3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from Tyler’s Bottle Shop, Carrboro
Ar: Aroma is bready along with some caramel notes. Light grassy hops.
Ap: Pours a clear copper with a small, white head that diminishes quickly, leaving spotty lace.
T: Very nice caramel and breadiness up front. Obviously malt-centric, but this one isn’t overly sweet and the finish is well balanced with some mild hop bitterness and a bit of grass/hay.
P: Medium body, maybe a tad overcarbonated for my liking.
O: I think this is a very enjoyable Fest. Clean, simple flavors but enjoyable on a cool fall night nonetheless.

Nice reddish color, looks alot like Killian’s red. Nice aroma, taste leaves much to be desired. Still not a bad effort, not great, but also not bad.

bottle from whole foods. medium amber, very little head. aroma is very bready. medium/light bodied, flavor is smooth and caramel malt-y. finish is sweet, but i guess that’s the style. still, nothing that great.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Originally rated on 9/14/14. Usual amber body with a slight haze, thick cap that leaves some spotty lace. The aroma is of sweet, syrupy bread crust, and roasted malt. Taste is of all of those elements, and there is even a touch of spice. Overall a decent marzen, slightly above average."

Poured a deep amber with moderate head and light lacing. Aroma was of slightly sweet malts with a slight fruity background. Taste was primarily malts upfront with a slight tanginess and mild/moderate hop finish. Palate was decent. Overall a nice Octoberfest/Marzen.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
draft. pours clear brown orange, minimal head. aroma reminded me of honey. light, clean honey. nice malt and grain flavors in the taste. dry, light bitter finish. a solid lager. nothing too complex, but they did well on the malts. my wife liked this one a lot.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: A deep amber when poured with a quickly dissipating off white head. Very spicy at the nose and malty on the palate. Finishes well with a nice sweet aftertaste that I couldn’t quite figure out.
Looking forward to it on tap.
