3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Beautiful orange body light head very nice lacing. True to form smells of a german lager, muted. Obvious munich malts and subtle german hop presence. Crisp and refreshing, but a little too carbonated for me. Still better than a budweiser.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Exemplar of the style and a credit to the brewers. I poured a 12 oz bottle into a shaker. This caramel-colored beer gave off a lively bready aroma, and flavors followed suit, with dough, yeast, caramel, vanilla, and the merest whiff of grass. I’m not a fan of Oktoberfests, but this is definitely a good session beer and the perfect addition to an afternoon of football here in the American South.

Bottle. From the bottle so no pour. Aromas of caramel malts, bread, slight skunk, and a bit of pretzel? Flavor is super smooth. Caramel, bread, floral hops,and nice carbonation. Well done brew and really easy to drink.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours deep golden with amber tints and no head at all, just soapy white rings around the surface of the beer. Nose was pilsner malt, caramelled malt, slight hops, moderate apple juice, and cereal. The taste is mild apple juice, pilsner, cereal, and slight hops. Mouthfeel is refreshing. Decent marzen but not great, something is wrong with this beer but can’t pin it down.

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.
