3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle at a cast party in Farmington Hills MI. Many thanks to the Springer family for a great party with great beer! Anyways, this poured a clear straw yellow, with some caramel and slight hop aromas. The flavor was also perfectly sweet, with a great malty finish. I would say this beats any american macro in "drinkability" and I will definitely be getting this again. Cheers!

Bottle. The aroma is very sweet, reminds me of cookies, also light fruity. Surprisingly sweet, nearly sticky. The head is small, creamy and white with a normal duration. The body is clear and yellow-orange. The taste is light sour, later on the taste gets mild and light metallic. The body is light, dry and a little bit watery with a normal carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A Sunday afternoon, playing Dead Space at my buddies house. He breaks out the King Crab legs and some Lumpia and damned if this didn’t go well with not only the food, but the gaming as well. A bit lighter than I expected a Marzen to be, but still enjoyable nonetheless.
The beer pours out a light golden color, a fairly thin looking 1-2 finger thick head and a clear body. Aroma was honey, a touch of hay, a bit of cut grass and some light malt. I’d swear this was a pilsner if I didn’t read the label. Flavor had more honey, some hay, a touch of toffee, with just a nice kick of bitterness at the swallow. Easy to enjoy, and easy to drink.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a yellow color with a little head that goes quick. Aroma is bread, yeast, lots of malts, and grass. Taste is all of the same. Very watery body. Smooth and very drinkable.

Draft at Mr. Dunderbaks (Tampa, FL). Clear, golden yellow color with a thin white head. Expected a darker color from an Oktoberfest beer. Aroma was sweet and malty. Very smooth and drinkable flavor with subtle hops. Paired nicely with my dinner of pork schnitzel and spatzle.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
50cl bottle. It poured a pale yellow colour with a huge white foamy head that settled down fast in the glass. The aroma is very malty, but there’s also notes of grass and yeast. The flavour is also very malty and slightly spicy, hints of wheat. It has a short aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours golden with rocky white head. Herbaceous zesty aromas, grassy hops as well with an underlying subtle malt.
Sweet malty beer with strong hop character. Hops are grassy & straw like. A bit funky. Slight citrus fruit but barely detectable. A bit too much sweet malt.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear golden with a fluffy white head. Strong grassy aroma with a touch of yeast and malt. Very bitter and malty in flavour, overpowering the herb and orange characters which are just present. Slight alcohol taste on the palate. Tasty, but malt too strong.
