Aroma is not strong with dough and floral hints. It has an amber color but not much of a head. It’s hoppy and smooth with hints of a yeast flavor. It’s a decent all the way around.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear dark amber. Quick one finger head, no real lacing with little retention. Aroma caramel and burnt sugar. Taste is mainly malty sweet, with just a touch of bitterness. Medium bodied, light carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes dry. Tasting notes of caramel, biscuit, tree nuts, grass and herbs. Not a bad fest beer.

12 oz. bottle. Poured a clear copper color with a razor thin head that dissipated almost immediately. Taste of roasted malts, biscuit and caramel. Lively carbonation, medium body. Not too shabby. Happy Oktoberfest

Pours a luminous red with a thin fizzy head that dissipates to a thin, clumpy lace. Aromas of caramel and spice. Flavors are caramel, brown sugar, roasted malts, spice and biscuit. Slight herbal tones. Dry finish. Thin, highly carbonated mouthfeel. Not very memorable.

A nice looking festbier but extremely light on taste. Very smooth but very little flavor. Tap.

Malty, with the bread notes one would expect for the style. A little dried fruit as well. Not bad. Prost!

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."

Yellow straw with white head. Malt and candy sweet nose and some lemon with some mustiness.. Citrus in the profile, hops a bit cloying. Citrus hop flavor. A bit too much separate pieces not coming together here.
