I really most oktoberfest marzen but this on special.

Appearance=Red/orange in color and two finger head.

Smells=smell caramel and herbs and a hint of vanilla

Taste =. The taste has nice sweet and bitter balance, with malty, caramel and sourdough. It followed by light aromatic bitterness that complements the finish

Mouthfeel =The carbonation is soft which make for a very smooth texture

Overall= It is very very smooth,this is great oktoberfest marzens that you can enjoy. Very well done !

I will start right out and admit that this is one of my all-time favorite beers. It is a gorgeous pour with a nice amber color topped with a creamy head, The aroma is malt dominated with a warm caramel aroma lingering above the hop spiciness. The tast is why I love this beer, a full explosive malt flavor dominated with rich caramel and subtle hops spiciness lingering in the mouth. When the first hints of fall are in the air, I could come back to this rich and flavorfull beer again and again. Now if only I could sample the Paulaner Oktoberfest in Germany!

Wow! This is really fantastic. Pours a deep mahogany with very little head but decent lacing. My bottle says it was brewed on 2/04...oops. It really has held up beautifully though. The aroma is of raisins, caramel and brown sugar. Flavor is a molasses malt profile initially, more raisins, and toffee with a nice mild hoppy bite on the finish to keep it crisp. Everything is so clean and drinkable, yet very complex. The mouthfeel is substantial enough to feel slick on the palate, yet it is also very clean, crisp, and refreshing. I will be buying more of this. Highly Reccomended.
