Thanks Dannys Mom! Nice easy drinking marzen. Malty caramel but still decently light. Prost!

Best Octoberfest I’ve had so far, tho sam adams is close. This one is a bit more creamy and better balanced. Not too sweet, not too bitter, just right. Malty and smooth

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A- Celery, malty, bread.
A- Copper color, clear liquid, off white head.
T- Caramel, nutty, dried stone fruits, spice, bread.
P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish.
O- For a style that has never impressed me, I actually enjoyed this one. The subtle apricot/stone fruit that was underlying the caramel was really nice. A touch of spice on top of all that made for a drinkable beer. A bit of an odd ingredient in the aroma but didn’t kill the beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Another German brew from New Glarus, another beautifully-executed beer. It pours a clear dark amber. Rich malty nose with a hint of fruitiness. Tastes like toasted bread, caramel, apricot, nuts, and spices. More full-bodied than some, yet exceptionally smooth. Hops are definitely muted here. This brew is about the 1,100 pounds of toasted malted barley that went into making it. There aren’t many American-made fest biers that can top this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark gold, almost amber, some white head. Aroma is a little bready, no hops. Taste of wheat bread, some slight brown sugar sweetness. Some hops add balance but it's not overly bitter, not too sweet. Creamy mouthfeel, malty body.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle pours a clear orange/amber color with small but lasting off-white head. Not much to smell, but what aroma that is is malty, with sweet grains and some caramel. Taste is on the sweet side with a bitter finish and malty aftertaste. Body is light to medium with lively carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
5oz draft sample from brewery tasting. Light copper, filtered clear. Malt-forward with notes of biscuity/bread giving way to classic earthy/spicy hops characteristic of the style. Finish was dry and refreshing with lingering hop bitterness.
