4.33/5 rDev +16.4%
Appearance: Thin caramel syrup with little lacing or foam. Nice in a snifter.
Smell: Very medicinal; reminds me of Coca-Cola with the bitterness and sweetness.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Again, very medicinal. There's definitely some sort of plant brewed with this. The waitress told me what but I can't remind exactly what it is. Very evident though. Tasty too! Definitely more bitter than sweet, but it balances both pretty well. Light mouthfeel like a lager. Crisp.
Overall: A cool take on a seasonal classic.

Served in a 5 Rabbit pint glass at Fountainhead 12/30/11. Thanks to HeatherAnn for the assist!
A: Served a hazy deep amber with 1/2 a finger of creamy eggshell colored foam on top. A few specks of lace struggled to hang onto the glass. Liked the clarity of this.
S: Interesting combination of Pfeffernüsse and Windmill cookies. Holiday spices with dry toasty malt and a hint of roasted nuts.
T: Exactly as above.
M: Nice full mouthfeel with hints of spice and pepper.
O: Interesting take on this style. Heath and I typically don't gravitate towards Marzens but after reading the description we couldn't resist.

3.3/5 rDev -11.3%
Served in a New Holland tulip glass at Bad Apple.
Yeah, it's a touch past the Day of the Dead (I apparently have strong hands...), but whatever... This stuff pours a clear russet topped by a finger of lightly off-cream-white foam. The nose comprises toffee, biscuit, light honey, very light cocoa, and a kiss of cinnamon. The taste holds notes of light toffee, mild vanilla, light vinyl, earthy greens, and light brown sugar. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a decent marzen, but that vinyl character in there really put me off, and there was no hint of the sweetness implied by the description.

On-tap at Jake Melnick's. Served in a taster stange.
A - Quick-dissolving off-white foam settles to a thin ring and a few wisps on top, but minimal lace is left behind. Lightly hazed amber body.
S - This is odd - the beer smells like gingerbread cookies. There's some lightly toasty malt character too, but mostly it's a mix of cookie sweetness, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice. I'm guessing the spices are from the Hoja santa.
T - Again, quite strange for an Oktoberfest. There's a toasty malt backdrop, some caramel sweetness, red fruits, sugary cookies, and pumpkin pie-esque spices.
M - Pleasant medium carbonation, medium body, smooth texture, no alcohol, clean finish.
D - If you've ever wondered what would happen if you crossed a pumpkin spice beer with an Oktoberfest, this is pretty much the answer. It's definitely unique, and not entirely 'my thing', but it's solidly crafted and delivers what it promises.
