I think this is one of the better Oktoberfest beers I’ve had, although I’m not a fan of marzens generally This beer brings a sweet, rich quality to the style that makes it just highly drinkable. It pours bright golden color with a fair amount of foam. The aroma is sweet, with molasses and sugary malt very prominent. That’s the flavor, too. None of it really segregates to the front or back of the tongue, it’s just this swirl of mild hops, a little something like honey, a bit of pineapple... it all adds up to an unassuming but decidedly sweet brew that I found refreshing.

Pour is a dark brown with a large white head. Aroma is a toasted grain with a little tootsie roll sweetness. Flavor is a very heavy mouth feel at first then comes some molasses and something like a fig. This is way sweeter than the style should be.

A nice brown ale. But not much of an octoberfest. Malty, not as sweet as you would expect.. Thin fading head. Flavor of fall. Overall an enjoyable beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle of the traditional Oktoberfest bier.
Body should have higher clarity but has a fine dark amber tone and a durable head.
Aroma: mild and pleasing, with some spicy/herbal hops mixed in with the light roasted and caramel malts.
Flavor: mild and pleasing. I’d like more boldness but, as usual for style, this beer is more designed for ’session’ drinking than slow sipping.
