12oz bottle into a snifter. The brew appears a clear copper color with an off-white creamy topping. Some stringy lace sticks to the glass as the cap fades.

The smell includes notes of caramel and toffee malt with minerals and almost a perfume sort of alcohol inclusion.

The taste too includes minerals and is carbonic with a bit of perfume alcohol. Some herbal hops, slightly citrus feel overtop toffee, caramel and buttery diacetyl into the finish.

This is medium to light bodied with a modest amount of carbonation. It is crisp but overall just ok.

Pours a rich reddish brown with a thin white head.

The smell is earthy, malty, caramel.

The taste is caramel and earthy. Tastes good but not very complex.

The feel is light with medium carbonation.

Overall drinkable but far from the best marzen out there.

A: Pours a clear copper with a finger of off-white head that fades into a thin ring with little lacing.

S: Caramel, crystal, and Munich malt aromas on the nose with some burnt toffee and sweet floral hop notes.

T: Similar malt profile here with a hearty bread flavor dominating. There are also notes of burnt sugar, caramel, and piney hops. The finish is a little more bitter than usual for the style, but not overwhelming.

M: Medium-light body with medium carbonation, this beer isn't quite as crisp as I'd like, but avoids being watery.

O: A unique and solid interpretation of the style. It's definitely a lot hoppier than most Marzens, but it works well.

Had this one at the source on a past ticking trip to Asheville! Served from tap into a Green Man sampler shaker. Poured yellow-orange with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, earth, wheat, grain, and subtle spice. The flavor was of sweet malt, wheat, grain, earth, and subtle earth hop. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. Upon first inspection it was quite easy to pick up on the style of this brew which was really nice. It had a nice earthy character going on with some nice hints of grain and spices. This really made me look forward to taking a sip to see if this carried on to the flavor. While it did, it just didn't have a huge bit of complexity going on and seemed somewhat one-dimensional. Granted for the style it was definitely above average. Definitely worth your time if you are a Marzen fan to stop by Dirty Jack's and have a pint of this one if it is in season. You won't regret your decision. Tick.

12 oz bottle of the traditional Oktoberfest bier.

Body should have higher clarity but has a fine dark amber tone and a durable head.

Aroma: mild and pleasing, with some spicy/herbal hops mixed in with the light roasted and caramel malts.

Flavor: mild and pleasing. I'd like more boldness but, as usual for style, this beer is more designed for 'session' drinking than slow sipping.
