A great local version of an Oktoberfest classic. Locally brewed by Two Bros. They nailed this one! damayor---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone Teg12 (2) - - APR 22, 2017 does not count
Nice balance of simple physics with a touch of pop. No huge hoppy explosion. Not too sweet or sour. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2016
Poured into a perfect pint.
3.5 A: Clear light orange color. Two fingers of frothy/creamy beige head. Retention is about average and lots of spotty lacing is left.
5.0 S: This smells absolutely wonderful. Toasted malts, layers of caramel, and that lager yeast twang. Oak adds a nice layer of complexity with vanilla contributions. This is whatever the olfactory version of "smooth" is. It’s just such a pleasant, subtle nose.
4.5 T: The taste can’t live up to the nose, but that’s okay since it’s still delicious. Caramel and toasted malts, subtle vanilla, and a light metallic lager yeast flavor. Everything is right where it should be.
4.75 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Silky smooth with a pleasant creaminess. Near perfect here.
5.0 D: The best octoberfest beer I’ve had this season. It may not have bold flavors or a ton of complexity, but it’s so subtly well done, that it’s a near perfect beer.

Alcohol taste and smell with this beer. Kind of bready with alcohol lingering within the taste. Sits ok on the palate. Not what I would call a oktoberfest beer,very poor example. coburn_c (12) - Indiana, USA - NOV 1, 2017
Smells sweet and lager-y. Nice copper glow and great lacing. Tastes sweet and light like a marzen should, but with a nite bite of hop on the finish. Thicker than any other marzen I've had, which is my favorite thing about it. Can't stand a sweet beer with no body, like drinking sugar water. Can't detect the oak outside of the thickness, then again I drink whiskey.

Poured from the bottle of a six pack into a pint glass. This beer tastes every bit as strong as it is, nothing is hidden. Some bitter, a lot of sweet, and big alcohol content. I’m always looking for beer which is strong and doesn’t taste like dog sh*t, It’s too bad I’ll have to wait till next year for this one to come around again.
