3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sort of like a liquid version of a hard Beer-Candy. Not bad but nothing to write home about, this bright copper Marzen has a nice head that laces well. It smells of sweet malt, some corn and cereal with very light hop spiciness in the background. It is quite sweet with only a finishing bitter impact saving it from candy territory. I get some earthy hints of mushroom as well, nothing to grave but present. With most Pump House brews I have had I noticed a somewhat metallic taste, perhaps from the twist-off caps. She’s a tad syrupy but overall fairly enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not bad, but not overly fun. Pours a clear amber with tiny head. Aroma is of wheat, leather, caramel, and some horse. Tastes of smoke, caramel, and toffee. Has low carbonation and feels very watery with a smokey aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap from the brew-pub. Pours a copper colour with a light tan head. Not much lacing. A bit of a malty aroma. Flavours of honey and a little bit of spice, but not nearly enough. Kind of sticky on the palate.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
341ml bottle pours a golden amber color with a finger of white head that settles down to leave only a speck or two of lacing on the glass. Aroma is cereal grains and caramel. Taste is a grainy malt sweetness with a light citrus and grassy hop bitterness. A decent brew for the style, but there are better ones out there.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
October 30, 2011 - Volo Cask Days 2011 - gravity cask. Minimal notes for this one. Hazy amber, small beige rocky head. Simple malt aroma, cereal, lightly toasty, a tad sweet, just a little soft floral bitterness to balance, light alcohol. Average across the board - crisp, chewy, decently carbonated, finishes fairly quickly leaving a light biscuity malt aftertaste. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Poured with an average-sized, off-white head. Some spare lacing on the sides of the glass. Body is an amber/orange color, and quite cloudy.
S: Mild, sweet aroma of malt, with a little nuttiness to it.
T: Pretty good flavor of average malt, and moderately sweet. Short duration - doesn’t really last too long after it’s gone. The nuttiness is in there again, with the malt.
M: Medium-bodied and creamy texture, with average carbonation.
D: A very decent Oktoberfest, if not the best I’ve had. While it may not be overly interesting, it definitely is easy to drink.
