3.76/5  rDev +13.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Presentation: Really good looking foil label that is very eye-catching. Label gives a bit of brewery info, web info, States “Brewed according to the “German Purity Law””. 11.2oz. Neck label is also very decorative.

Appearance: Warmed for 10min before aggressively pouring form 11.2oz green bottle into a 16oz English pint. Pours out very clear golden copper color with a 3 finger white airy foam head. Head retention was 4min 48sec before slowly fading to a thick foam coating and ring. Excellent lacing.

Smell/Aroma: Smells of bready malts with an earthy slightly floral hop accent.

Flavor/Taste: Tastes of bready yeasty malts on the front end with a nice earthy slightly floral hop bite at the midpoint that turns bready on the finish with a slight grain aftertaste.

MouthFeel/Drinkability: On the light side of medium bodied with a fair amount of carbonation. Easy drinking.

Overall/Comments: Overall a fairly unspectacular offering that is very respectable and very drinkable. I enjoyed this. Classified as a Marzen/Oktoberfest @ 5% ABV. Consumed 4/28/2013.

2.91/5  rDev -12.1%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Included in my latest shipment of Beer of the Month offerings. I like Marzens, but the timing is a little peculiar. Pours an unimpressive light amber color with almost no head at all. Nose is mild but grainy with a hint of sugar. Not terribly inspiring.

Interesting in that it seems very blase at first before the chocolate malts really start appearing in the finish and aftertaste. Brown sugar, baker's chocolate, dark fruit and a touch of crispy burnt notes. Also a touch of metal, but again, the finish is clean and tasty. Very little carbonation, which isn't a problem.

Not a Marzen I'd go out of my way for, even if it is from die Fatherland.

3.93/5  rDev +18.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Presentation: It was poured from a green bottle into a dimpled mug.

Appearance: The body has a nice copper color with good clarity and some light visible carbonation. It sports a small white cap of foam on top that fades slowly and leaves only traces of lacing.

Smell: Its aroma has a classic German malt and hop character. It brings fresh bready and sweet candy like notes mixed with herbal and spicy hops.

Taste/Palate: The aroma is mirrored exactly by its flavor. A mellow malty sweetness blends with a good balance of hop spice and herbal notes. The palate has pleasant carbonation and a soft feel making it very drinkable.

Notes: Overall I would say this is a very solid and well balanced example of the style.

3.45/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Chuggin' further with more tardy O-Fests. This one pours a clear honey-bronze topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises wheat, clove, honey, caramel, and light grass. There's a strange overlay of spices here, but it's nothing that lingers. The taste brings in more of the same, with a hint of orange peel tossed in for good measure. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a lightly oily feel. Overall, a nice little O-Fest. It's not gonna set the world ablaze or anything, but I'd gladly drink one beneath a tent in Munich.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Designated as a bargain beer at my local distributor ($4.99 for a sixer of 11.2 oz. bottles). Claims to be brewed according to the German purity law but has an alcohol-y, fortified taste even so. Not terrible but verging on headache material. I've heard their lighter version (a Pilsner?) is better.
