2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft: Pours a transparent dark amber color with a smaller head. Nice lacing. Nose is faint of malty sweetness with light hops. Tastes malty and lageresque without a strong or definitive character. Looks great (no kidding, like a "5"), but smells and tastes pretty weak and watery.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at the South Hill Puyallup Ram. Outstanding representative of the style. Deep, rich amber color. Malty, mapley sweetness, with a nearly perfect touch of hops. Perhaps just a touch heavy on the palate for a fest-marzen, but I’d drink plenty more of this.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Amber in the glass with a thin off-white head. Subdue malty aroma. The flavor found spices, caramel and was lightly toasted. Light body, dry and high carbonation on the tongue. Slight toasty aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Tap) Pours amber without much of a head. Malty and slightly nutty. Dry, bland aftertaste. Rather refreshing, but not something I could drink a lot of.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Darker looking than most Oktoberfests. The draught was served with hardly any head. For a micro brewed Oktoberfest this was good (not that I’ve had any others). Then again,I wasn’t expecting Paulaner. Its sweet, malty, has a decent roasted taste. Nothing special but its still enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet and malty up front with a lot of fruitiness in the finish. Darker copper in color with a soft white head. Not to bad, better then most other local oktoberfest beers i’ve had recently.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber colored, malty aroma with hints of sweetness? A sweet and very long finish, with a little bitterness. Overall not to bad.
