2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mild malt aroma, dark amber color and a thin white head that diminished fairly fast. Very light malt sweetness, with a mellow front, and a strange flavor in the finish that I couldnt identify, but found to be somewhat cloying.
Sampled at Ram-Rosemont, 10/26/15. Clear orange color. Thin off white head. Drippy lace. Light pale malt and some mild hop notes. Just kinda dull on the mouthfeel. Not my thing. vipinvelp (4580) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2015
Ram Restaurant. Clear amber, lacing. Sweet aroma and likewise taste, think that is supposed to be with an Oktoberfest/Märzen. (Chicago 201510) mcberko (19803) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2015
On tap at Big Horn U District, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Nose brings out bready malt and some straw. Flavour is along the same lines, with bready malt, straw and a sweet corn malt finish. Brewed to style, it’s clean and drinkable. Solid. stevoj (5864) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Sample @ Hoptober Freshtival. A beautiful malty, smooth and slick marzen reminiscent of my autumns in Germany. Pretty true to the original style, and a nice break form all of the hops at this event. cbfobes (2888) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2012
On tap at Schaumburg location, pours a clear copper with a very thin head, aroma is of slight spices and caramel, the flavor is much of the same, pretty boring and nothing really stands out, the mouthfeel is nice though, not watery like most of the other beers have been.

Tap @ RAM. Clear gold pour with a short, persistent white head leaving moderate lace. Nose is pretty minimal - maybe some lightly sweet malts? Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Straw, squash, cafe-au-lait, biscuit and corn syrup. Finish is mostly sweet, but with a touch of toffee bitterness. Not my favorite style, but not a poor example a bit above average. dnstone (3625) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Straight orange in color. Cookie like sweet aroma. Malty as expected with that buttery finish that I get from all oktoberfest.
Notes: Pub visit during ’09 GABF cubs (10740) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Tap @ Fort Collins Harmony location. Incredibly clear, burnt orange appearance with an off white head. Crisp, moderately rich, caramel malty, straw aroma. Grassy, biscuity, creamy, caramel-toffee malty flavor. Straw, grassy, caramel aftertaste. Ok. AmEricanbrew (7080) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 9, 2010
@ Ram Northgate, Seattle. Clear amber color/ off white head. Nice spicy sweet caramel toffee aromas. medium bodied. Smooth caramel, spicy, fruity, birthday cake sweet flavors- good. onceblind (10858) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2010
On tap @ C.B. & Potts, Greenwood Village, CO. Clear yellow amber, not much head. Smells malty with sweet wheat tones. Tastes too much like corn; very distracting. Some wheaty and malty, but without a noticeable hop profile. Uncomplex and not great tasting.
