Poured a clearish reddish gold (copper?) with two finger head that dies slow and some lace patches. Aroma has some hops but is mostly bready and caramel malt based. OVerall, this is pretty close to a textbook marzen. A little sweeter than I'm accustomed to with this beer and it overpowers some of the hoppy nuances but the hops and dry finish are still there. Finishes crisp and with a bite thanks to some carbonation and the beer is balanced enough to make me want more. This is an Oktoberfest beer that you can't go wrong with.

Draft poured into a honeycomb mug. Not my favorite for tasting because it's hard to judge smell, but this style is meant to be consumed much faster than you can smell it. This is a great marzen. Crisp, slightly sweet, yet warming with plenty of body. Light carbonation (would never ever get this in a bottle) and a full mouthful lead me to believe that this is the tent I would camp out in for the Fest. Nuts and malts and Bavarian awesomness right here in VA.

I picked up a bomber of this yesterday at the brewpub since I didn't get around to tasting it while I was there. You pick and choose you're battles. Ynawhaimsayin?

Served in a DC Brau tulip.

A: Pretty much picture perfect. Clear, nutty almond-orange color with a sizable beige head.

S: Faint, yet fresh delightful. German malt bill along with sourdough and muted earthy sweetness.

T: Brown sugar on the forefront, but not in an overtly offensive way. Nutty and malty, crisp, and clean.

M: I'm so glad this wasn't overly sweet (like Great Lakes) and/or contain that "stomach acid" quality I often get with this style. The lacing and carbonation were nice.

O: Now, if they would put this in 6er and charge between $9-11 bucks, I'd be perfectly set for the fall season.

draft at Rustico, Alexandria, VA...

a: served in a tall pilsner style glass, light caramel amber in color, sporting a low head

s: nice little aroma on this one - clean plisner with a generous dose of slightly toasted german lager malts, a little nutty with some sugars on the nose, crisp grassy hops add a nice counter, dig it

m: carbonation moderate, creamy, medium bodied with a crisp finish

t: nice oktoberfest flavor - moderately malty with flavors of lightly toasted lager malts while maintaining a crisp pilsner back, slightly sweet, clean autumnal flavors, turning nicely towards a cleanly hopped finish and lingering grain flavor

o: a surprisingly nice oktoberfest, pulls off a clean lager while implementing plenty of that somewhat nutty german malt flavor

A: This poured clear gold with a little white head.
S: It smelled like rich nutty malt and sweet caramel, with bready yeast and a little copper hops.
T: It tasted like sweet earthy caramel and nutty malt, with sourdough bready yeast and copper hops. It had a clean and crisp bittersweet aftertaste.
M: It was watery with lots of carbonation. Light body.
D: This was a very nice Oktoberfest, with simple but nice scent and taste, and fitting body. Nothing exciting about this beer, but it was very easy to drink and enjoy. Another solid brew from Lost Rhino (although I really prefer the dubbel).

Happy to finally be able to finally find a bottle of one of their beers. I've been wanting to try something of theirs for a while. 220z bottle poured into my Stone nonic pint glass. It poured a clear copper color with an active white head filling the top inch of the glass. The head faded a little quick, but I liked the color a lot.

The aroma mixes some sweeter, grainy pale malts with toasty malts and some caramel. It's crisp with a little bit of a fruity presence coming out in it as well. very nice mix of flavors in the aroma for the style.

The taste starts out on the sweeter side with some caramel and the grainy malts playing a bigger role. Midway some of the toasty malts start to show and mix with a little bit of a herbal, bitter hoppiness in the finish. It starts a little sweet up front, but the finish has some nice balance to it.

The mouthfeel is on the lighter side with carbonation being moderate. Overall I thought it was a very nice version of the style. It was crisp and easy drinking and the toasty and sweet malts gave it some nice flavors. A very drinkable beer overall.

Im not the biggest fan of this style but really enjoyed this one. For me, thats a great indication of being a great beer.

The body was a bit thin for this style but overall really nice and easy to drinking.

The sweetness is balanced perfectly with a slight bit of toast / biscuit malty goodness.

I hope these guys continue to do well and create a strong prescience among local guys who brew great lagers.
