look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pours a clear orange. Very minimal head. Retention is basically non existent.
Smell is pretty faint. Some wheat and grain. A hint of spice. Nothing special here.
Taste is decent. A little more spice than what's present in the nose. Wheat. A bit watery. But decent.
Mouthfeel is okay. Could be more carbonated.
Overall this is a decent beer. Nothing to seek out but would be good on a hot day.

12 ounce can into dimpled mug; no canning date, but from 2013. Pours slightly hazy orange copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, pear, apple, floral, herbal, light pepper, light nuttiness, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt and yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toast, biscuit, toffee, floral, pear, apple, herbal, light pepper, light nuttiness, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, toast, biscuit, toffee, herbal, floral, pear, apple, light pepper, light nuttiness, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and robustness of malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a fair amount of yeast esters with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Oktoberfest style. All around good balance and robustness of malt and moderate yeast ester flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

M - A slightly creamy consistency with a moderately low carbonation.
O - Not my style but a good, easy drinking beer.

Revolution's Oktoberfest is a mixed beer, yielding some pleasant toast and bread flavors, but also some unwanted harsh, medicinal herbal characters from the hops. While not my ideal Marzen, I appreciated many of the beer's flavors and its full, satisfying mouthfeel. A bit of work on the aromatics would make this a beer I'd revisit in the future.
Pours a 1.5cm tall head of light beige-colored foam, made up of small bubbles and presenting a somewhat frothy appearance. Retention is below average, lasting less than a minute in decline to a thin ring around the glass and some small islands of residual foam atop the body of the beer. Lacing is not present. Body is a dark golden orange to light brown color, with light bringing out bright orange hues. Carbonation visible through the semi-hazy body (20% opacity), though few in number and rather sluggish.
Aroma is extremely subdued, though can be roused, somewhat, by swirling the glass. What arises is a sweet and herbal concoction that has elements of light toast, caramel, and nearly medicinal herbal elements. Aside from its minimal nature, what I do smell is not particularly pleasant.
Front of palate tastes sweet Munich and Vienna malt extract, lightly toasted bread, hints of hop spiciness and dried-leaf-likeness. Mid-palate continues with a blend of sweet, lightly toasted bread courtesy of Munich and Vienna malts, but increases the hop bitterness, spiciness, and dried-leaf-likeness to a point where a bit of medicinal quality comes forth, unwanted. Back of palate experiences spicy hops with moderate bittneress and lesser toasted bread and caramel flavors (these are well in the background at this point). Aftertaste is of pleasant toasted bread with hints of cracker and light hop bitterness.
Beer is medium to medium-light in body, with carbonation of medium to medium-low intensity, creating a full and mostly foamy mouthfeel that manages to never come across as fizzy. Closes dry, with moderate stickiness coating the palate and lips.
