COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seductively smooth, this medium-bodied amber beauty is akin to the great Oktoberfest beers of Munich. All German hops make this lager true to style. Patient cold aging makes it wonderfully smooth. In bottles September through February

12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a foamy beige head. Aroma of caramel, sweet fruits, bread, and roasted malts. Has a nice balance between sweet malts and bitter hops. A dry smooth finish. Not too bad.

A deep amber color with a finger width head. Smelled of indistinct spices, fruit, and bread. A spicy.. slight pumpkin flavor. An overall good October fest style beer.

12oz bottle into pint glass. Pours a clear copper with amber hues. Initially a one finger off-white head that leaves a bit of spotty lacing. Very malty aroma of caramel, roasted almonds, fresh grains, biscuits, and wheat bread. Even getting a good amount of grassy hops in the nose. Taste is heavy toasted caramel malts up front with wheat, bitter earthy hops, and doughy bread. Long, lingering finish of toasty caramel malts. Clean and crisp. Medium bodied, slick texture, slightly higher than average carbonation. Highly drinkable. This is Oktoberfest done right! Maybe not the defining Oktoberfest beer, but should certainly be in the top 10 of any Oktoberfest best of lists.

Poured from a bottle. Slight malty aroma. Orange-copper color. 1/4" white head that quickly dissipates, little lacing. Moderate carbonation with medium body & mouthfeel. Malty flavor with some carapmel & a hint of breadiness. I enjoyed this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer has a decent malty color with a slightly reddish orange color to it. The head was a nice white but minimal head that quickly disappeared. The smell is a nice malty smell with a good maltiness and a mild nuttiness to it. The taste starts of with a great malty, nutty flavor but it quickly fades away to nothing, which was disappointing. The mouthfeel was a lingering malt and nuttiness but was minimal at best although it tasted better after I belched. Overall, a decent marzen style beer but my only concern was drinking an october beer in july. I wouldn’t search this beer out but wouldn’t shun it if it was available either.
