Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear copper color without much depth and a small off-white head that settles into an uneven ring and wispy film while leaving a few spots of lace in the glass. Notes of toasted sugar, biscuit, light toffee, grass, mild spice, apple - I don’t really get the apricot notes they mention on the label. More fruit in the back of the flavor, with bigger malts and more earth and malt in the aroma. Light-medium bodied, with modest carbonation and an earthy, fruity, malty mouthfeel. Decent Oktoberfest.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 10-06-2015 (Kroger Marketplace-Fort Wayne, IN) This bottled beer pours a very small beige head that has a short retention, amber transparent body, fast rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is malt, toffee, citrus hops, fruity, earthy, and light spice. The flavor is semi-sweet, lightly bitter, citrus hops, fruity, spice, and malt. The mouthfeel of this beer is light carbonation and this is a light bodied beer. A quaffable beer that lacks in character.

3.99 a sixer? Okay! Generally a top sweet marzen. Big malts almost no bitterness. Fine for the price as a drinking beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crystal clear copper / amber color with a frothy white head. Toasted malt and wood aromas. Taste is more of a standard amber ale than an Oktoberfest. Nice roasted malt flavors with a touch of sweetness. A bit of earthy bitterness to balance it out. Body has a creamy texture which gives it a fullness. Finishes dry with a light honey sweetness.
