Had on tap at Fat Heads. Review from notes.

A: Pours a clear orange/amber color with a small white head that leaves a nice white cap on top.

S: Some caramel and bready malt, a bit of toasted malt and some grassy hops on the back end.

T: More caramel, lightly toasted grains, some bready malt, and some faint earthy/grassy hops.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation with a clean finish.

O: A decent marzen, just not really my favorite to drink.

Enjoyed this on tap at Fat’s head.

A: Pours a copper-amber hue with a 1-finger head that quickly dissipates into a persistent lace.

S: Not a huge aroma – hints of toasted malts and earthy hops.

T: Slightly bitter with a caramel bready flavor.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Decent beer – but no where no the caliber of some of their other beers.

Served on tap into a pint glass at the brewpub

A- Poured a brownish red color with one finger of frothy head that left some decent lace

S- Pretty muted aroma, some sweet malts and light biscuit aroma

T- Biscuit, caramel, and earthy notes.

M- Smooth, some decent carbonation, easy drinking

O- An easy drinking marzen beer that didn't wow, but was a beer that went down easy. None of the nutty flavors or aromas I really like in an Oktoberfest.

Enjoyed on tap at Cleveland brewpub. A decent beer, though nothing exceptional for it or the style. Neutral aroma neutral taste,neutral apparance. A little creamy. Decent drinkability.Nothing offensive, but would want a little more maltiness, hoppiness and or smoke.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Pours a clear copper color with a nice foamy white head. Head becomes a layer of bubbles and leaves some nice layered lacing.

S- Smell is toasted grains, crackers, and earthy hops. Also picking up some rye like spices.

T- A nice bready start, a bit of toffee, grainy and a bit of rye. A very solid example of the style.

M- Medium in body and good carbonation.

D- A pretty solid brew and a great change of pass since I usually on drink this style during the fall shocking I know.

On tap at Fat Heads

A- Pours a dark coppery orange brown color. One finger white head shows medium retention. Streaks of lacing on the sides of the glass.

S- Caramel malts in the front of the beer. Toasted malts are also present. Doughy throughout the entire nose. Light noble hops in the ending of the aroma.

T- Caramel malts come in the front once again like the aroma. This comes off as doughy mostly. Light toasted malts do come out toward the middle of the beer. Some light biscuity malts in the ending combine with noble hops adding a little more depth to the beer. Light warming alcohol in the ending as well.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is good for the style. Caramel malts and toasted malts are left on the palate. Aftertaste is mostly toasted malts, noble hops, and light alcohol. Flavors were very well put together for this style. No off flavors were present at all while drinking this beer. Light alcohol drying on the palate.

D- ABV is low enough to really enjoy this beer over and over again. I am not really one for Oktoberfest styles but this beer is actually very good. This place has surprised me a couple of times now with their beers. I will make this a must go to stop each time I am in the area.

On tap at Fat Head's.

Pours a moderate copper color with a good white head with decent retention and some mild lacing as it goes down. The nose is slightly caramelized, though is comprised mostly of some doughy bread crust. A touch of grain as well. Some sweetness. The taste adds in a bit of continental European hops and some herbal and earthy qualities, though the baking aspects continue to man the fort. Mouthfeel is light to medium with good carbonation. Drinkability is pretty good, though nothing I would go out of my way to have again.

Had on tap at Fatheads Pgh.

A: Pours a bright dark orange brown color with a two finger foam head that dissipates to a film. There is some moderate lacing.

S: A little faint, but a decent amount of toast, crackers and caramel.

T: The beer starts off a with a sweet and toasty flavor of caramel and toast. In the middle the noble hops become slightly prevalent, giving the beer a nice balance. The beer finishes with a toasted grain flavor.

M: Leaves a dry and slightly bitter taste on the palate.

D: This is a nicely balanced beer, certainly tasty. One of the btter Oktoberfest beers I have tasted.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured a cark golden orange body with a good head and some lace on top of a rather mild, airy aroma with hints of spice, a bready/grainy malt base and just barely any caramel or earthy hops. A light body that's slick, even a tad watery, with a dry hoppiness that is pleasant and has a grainy bitterness. Sweetness is minimal and for some reason I find that this is a very light marzen and I didn't enjoy it that much yet I could easily have a few and love it.
