2012 Flour City Brewers’ Fest. Poured dark amber with off-white head. Aroma is toffee sweetness, roasty malt, and cereal. Taste brings out some grassy hops. Body is pretty light yet creamy. Maybe not the best marzen but pretty good for a macro.

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.

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.

Making this one official with the 10th rating. A nice caramel orange color. Off white foam, everything seems to be in order. The aroma is nicely toasted malts, some caramels, a bit of grassiness, still nice. The taste is a bready malt, slight sweetness, a nice drying hop bite with a bit of toasty malt mixed in. I don’t know if it was the pipe of Ashton Consumate Gentleman with it, but this beer hit the spot. I would like to see this in bottles but I slightly hesitate on that because I remember the draft Bock being better than the bottled Bock released the next year.

Bottle much thanks to Dmac. Pours out an attractive amber color with an off white head. Aroma is of cereal, caramel malts, some light cereal and maybe a touch of some hop notes, but not many. Taste is sweet grainy cereal, light caramel, mild toffee, dry toast, and some mild bitterness, but not much. Eh, it’s ok.
