3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rather typical looking oktoberfest with a bright orange and golden color with a white head atop the beer. Sweet malts and a slitght cereal grain quality in the nose that traslates to the palate as well. Sweet malts and a slight cereal grain in the finish with a hint of crisp hops. Not bad.

Bottle. Aroma has notes of caramel and cereal malts. Nuts and some bread as well. Medium amber hue with an average foamy white head that mostly diminished and left little lace. Flavor is medium sweet. Palate is medium bodied and oily soft. Overall a pleasant malty brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at Winking Lizard. The beer is a clear golden-orange color with a thin off-white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grainy malt and caramel plus a touch of hops. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, mild hops and a touch of yeast. The finish is short and sweet with a malty aftertaste. Pretty straightforward Oktoberfest beer overall.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
With fall coming, on tap at buckeye beer engine, it’s a nice amber color with a super malty bready presence.. Not bad but not my favorite definitely needs to be colder to enjoy

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle - Pours clear orange with a one finger head. It has a mild toasted caramel malt aroma. The flavor is just sweet, lightly toasted caramel malt, maybe a little bready taste, and not much else. It’s decent for what it is, but I was a bit underwhelmed.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nice 1 inch thick head of fine bubbles. Smoked malts and roasted grains in the aroma. Color is a brownish orange. Interesting flavor. Lots of smoky notes and roasted grains. Much smokier than expected. Soft bready malts give a bit of body to this brew. No hops or alcohol to speak of. A ok brew but nothing that I would seek out again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep orange-amber into the glass with a lightly retentive head that leaves sudsy lace. The nose is of yeast, dough, basement, malt and country silage. Flavors are malty with some tiny effervescent grain to the finish. The mouthfeel is thinner, but it is smooth on the palate and makes for a good session brew. All around, not the most substantially complex body, granted, but definitely not a bad take on the Märzen.
