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.

3.52/5  rDev -9%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 22 oz bottle into a German style mug.

Appearance: The body has a nice deep amber color with very good clarity but it’s light tan head faded out quickly. I am now left with a naked beer and no lacing.

Aroma: The nose is light overall. I get light sweet and bready malt notes with hints of herbal and earthy hops.

Taste/Palate: Up front there’s some lightly sweet malt carrying some light caramel and toffee like notes. Hop notes add balance and an earthy character which leads into the finish. The feel is firm and softly carbonated.

22 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a very pretty, clear, dark, mahogany color with an eighth of a finger of white-colored head that quickly dissolved away into some wispy clouds of foam that partially covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Nice aromas of bready, toasted malt, imparting notes of freshly baked biscuits and freshly toasted bread. There are also notes of caramel, and brown sugar, black pepper, and a touch of grassy, piney, hops.

Taste: Delicious! Lots of toasted malt up front, imparting bready, biscuit-lilke overtones, followed by some caramel and brown sugar-like sweetness, some black pepper and very little in the way of hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and very smooth as there is very little in the way of carbonation. With an ABV of 5.5%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a fantastic American-version of an Oktoberfest beer! This will definitely be in my fridge every Autumn! Very, very, delicious and highly, highly recommended!

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.

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
