On draught at Freakin’ Frog. Super clear dark golden color. Sticky sweet aroma. Taste is sweet sugary caramel with hint of molasses. Good, but not a favorite.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A - Pours a clear golden straw. Big fluffy 2 finger head. Blots of lacing left behind.
S - Husk and sweet grain. Earthy lager yeast.
T - Spicy hops off the top. Earthy grains flowing heavy. Weird honey kissed malt. The malt slowly starts showing up more as it sets. I poured the beer at 47 degrees F.
This is not a good representation of the style by any means. I think they got the Pilsner tanks mixed up with the Marzen tanks. It’s like a macro pilsner with artificial sweetener.

From a bottle into a pilsner glass. Slight aroma of floral malts, standard for the style. Reasonably flavorful; decent quality in the marzen style.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
One of my least favorite Oktoberfest imports. Effervescent and has the stink of pasteurized imports. Caramel, bread, brown sugar, and nuttiness.

Heavy fizz in this one, guys. A little bit of bitter carbonation on the nose and taste, but with a nicely balanced flavor to round it out. Worth trying for sure.

Poured from a 12oz bottle. Light golden color, no lacing, nice head but dissipates quickly. Smells and tastes like hay.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Boktoberfest. Nose is grainy, caramel malt, and some lightly grassy hops. Color is bronze with a white head. Very bubbly in the glass. Taste is true to the marzen style: caramel malts, some grassy hops, and a lighter body. It had a pale malt tinge to it on the finish. A solid oktoberfest brew.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear copper color with a white soapy head. Aroma of grain, nuts, and caramel. Grain, caramel, and nut flavor. Fairly simply beet with a bit of skunk funk.
