Superb example of a balanced and thoughtful Oktoberfestk Marzen. A nice strong beer for fall and beyond, with a nice hit of spices on the nose and a caramel finish. A great local Chicago beer.

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...

12 oz. can. Amber body. Smells of bread and some caramel malt. Slightly fruity. Corn? Tastes pretty fruity. Bready malt. Kinda has a corn taste as well. Fruity yeast back end. Slick mouthfeel. Medium light. I expected better from Revolution.

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 (6732) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 18, 2017
Can: 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 (1532) - 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 (5608) - 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!

jcr (2763) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 8, 2017
Can. Deep golden/light amber body. Frothy white head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of toasted grain, caramel, light earthiness, bread. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Sweet malts to start with yeasty (dough), grainy finish.

Beerowulf (129) - , Indiana, USA - OCT 6, 2017
Can into dimpled mug. Half finger head. Aroma of caramel. A smooth first impression. A hint of smoke and great malt backbone. Marzipan. Not a typical Octoberfest but a really good beer.
