Poured from tap. Pours an amber color with a nice head.
Balanced aromas of crackers, grains, some citrus and noble hops. Everything is in place, but it isn't the deepest either.
Medium body with a nice feel. It is lacking somewhat on the mid and finish along with notes of crackers, noble hops and some citrus tones as well.
This is a solid Oktoberfest beer. Not necessarily amazing, but still good with nice balance across the feel and aromas.

Served in a nonic pint glass at the brewpub.
Starting my day off right with an O-Fest at Haymarket. This stuff pours a clear amber topped by a finger-and-a-half of light cream-white foam. The nose comprises mild toffee, very light orange zest, and light grass. The taste holds notes of earthy toffee, grass, greens, and a barely perceptible twinge of orange rind. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a solid O-Fest. It's nothing to get excited about, but it's generally enjoyable.

On-tap poured into 16oz glass.
A: Pours a golden amber with a thin white head that leaves a spotted cap with minimal lacing.
S: You get some caramel malts coming through the nose with some hoppy-citrus scents.
T: A surprisingly hoppy marzen. Light while loaded. Bready character with an overpowering abundance of hops with faint caramel malt.
M: Medium body with a hop bite and good warming. Nice mouth coating and finish. Lacked the "chewy" characteristic of octoberfests.
O: A unique marzen with its hoppy character and near red ale hop bite. It still packed the traditional caramel malts making it a good session beer. Definitely worth a try.

On-tap at Haymarket. Served in a 4oz taster glass.
A - Again, filled to the brim. A thin cap of foam lingers, and leaves behind splotchy lace. The body is a transparent dark golden color.
S - Bread and toasted grains, fairly malt-forward with some fruity citrus character as well. There's some herbal hoppiness, as well as a light phenolic note.
T - Bread, toasted grains, a bit of sugary sweetness. Light herbal bitterness, but otherwise it's straightforward lightly sweet malt. Again, pleasant, but understated.
M - Medium body, grainy texture, smooth and juicy. Lower carbonation and a clean finish.
D - Nothing special - I think I preferred this by a very small margin to the Revolution offering. Solid take on the style that won't disappoint nor will it wow you.
