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.
