12oz brown bottle, sample from the brewery.

Mild haze within the orange amber hue, frothing sizes up well and leaves a good amount of lacing on the glass. Toasted grain, fresh hay, herbal hop, & bread in the nose. Crisp and smooth, just enough body for the style. Rich malty palate throughout. Toasty, bready, grainy, & grassy. Perfect level of hop bitterness and lots of herbal hop flavor. Easy to knock this one back, would love to see tallboy cans. Will be visiting this beer every fall.

Served on tap in a pint glass.

Appearance: Brownish amber color, off white head. Mild lacing on the glass.

Smell: Hops, malt and some earthy tones.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste was bitter and not much else, hints of some earthy notes, but had to distinguish exactly what.

Overall: Typical Oktoberfest in my opinion, nothing special, but not bad to drink.

On tap poured into a plastic pint glass.

Pours a nice deep amber with a small thin light brown head. Nose is light, sweet and malty.

Taste is crisp and malty with a really biscuity. Mouthfeel us full and thick. Very easy drinking as it should be. Decent example.

Had on tap at Doc Ponds in Stowe, served in a tulip glass. Pours amber color, clear, with a nice head. Smells of sweet malts and grain, a hint of fruit. It's got a solid flavor, sweet, toffee, fruit, finishes with a touch of herbal hops at the end but not bitter enough. Easy to pound a few of these but with the tap list at Doc Ponds it was easy to switch to another. Good marzen here.

Clear copper pour with zero head/retention/lacing. Looks kinda silly without any foam on top. Aroma starts to make up for the appearance, with some nice caramel, bread, and slight floral notes. Flavor is even better, full of nice malt breadiness. Very little carbonation is to my liking, making for a very smooth semi-sweet finish. One of the better of the style I've sampled.

Bottle from Bert's
Deep golden color with a small tightly bubbled white head. Sweet bready pilsner maltiness with a touch of spice and just a hint of fruit. Pretty nice stateside version of a German Lager, most don't do it this well.

This beer pours a cloudy dark golden color. A thin creamy white head forms in the pilsner glass that it came in. Some small very dispersed bubbles inside the glass indicates a slight carbonation. Aromas of caramel, malt, and sweetness. The first sip gives you flavors of caramel, malt, and a hint of maple. While the beer is crisp almost dry with a pleasant sweetness. A good drinking beer.
