3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: deep, clear gold with two fingers of thick, frothy, bright white head that lasts a surprisingly long time, leaving lots of lace and slowly shrinking to a thick cap. Aroma: slightly sweet, with aromas of musty grain, honey, toast, and a hint of wet grass. Taste: sweet and bready, with caramel, brown toast, honey smacks, a bit of black pepper, and some light orange/marmalade notes. Finish: clean, slightly sweet, with a crisp back end. Notes: Lighter in color than the Marzens I’m used to, but the head and lacing were a quality surprise. Aromas and flavors were on the sweet side, but very enjoyable and consistent with the style, although not quite as bready as typically expected. A pleasant surprise, from a generally sub-par brewery.

Pours yellow-gold with a thick white head. Aroma is "Oktoberfest" with the yeast, pilsener malts and peppery spices. Taste is mildly sweet malts that drops quickly for the finish. Definitely refreshing.

Nice color. Reasonably full flavored beer, with a good taste and mouthfeel. No bitterness. One of the better Oktoberfest beers for my tastes.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Malty a little banana yeasty lite floral hops
Most oktoberfest lean towards a more orange color this is more yeloow golden This is an easy drinking beer and the Alc. content isn’t high
Currently they are giving an eight dollar rebate on a case.
That brings my overall score up a little
Put this in the lower price rang of $17 bucks a case after rebate
