. Hops provide a dry and slightly bitter finish.
Really yummy. Immediately one of my favorite Oktoberfests

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle. Aroma us a sweet caramel with a hint of molasses. Deep malt character that is well balanced with a tiny hint of spice in the back end. Palate is fairly thick, a really good American oktoberfest.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear copper with a thin white head. It has a slight spicy aroma with hints of earth and hay. It tastes medium sweet with a hint of bitter. The body is thin with crisp texture. I’m not a fan of Oktoberfest beers and this one doesn’t really help. It isn’t a beer that I’ll remember or even try to recall.

Trying to get in some marzens before the season is over and had never tried this one before. Pours a clear amber with no head. Faint aromas of spice and malts. Flavor is par for the course for marzens. Lots of malts and a bit watery but tasty.

Bottle. Clear amber color with a thin, off white head. Caramel malt and baked biscuit flavor with some subtle spices in the finish. Dry texture with average carbonation. A middle of the road marzen at a bit of an inflated price.

5oz taster on tap at Cincinnati Beer Fest. Totally clear orange / amber color. Good bigger off-white head. Caramel malt, breadiness in the aroma. Good lace. Medium body, smooth lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate bitter taste. Solid oktoberfest.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not worth brewing. Usual Oktoberfest. Nothing bad---but nothing worth buying. Clear amber color, modest head, and average body.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This bottled beer pours a small ivory head, transparent body, no visible carbonation, spotty amounts of lacing, and a golden hue. The Aroma is malt and caramel. The Taste is semi-sweet, malty and caramel. The Palate is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer needs more flavor as it was boring to drink and rate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Amber pour, foamy white head. Grain and toast, nutty, biscuit, herbal, light caramel. Medium-full, quite sticky. One of the less impressive offerings I’ve had from Thirsty Dog.
