UPDATED: NOV 27, 2016 Clean and unassuming, Highland’s Oktoberfest entry sticks to the classic profile, but is lacking some of the toasted breadt we character that is so appealing to me. Nicely balanced with a lightly bitter and malty aftertaste. A good match for a hearty burger or hot dogs.

Pours orange-amber into the glass, with a fully diminished eggshell head that leaves trace lace. Aromas of malts and a processed candy effervescence. Sweet malt upfront, with some bock-like yeast in the mid-palate. The finish is an almost null semi-sour old stock yeast. A unilateral mouthfeel leads into a semi-thin body and lands slightly flat on the palate. For a Märzen, it’s not bad, just not a super complex offering, and is somewhat forgettable.

Bottle from Daniel. Drank this one while watching our 70 - 24 ass kicking festival from another championship year of ASU football. Orange color, with a white head. Smell is fruity, malty, sweet, and not really many hops to take note of. Taste is lively carbonation, with some fruit notes as well. There isnt alot going on here, its just easy to drink and smooth. Thats about it. Not really a good beer, but not a terrible one either.

Pours orange/amber with a fully receding tan head. Notes of sweet toasted malt, bread dough, crackers, chewy toffee. Medium to full bodied, lightly sweet with soft carbonation.

12oz bottle. Bright orange color with only the slightest ring of tiny white bubbles. Aroma is lightly sweet and a little spicy. Actually really tastey.

Pint on draft at Za’s Pizza Pub. Aroma: Has a pretty full spiced breadiness about it; hop character is freshly herbal and tends towards lemon. Appearance: Transparent copper body with soft carbonation holding up a sticky tan head that settles into a skin. Flavor: Slightly spiced bread up front that is quickly met by a growing herbal hop presence and a bit of lemon; the finish is mostly dry and lightly bitter. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: A well constructed example of the style that features a fresher-feeling hop presence than many others; maybe I just happened upon a fresh keg.

A nice brew from Blue Lou from one of my favorite breweries out of Asheville. Beautiful city, beautiful people, beautiful beer. Pours a clear, bright amber colour with a finger sized head. It’s quick to dissipate but leaves behind a generous amount of lacing. And actually holds pretty nice retention with the foam. Aroma is nice. Soft hops with roasted malts and a little burnt toast. Taste is pleasent, with flavours of fruit and grass and other woodsy things. A pretty tasty beer all around.

Pours a nice copper color with a an off white head. Aroma is caramel, grain, toast, biscuit, and some spicy hops. Flavor is caramel, toast, biscuit, grain, and a bitter spicy finish.

On tap at Coasters. Copper pour with a very thin white head. Aroma of light caramel malt and soap. Toffee and caramel sweetness as well as light floral hops. Slightly bitter aftertaste, although nothing unpleasant. Not really one of my favorite styles but good for what it is.

Wow, terrible. Not completely awful, but I would not recommend this to anyone. Doesn’t taste like a marzen, more like a pale ale. Bland and boring.
