Bottle. Another great beer for Highland. Pours an dark orange-amber-copper color with a decent head and great lace.. Taste is more floral-hops then most marzen style beers. Aroma is a malty, spicy, floral with slight nuts. Good stuff.

Bottle. Pours a copper-straw color with a medium off-white head. Flavor is quite good. Good, spiced malts dominate with hints of toasty caramel. Very good for the style, but I’ve always been partial to Highland.

Nice bit of orange in the aroma with the maltiness. Taste and palate are on the weak side and it doesn’t hit the maltiness that a Marzen should be getting at in my opinion. Fun beer to drink though especially for an early go at Marzens.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of sincereNC. Clear pale amber with a rough off-white head. Sweet malty nose, a very clean maltiness. Medium body, intensely malty sweet but never sticky. A little flowery hops but hardly any bitterness. Nice and close to style. 150311

12oz bottle via trade. Pours a nice clear copper color with a one-finger white head that fades to a film before too long. The aroma is pretty nice, with sweet caramel, toast, and bready notes. The flavor is a little on the sweet side but still fairly well-done. Munich malt is big here, lending caramel and slight toasty notes. Medium-bodied and slightly sticky on the mouthfeel, though it finishes dry. On the softer side with carbonation. Pretty good American oktoberfest - above average for the style for sure.
