Aroma is wild and slightly floral. Color is brown and clear with a nice head. Taste is slightly hopped and slightly sour; sort of bready. Interesting interpretation of Oktoberfest. Palate is full and frothy, but not too thick.

Nice orange coloring, low carbonation, decent light flavoring, goes down very smooth and finishes clean. Overall it’s a pretty standard interpretation, would like them to go a little bolder next time, still good though.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Originally reviewed: 11/1/11. 12oz bottle, poured into a pint glass. Pours a translucent dark gold with a thin white head on top. Retained well enough. The nose is well-attenuated with notes of caramel, sweet malts, light ethanol. The mouth is more spritzy than I would prefer, but it’s not terrible. Good sweet toffee/caramel forefront, light bitterness, with a short alcohol finish. Good Marzen. I haven’t had many new ones this fall, but this one is a pleasant treat. I’ll get this again when fall rolls around. The best I’ve had from TC for sure.

Bottle poured into glass. Nothing really special going on here. Watery and slightly malty, bland with very little flavor.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden/Amber pour, small off-white head and spotty lacing. Aromas of bread, grassy hops, leaves, rye and malt. Crisp and refreshing w/ lt/med body. Malty sweetness up front and has a dry finish. Flavors of sweet malt and some caramel apple. nicely balanced with hoppy bitterness and hint of mint in the middle. I really like this even though thee is almost nothing unique about it. Simply a very good beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Moderate to heavy malt notes of light bread and faint caramel, moderate herbs for the hops, light erth for the yeast, with cardboard and faint ripe fruit like apple and spice in the background. Head is average size, frothy, very light tan with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is sparkling clear amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, a little slick with a lively carbonation and a dry finish. Certaily one of the better Oktoberfestbiers I’ve had.
