Bottled at SBWF. Clear amber, minimal head. Doughy nose with buttery malt. Mid sweet with medium body and well rounded mouthfeel. Richly malty with bread and butter. Low bitterness. Good, rich festbier!

Bottle @sbwf15. Dark amber, thin white head. Malty, bready aroma, not much else. Flavor similar, just a basic malty, oktoberfest brew . nice.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light copper color yeasty bread nose lightly effervescent mouthfeel. Not my favorite Octoberfest beer of this year but certainly not the worst.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours amber with a one finger off white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma and taate is of toasted bread, caramel sweet malts, light toffee, grassy hops, and some spicy hops. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi bitter, medium finish. Overall, a pretty nice Oktoberfest.

Clear dark orange crystal clear and great carbonation. Thick sweet malty flavor good martzen...could be a little crisper for my palate but may be not really what the style commands.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A- Malty, spice, wheat.
A- Pale orange color, clear liquid, off white head.
T- Malty, spice, slightly woody..
P- Light body, average texture, medium carbonation, malty finish.
O- This was a little past the best by date but I still did’t expect it to be this bland and unbalanced. Just tasted really malty and not a lot of anything else. Very disappointing. Better as it warms.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz single bottle into a pint glass, purchased yesterday, best by 11/26/14, WTF Tipsy’s? Burnt orange, light amber and clear appearance with a white head and light lacing. Aroma of Munich malts, light noble hops, toffee, bread, toasted grains and light caramel. The flavor is malt forward and moderately sweet with a light spicy hop bitterness coming through in the finish. Pretty solid oktoberfest bier, even after the best by date.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle with a BB date stamp of Dec. 2014.
A bit bland, even for a Marzen, this beer manages to have crisp, lively carbonation with a head that’s a bit weak for style. Light aroma and flavor is even a tad light for style, although not the hop level. Nearly as sweet as it is bitter.

Very solid marzen. Smells slightly like caramel with a nice amber color. Taste is good with very little bitterness and after taste.
