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. (468 characters)

on tap at Fatheads last Friday, 16oz pour in a standard pint glass

A - about a fingers worth of slightly frothy white foam sits atop a light copper colored, crystal clear beer. impressive thin layer of lacing after almost every sip.

S - lightly toasted grains, stale wheat crackers, slightly spicy earthy hops. like a pale/light Headhunter.

T - kicks off with stale bread or unflavored croutons, very crisp and sharp. abundant amount (for the style) of noble hops step in, with a unique spicy and slightly citrus flavor.

M - medium bodies and a bit on the slick side despite being so clean flavored. moderate carbonation.

D - was sticking to some lighter beers for the evening and this was by far my favorite. very smooth and pleasant, yet had enough unique characteristics to keep it interesting. would love to see this on the menu more often. (850 characters)

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. (266 characters)

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. (1,230 characters)

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. (545 characters)

Pours a clean orange-ish to yellow color, with an off white head. In the aroma, an earthy sweetness. In the taste, semi dry earthiness and a small hop. A small hop bite and medium to light mouthfeel, with a semi dry earthiness in the aftertaste. Nice fest beer, with a nice hop presence. (287 characters)

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. (367 characters)

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. (449 characters)
