3.29/5 rDev -8.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Attractive rich amber color with a modest head in the big chalice. Plenty of carbonation on the tongue but there's not much to look at in the glass. Has that gummy, grainy aromatic nose.
Warm and malty with a fairly substantial mouthfeel. Seems like the classic Marzen, though a little tired. Some resiny tang with just the slightest bitterness at the finish. Just a light caramel taste and slight lemony note. Hints of cardboard and honey with some lingering sweetness in the aftertaste.
This must be from last fall, but it's still plenty drinkable, though not one of my favorites. From the 12 oz can purchased at Special Brews in Lynnwood, Washington.

12 oz can poured into stein.
A - Semi-clear light bronze with a finger of off white head, which rapidly recedes.
S - Sweet and light smelling, with a hint of caramel bread and biscuit.
T - A somewhat light taste. Sweet and bready with caramel and the slightest hint of corn. It almost has a metallic finish to it.
M - Thin body with moderate-to-high carbonation. It's definitely crisp and refreshing. Easy to drink as well.
O - Not one of my favorite Oktoberfests, but it would be great as a football or campfire beer. It's crisp, refreshing, and easy drinking, with no real bold flavors.
