Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with white head. Caramel, biscuit, malty aromas. Caramel, syrup, biscuit, malty flavors. Sixth best of seven beer oktoberfest blind tasting. It has a distinctive taste, I picked it out, even though I haven’t had it in years.

On tap at Max and Erma’s. Pours a dark amber color with an off white head. Aromas of caramel and malt. Tastes the same with some nutty notes and bread flavors. Not bad. Light mouth feel.

12oz obttle. Clear amber pour. Not a whole lot nose-wise, a bit of caramel, a bit of burnt toffee; Pleasant malty backbone, with muted sweetness, but something a little astringent at the end. Good for an autumn’s evening.

On draft this pours dark copper and smells like over-cooked toffee. The palate is round and unstructured. I couldn’t finish a pint. Overall, this Octoberfest has put me off of Marzens until next year.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Malt slaps face like a candied whip, sounds like pumpkins breaking, the vines crackling under the wheels of a fat tired bicycle. Bronze like shit that’s really old but well taken care of because people keep coming back to what works. Tour guide on the label. Sweetness gets my teeth nervous, but maybe that’s just my pH. Putting it in a sauce of cabbage, roast chicken, ginger and garlic, with some sort of fancy white american cheese, and a piece of roll bread, a chicken and cabbage cheese steak. Heavy, for the fest goer who only wants to have one and not necessarily need to shit but still feel like shitting if it becomes an accommodating option. This one sort of battles it out, long and hard, with blunt instruments and high pitched shrieks, resulting in a drunk like a Ren Fest professional, mostly balanced but teetering under so much fermentation a rugby player might puke. I hope the dog that licks up that puke appreciates this fine brew, which even in that state surely tastes pretty good.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2016 Very good and easy drinking. Great malt sweetness and finishes clean. Caramel and sweet malts. Will most certainly buy again. A nice break from the IPA hop and bitterness. This is well crafted, delicious beer that goes down smoothly.
