500 ml flip-top bottle from Wasana’s in Germany. Pours a dark amber color with a beige head. Aroma is bread, caramel, sweet malt. Taste is a little flat but still on the mark. Bread, malt and some sweetness. Palate is a little harsh for style but still a good beer.

Smooth and creamy texture. Pretty typical oktoberfest but with a better than average mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Moan & Dove - Amherst, MA. Aroma is really focused on a almost caramel malts, really distinctly driven by CaraMunich and other raisin-like malt touches. Oddly, this doesn’t follow through in the flavor and the build centers around traditional paler Marzen structure. Complex and broad. Hearty.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Grainy caramel scent. Murky orange-brown look. Sweet earthy, bready, malty flavor. Cross between marzen and zwickl. Too light for Oktober drinking. Imported by the Sheltons of course.

It poured a light amber color with a small white head. The aroma was of toasted grain, caramel, grass and some bready notes. The taste was slightly sweet with toasted malts, some stale bread, grass, and light caramel with a slightly dry finish.

Bottle. Cloudy amber with full light head that vanishes quickly. Not picking up much on the nose... and honestly the flavor is refreshing but doesn?t leave a strong impression. Am I tasting a little buttery banana? No lacing.

Tap. Pours clear tawny with a medium, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is caramel and cookie malt, dates, and earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness, a clean lager character with a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation with low warmth.

Pours a hazy dark amber with a nice 1/4’’ head and full lace. Taste is sweet caramel malt with a nice natural bittering. Not a lot going on, but well-balanced and easy to drink. A keeper.
