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.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewery taproom.
Actually, this didn't seem very revolutionary. A nice, orthodox Marzen. Very smooth and tasty.
