3.9/5 rDev -7.8%
Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a pilsner glass, the beer is a copper coloring, with a filmy, clingy, white head. Aromas are very subtle, with caramel notes and toasty highlights. Flavors are rich, with nutty and caramel sweet notes. Very rich throughout. Smooth and crisp bodied, with a roasted sweet aftertaste. Clean, smooth finish. Wow! This is a very good beer.

Pours a beautiful amber color with very minimal head.
Faint but pleasant lager smell
A fuller taste than most American lagers.
A nice introduction to real beer for someone who drinks nothing but American big beers - they'll recognize its beer and also recognize the flavor and heft they've been missing.
We would order it again.

Pours a slightly hazy light amber gold, white lacing for a head.
Smells of honey, light citrus, and light sweet bready malts with a hint of clover.
Flavor is of light citrusy sweetness over a dry biscuity maltiness. Some very mild dry hoppiness in the aftertaste.
Medium body with crisp carbonation on the roof of the mouth.
Another very good beer from Meck, I continue to be impressed by this brewery's offerings. One of the best Marzen's I've had, really good flavor and aroma, balanced, nice body, and just a joy to drink. Delicious and worth seeking out.

A: Pours a crystal clear light golden amber in color with heavy amounts of active visible carbonation streaming from the bottom of the glass and some deep golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall creamy off-white head that reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of slightly bready malts and moderate amounts of caramel malts. Light to moderate aromas of floral and spicy hops in the background as well.
T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of slightly bready and caramel malts with just a hint of sweetness. There are light flavors of spicy and floral hops in the background which impart a light amount of bitterness which fades pretty quickly.
M: Slightly less than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Relatively smooth.
O: I really enjoyed this brew, it is a very solid American offering of the Oktoberfest style. I found it really easy to drink and enjoyable.

This is my beer of 2013. I haven't had a better, more perfect example of a style than OMB's Mecktoberfest. I've had other beers this year in which I might order over this beer just due to my preference, but this is a beer that outshines all others for the style, and I order at least one pint anytime I see it at a restaurant.
