a real average take on the style here. sweet up front, sweet down the back stretch, not real authentically german with the grain either, although the character of the grain is not my issue. i am looking for a more flavorful beer, caramel sweetness does not equal a marzen beer. the lager yeast has no flavor at all, and may not have finished its duty, while a thin body and slightly metallic tinge doesnt help. i get some apple in here, which works for a fall beer but may be a product of an off flavor. carbonation is fine, average body, standard feel. this is one of those styles that can be such an expression of the season, but this seems sloppy all over. the residual sugar is the biggest mark against it, but i did finish my glass, so it wasnt appalling by any stretch. not a great first beer from these guys for me.

I am a beginner home-brewer. I do not know all the technical terms yet to give a true educated review, beyond personal taste.

I am lucky enough to live right down the road from Florida Beer Company. I tried Conchtoberfest at a friends, and had to go pick up a keg. It's best kept around 38° with a serving temperature of 40°-46° degrees fahrenheit. I will be looking forward to this one every year now.
