COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Bavarian-style Oktoberfest bier brewed with the finest Bavarian malted barley, aromatic German noble hops and traditional yeast brewed in strict accordance with the German bier purity law of 1516, the Reinheitsgebot. This rich malty lager is one of the few that remain true to the tradition of fest beers originally brewed to honor the marriage of Prince Ludwig in 1810. We hope you enjoy this fall offering. Es is nicht normal. Prosit."

Bottle courtesy of Greg. I think. Either way, he is pretty swell, so I will give him credit here. Hopefully this was from Joe. Suck it, Redner. Amber orange body, slightly hazy. Small, tight dirty white head that has some decent retention and light lacing. I like the color on this one so I will bump the appearance up a bit. Citrus fruits, floral hops, grapefruit hops, caramel and some malty notes make up the interesting nose. Flavor profile is pretty dead on with the nose, with the floral hops taking center stage to my palate. Medium bodied with some good carbonation that makes it feel heftier than it probably is. Finish is medium length, caramel sweet and floral, with a touch of citrus bite. Good.

Bottle from trade. Pretty nice for a style I have really really enjoyed only a few of. This is straight forward bread and toffee...well done. Surprisingly not as richly malty as my favorites in style.

TAR (2708) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - JAN 20, 2016
Rusty orange. Straightforward but pleasant aroma of plum, honeyed toast, cookie, hazelnut and hay. Fluffy carbonation. Full body. Punchy Munich gives substantial weight as do plummy esters. Good textural grip to the deep toast, which hints at melanoidins at times and adequately wards off any excessive plummy slickness. Lovely blend of tobacco softness, hay dust and marzipan extends from the well-extracted maltiness. Dab of floral notes adds a refined touch and softens the body. Finishes beefy, fully malty and toasty, with toasted bread and restrained hop spice lingering. A straightforward example, and a tad underattenuated to me, but thankfully it is a serious rendition and not dry-hopped or something silly or Americanized. Pretty easy to like. The $10 price tag is very unreasonable, though. For around $3.00 a bomber, I’d be drinking this again.

22oz bottle. Bit of banana and sweet malt. It is a bit rich for this style of beer. Not bad.

Draught. One lite Mass! Light hazy deep amber liquid with medium to big off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, citrus grain, bread, light toast and earth. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of bread, nuts, toast, floral hops and citrus. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Nice, drinkable and modern. Quite hoppy for a Märzen.
