12oz can poured into a tulip glass.

(A)- Pours a clear caramel colored amber-orange color. Produced some good off-white froth that stuck around for awhile before dissipating. Minimal lacing.

(S)- A nicely dry yet bread-like graininess meets the most subtle background sweetness in recent memory for an oktoberfest. Ever so tiny hint at a grassy hop-like aroma. The grainy yeast seems to be the predominant aroma.

(T)- I really dig the rustic nuttiness this has up front that is quickly followed by the great graininess and very subtle sweetness from the aroma. A great yeast component in the middle that really blends this beers whole profile together to make a really cohesive beer for the style. This succeeds where alot of oktoberfests fail; it is not overly sweet.

(M)- A great carbonation level. For an oktoberfest, this is quite smooth despite an ever present bready graininess. A mild sweetness balances well with the rustic nutty flavor this possesses. A superb balance for a style I have alot of love/hate experiences with.

(O)- I have not had many new Marzens this season so far, but I think this one really is a fantastic example of the style for me. Smooth, yet a good malt bill meets a nice rustic nutty graininess. Really digging alot of what Revolution is putting out and this is no different.

Revolution Brewing Company
Oktoberfest Revolution
Canned on 8/22/2014 (stamped on bottom of can)
Date Reviewed: September 16th, 2014
12 fluid ounce can
Glass of Choice: Nonic Pint

Eyes:
White head, a bit over an inch tall. A bit of lacing, not much though. Very clean looking copper/amber body with a few bubbles running around.

Nose:
Sweet and toasty malts: caramel and toasted grain. Not much from the hops: very faint notes of floral hops.

Mouth:
Very generous hit of malts up front. Primary notes of grains and toast. Very pleasant nutty tone throughout. Nothing overwhelming from the hops. Very minor herbal/floral notes contain a robust malty presence.

Overall: Good take on the Oktoberfest style. Great balance. Very smooth. Great session brew.
