3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light golden amber with a head that fades quickly to a slight rim around the glass. Nose is all malt. Smooth on the palate with flavors toasted malt and a hint of caramel. Crisp and refreshing finish. Very easy to drink. This is one of the better Oktoberfests that I’ve had this season.

Bottle: Not bad for a marzen, but this is really not my type of beer. Clear with almost no head. Sweet and easy to drink.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear, light, golden color with a white fluffy head. Not much aroma, but there are some sweet lightly hopped grass smells. The flavor is a light, sweet flavor, without too much else going on. It has less flavor than I usually look for in an octoberfest.

Crystal clear amber body under a small white head. Sweet and smooth crystal malt aroma with a similar flavor. A well put-together fest beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle - Poured clear copper color with small head that quickly faded. A malty aroma with very little hop scent. Flavor was a little boring but well balanced. A drinkable beer but nothing I would brag about.

copper colored pour off tan head w/ a light lace. Bready aroma some light sweet parts.. very light. Avg Pal. Flavor is well grained a touch of light hop, some bread that comes across sweet and a good amount of grain. Decent.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours with a small white head, no lacing. Clear copper color some carbonation. Actually I smell the hops first, some of the yeast quality comes through. Thin body that lacks a bready taste from the malts. A little spicy. One that just did not do it for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice orangish-amber color. Aroma is of caramel and a bit of hops. Taste is very malty, with hints of caramel, and a slight bitter finish. I think it’s very well balanced.
