On draft, pours a very clear light orange copper. Fizzy head coats the top and lingers.

Nose is a lot of wheat, earthy, malt and grain with a caramel backbone. The flavor is mild hops, grains, straw, bread dough. Moderately sweet with a clean dry finish. This is balanced and refreshing.

Pretty good interpretation. I like it.

10/12/11 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Slightly heavy on the tongue but worth it's weight. Good balance.

Had semi high hopes for this baby, but was much thinner than I'd hoped, especially for 5.8 ABV.
Fill in all the blanks, it tasted and looked like an Oktoberfest, but there are better options out there.
I've been enjoying RT 113 IPA and Hop Odyssey DIPA, but this is just average in a very clustered Marzen field...

Can purchased at Acme Bar and Pizza in Rochester, NY.

Pours a slightly hazy brown color, with a half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells a little bit malty, toasted bread, and strong lager yeast.

The lager yeast in this one is strong, and a little bit skunky, honestly. When it's colder, the skunkiness is less apparent. A bit of toasty and bready malt flavor as well. This one is fairly sweet, too.

This one is light bodied, and a little bit watery, with low carbonation, keeping it a little flat.

This one fell a little bit short, honestly.
