On tap at brewery. Copper color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is malty with a bit of honey. Flavor is woody and malty with a finish that reminds me of fish bait. Not quite as disgusting as that sounds but just average.

Poured a clear amber with a frothy white head. Aroma is caramel, cereal, roasty, nuts, spruce, earthy and sweet. Taste is sweet caramel, with a maple syrup kind of taste and a bittersweet finish. Feels smooth and the carbonation is just right.

Good beer, but nothing special. The flavors are light as is the aroma. Not the best octoberfest that I have had but it could be worse. Overall it is an average beer. Worth the try.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Pours a great copper orange with minimal head. Flavor is smooth up front, an even balance of subtle hops and full bodied malt. Body is smooth as well, making this thoroughly drinkable. Flavorable isn’t overly memorable, but it’s great while it lasts. I’m not a big oktoberfest/marzen fan, but this is nice.

I really enjoyed this beer, pours a nice red color with an off white head that sticks around. Smells sweet, hints of fruit and bread. Taste of malts and candied fruits prevail, balanced by some hops so it is not overbearing. Great beer to enjoy

It slips down now that autumn is on the door. It simply does what it should.

Pour is a slight amber without much head. Smell is like burnt old popcorn. Taste is burnt malt with a little citrus.
