3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at GABF. Pours a pleasing copper with a fluffy white head. Nose is toasty, faint herbal hopping and crisp and clean. Nice malt profile with balancing hops. On taste, it is really quite nice. Crisp and fresh, big malt profile and a balancing bitterness overall. Really solid Oktoberfest.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle - bruisin ales - pours a clear yellow-orange with a thin head and some carbonation. Aroma is lemon, ginger, and pine. Taste is mildly bitter with the citrus notes coming through at the end. The palate is light and refreshing, finishes clean. Overall, a little light for a marzen, but delicious none the same.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A golden color with a white head. Aroma contains some citrus and caramel. The flavor is oddly hoppy with some lemons and pine. Ofest my arse. If I rated on style Id tan this but I don’t so Ill say this is a pretty good session apa.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Ar: Somewhat soapy, a bit of mossy hops and sweet grain.
Ap: Clear orange-amber - medium off-white head with good retention and pretty nice lacing.
T: Crusty and toasty malt up front - malty and mossy hops, clean - mid-palate and finish is full and malty, though not sweet.
P: Medium-light bodied - medium-high carbonation - mouthfeel comes off as a bit watery - overall, quite dry.
O: Sessionable o-fest - nice malt character and dry, though somewhat watery and overall underwhelming.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Orange amber color, tall white head. Aroma of toasted malts, lager yeast, some grassy hops. Sweet caramel malt taste, some straw. Reminds me more of a Vienna style than a Märzen. I would drink this beer all day long as the leaves change to Fall.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Beautiful copper pour with no head or carbonation.
Very little flavor and leaves an aftertaste of dirty socks.
These guys need to step up their game.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. clear pale orange white small head. the typical nose for the style: light toasted malt with a floral stamp. flavor is, again, malty but the noble hops add a good limey zing to the finish. a very "pilsy" oktoberfest. light to medium body and smooth. a lighter but tasty version of the style.
