pours a clear amber with a medium beige head. Light malt and grass aroma. Full malt flavor with some modest hop bitter to counter. Pleasant bittersweet finish. Very well balanced. Probably the best Oktoberfest I’ve had yet. Good beer!

12 oz. bottle. Deep amber with a thick tan head. Aroma of sweet malt. Sweet malty flavor with some roasted notes. Smooth finish. Fall beers are a lot more interesting than most summer beers. Extra points for the history of the style.

From draft at World of Beer Oktoberfest : Pours dark gold with a quick dieing head. Kinda of a appley aroma. Flavor was roasted, and palate was watery for a marzen. Very carbonated. Finishes with a watery caramel aftertaste.

H-P is probably the most consistently disappointing brewery. Their products look nice and I always anticipate a good beer, but I have yet to try a brew of their’s I would consider better than good. Dominated by yeast with fleeting fruitiness, this is another let-down.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a very aesthetically pleasing dark amber color with a light off-white head that dissipates quickly. Heavy flavor of roasted malts with a hint of bread which is greatly apparent at mid-tongue. Light to medium bodied with a bitter finish. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Review from notes at World of Beer - Fort Myers on 11/17/11.
Poured on draft into a shaker pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a dark caramel with gold highlights and a 1/2 finger off-white head. Minimal lacing.
Smell: Sweet German malt with a touch of earthy notes.
Taste: Sweet German malt up front followed by lightly bitter earthy hops in the middle ending with sweet malt at the finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-to-medium-bodied with a good amount of carbonation.
Drinkability: Decent drinkability. You wouldn’t want more than a couple.
Overall: Slightly above average beer overall. There are far better Oktoberfest beers available.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brilliant orange-rust color with a weak head. Aroma is malty, bready and dry - quite pleasant, actually. Flavor starts out slightly harsh but becomes mildly pleasant towards the end of the glass: very bready and malty with a touch of grapefruit citrus tang spell a well-balanced winner on a long pair of scales. Despite the lack of head and thin appearance this beer has a lush, well-carbonated feel on the palate. Recommended!
