On tap in a shaker at Bouchon in Asheville, this beer poured a coppery orange with a small head and a bit of lacing all the way down the glass. This is one of the nicer American Oktoberfests out there, with a very light (though not too thin) body, smooth lager-y texture, and just enough malt sweetness to give you a hint of flavor. The hops are ghostly - you would hardly know they are there - but that’s true to the style.

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.

Bottle. Standard bronze color, white headed Octoberfest with a biscuity nose. Flavor starts with caramel, then hits with a hop bite and a long, spicy finish.

Amber brown pour with a small white head. Aroma is of bisquit and toffee. Medium bodied, nice creamy mouthfeel. More bisquit/bread malt flavors with a bit of sweetness and a slighly cloying aftertaste. Pretty good. Nice body initially but it seems a bit thinner once warmed.

12oz bottle from Sam’s, Durham. Yet another marzen? Alas, yes for the most part. Pour fails to leave much of any impression at all, and the nose is malty and grainy. Prickly mouthfeel, and slightly more hops here than one often encounters in the style, which I guess is a plus. Still boring.

Pretty solid marzen. Copper colored. Sweet caramel and toffee aroma. Some spicy hops come through in taste, but dominated but sweet and bready malts. Easy drinking.

It is good and easy to drink but its nothing special. Still a descent marzen but wouldn’t go out of my way for it.
