3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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

ON tap at Hop Angel. This beer was very clear. Copper hue, aroma of caramel malt and slight hops. The taste is lightly malty, very easy to drink, smooth. A decent Marzan.

Pours a nice amber color with nice carbonation and a fluffy off white head that lingers. Nice floral and malt aromas. Nice bready, yeasty flavor followed by a nice nuttiness, almost roasted pine nuts. Nice finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a copper/ amber color, with little head. The aroma is of malt, and lightly of hops. the flavor is malty, hops, and a caramel flavor too. This beer is not the best from victory in my opinion.
