Pours a huge, soapy, tan head that laces well. Sweet malt and spicy hop aroma, becomes almost astringent as the head settles. Ruby-crimson color. Starts with a toasted malt/caramel flavor. Builds to a low-medium bitterness. Caramel is sustained throughout.

I am not a fan of caramel flavors, and I am definitely not a fan of them in an Oktoberfest, so this isn't for me - at all. This is a total miss on what makes the style what it is.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark bronze color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is bready, nutty. Taste is also bready, toasted malts a bit of nuts. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer. I have to agree with the previous reviewer, this does drink more like a brown ale than a marzen.
