Pours a sparkling clear copper with a two finger fluffy white head. Aroma is clean, with some malt, sweetness, and a general beeriness. Taste is more pronounced with a nutty sweet malt, and a hint of toffee or caramel. Mouthfeel is thin, but for a drinkabke lager that is fine. Overall a pretty decent oktoberfest that balances towards malt and crispness.

Pours an effervecent apricot with a siver of cream colored head. Near zero head retention & lacing

S: Breadyness, hay, crackery notes, some mineral notes, just a lovely nose, nice perfumy hop notes

T: Follows the nose, a touch of pears & lemons up front. Dryness, maybe a touch of pineapple as this warms, a bit of white grape. Finishes fruity, grainy with dry-ish hay notes & a kiss of lemon

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, great balance

Super drinkability, a nice Marzen, easily one of the better ones I've had in several years

Pours a brilliant clear amber topped with a moderate frothy white head. Nice and bright.

Aromas of straw, caramel maltiness, grassy hops, and a clove-spiced candied citrus note that seems perhaps a bit out of place. Clean and simple.

Supple maltiness on the palate, smooth and rounded, finishing in a crisp but not sharp hoppy note. A little drying on the finish. Flavors of caramel, grainy bread, and a hint of grassy and floral hop notes. Well-rounded, malty but balanced, clean and drinkable.

Light to medium in body, firm but supple. Sessionable; would go great with brats and kraut.
