3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle purchased at Binny’s, surprisingly haven’t had this until recently at Great Taste of the Midwest. Pours a translucent amber/golden brown in color with a small white head. Nose is a solid traditional marzen, there is toasted malt and some breadiness. There is also faint hops and some light spice. The flavor is a little hoppier than I would typically prefer, but it doesnt really detract from the beer. In addition to noble hops, I get toasted malt, some honey, and light spice. Light to medium mouthfeel, light carbonation, no booziness, and a moderate finish. Pretty solid domestic interpretation of a marzen, I will gladly grab another bottle or two of this to enjoy during football season. Great value at $5 for a 22 oz.
Can. Caramel malt and weedy hay aroma. Amber with moderate head. Moderately sweet caramel malt and moderately bitter weed/hay flavor. Good body. Nice solid Festbier. TAR (2802) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - NOV 25, 2017
Bottled on Sept. 13, 2017. Coppery golden. Loose eggshell head is quick to subside. Quiet nose of lemon, fennel seed, toasted bread, fallen leaves, and peach. Hints of grape soda, saccharine, wet paper, and alcohol. Tight but prickly carbonation. Flower nectar and peachy esters add layers of vibrancy to the moderately snappy body on entry. A note of wet leaves and a limp papery maltiness quickly sneaks in and hampers the malt structure. Underlying toasted bread struggles to firm things up, though it does impart ample richness. Some perceivable caramelization character as well, which provides a gripping effect while merging with the minerals, though it soon regresses into a basic caramel flavor. Hallertau-derived woody spice and underlying lemon oil brightens things momentarily. Not much malty dynamism to speak of, and certainly no melanoidins. Increasingly noticeable alcohol exacerbates the lack of malt depth by stinging the tongue, and a hint of saccharine and DMS arises late. Nearly cola-like at times, with notes of concord grape. Anticlimactic honeyed tobacco and woody-spicy-lemony hop finish falls off as the saccharine persists. A fairly sterile Festbier that feels like much of its soul has been lost to high levels of filtration. And the malt complexity or refinement just isn’t there. A number of flaws, too, albeit far from overpowering. Disappointing. markas101 (2529) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2017

DATE: November 12, 2017... OCCASION: a four-day weekend culminates with my last Oktoberfest of the year... GLASSWARE: personalized mug, a gift from one of my soccer players... this pours a pumpkin orange amber body with steady, lazy effervescence... head disperses from a thick, two-finger froth to a foamy quarter-finger off-white ring... first sensation is apple, earthy hop, light caramel, some toasty warmth, and some odd yeasty esters that make for a unique, if not odd, expectation... sips are heavy in the throat, sweet and swift through the mouth... a medium-bodied, easy-drinking mug-lifter that encourages the next sip... caramel is more prevalent in the taste than the aroma, while the earthiness comes across as pear, sweet apple, and toasted bread... finishes sweeter as the glass drains... malty, mellow, and worthwhile as a seasonal--my first Revolution is a diplomatic, friendly meeting...

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2017 A toasty malt smell, with a herbal/ hoppy note. Clear, maize color with a light tan head. Tastes of heavy sweet malt. The body of this brew is a solid medium, with a bitter finish Patrickctenchi (6809) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 18, 2017
Clear amber with a tall, yellowish-beige head.
Caramel, honey aroma.
Taste is sweet and light, caramel malt, a bit of fruit and toasted malt.
Not bad.....like an Oktoberfest Lite, though. Onslow (1540) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2017 Pour from 12oz can. Clear brown brew with small head that immediately dissapates. Aroma of light malt, tart friut, hint of grape jelly. Taste is toasted malt up front with modest tartness towards the end, again with the grape jelly, then finishing with woody malt and a hint of earth. Enjoyable. nearbeer (5665) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 8, 2017
12 oz. canned 08-11-2017. Clear orange-amber with a film of loose bubbles. Big aroma of honey, pear, toasted grain and spicy lemongrass. Flavor is honey, earthy toast, light apple and lemon zest. Near-medium bodied brew has the requisite big maltiness but maintains a delicate, drinkable balance. Medium-high fizz is my only knock on this otherwise excellent take on the venerable style. Thanks party Bob!
