Oktoberfest pours a darker golden color with a nice head. There isn't much of an aroma, carmalized malts come through, nothing different from any other Marzen. There is a nice spicy malty taste. Good full flavor, and easy to drink. Overall this is a solid Marzen beer, good full body, and strong taste.

A - Pours a wonderfully vibrant crystal-clear medley of bronze/orange/ruby with a one finger cream/beige head that fizzles to nothing fairly quickly.

S - Smell is quite nutty, along with some raw bread dough. Caramel/toffee is in there somewhere. If I dig deep I find some interesting notes of allspice and cinnamon.

T - Taste is nutty, and pretty much matches the aroma. very malt-forward, little to no hops detectable as is to be expected in a Bavarian Marzen. Some sweet fruits lurking in the finish. Actually tastes quite a bit better than I was expecting.

M - mild carbonation leads to a smooth body, allowing the rich flavors to coat the tongue amply

O - A delicious Oktoberfest that is dangerously drinkable, very on-point for the style.

Everyone is brewing a marzen these days, the exception to Lazy Monk's beer is the very European take on it. It pours a nice golden color with strong malt aromas. The hops are subdued on the nose, but very much in balance with the malt flavors. The beer could stand for a longer aging time and tastes a little green. Talking to the bartender in the tasting room it sounds like the brewery has a two to four week production time for each brew.
