2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a nice copper color with a decent off white head. It has a slightly metallic aroma with a slight breadiness. The flavor has stale earthy notes with bit of fresh mushroom, bread, and club soda. Thin, watery body with a bit too much carbonation. Not a very good interpretation of the style.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Comes out of the tap a reddish amber with a fine-bubbled light tan head. Powdery aroma is malty with caramel and earthy undertones. Malty flavor has earthy, caramel and grassy underpinnings - quite satisfying. Body is above average, and fizzy texture leaves a strongly tingly and earthy finish. Prosit!

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear dark amber...like maple syrup...with a medium tan head. Aroma is a bit muddled between dry leaves and a skunky/cheap hoppiness...kind of smells like chemical and vomit. Flavor recovers a bit with light caramel and dry leaves...light earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel medium/full with a dry, earthy finish.

their is not any outstanding flavor that makes this unique toward the marzen style. the matls are too weak its palate is thin and has a taste of vegetable and corn. not worth the time .

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A boring Oktoberfest beer. Even more so as it is released in August. Anyhow, this is a decent macrobrewer attempt at the style. Aroma was alright. Classic lager aromas with notes of caramel and roasted malt. Pour was a nice light dark brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was weak and thin, but refreshing. Roasted malt and caramel are the big flavors, but don’t really stand out. Decent carbonation and a quick finish. Not much lingering after the swallow. Will try again in the fall when this beer should be consumed.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Decent for the style which I admit is not my favorite. This pours amber with a small head. The aroma is bread, malt, grain, molasses and a bit of caramel. The flavor has the same with just a touch of hops for balance.

12oz bottle poured into glass. Very typical marzen style only a little lighter in aroma and flavor. Very easily drinkable and perhaps even sessionable.
