3.55/5  rDev -5.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

22oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a hazy amber; huge fluffy off-white head that fades slowly and leaves great lacing and retention. The aromas are very malty. Lots of caramel and butterscotch. Flavors are very syrupy and grainy. They're earthy, but remain sweet. Lots of toast. Some cherries and corn in the mix. More caramel malts. Subtle hints of toffee. Finishes with a light warmth. Mouthfeel is heavy, fluffy, creamy, syrupy and slick. There's moderate carbonation. Pretty filling.

This a lager that drinks more like an ale. It definitely has marzen characteristics, with a Three Floyds' twist. It's not exactly a traditional example of the style, but it's close enough and is still enjoyable. The craftsmanship is clearly there.

3.64/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours amber in color with slight hues of red. Light Tan 1 finger head retains nicely.

Smell has some clean slightly lemony yeast notes that suit the medium complexity grainy malt back end nicely. Hops are very light and have slightly herbal spice notes.

Malt is forward in the taste and has some biscuit flavors before the slightly toasted lager yeast flavors come through. No off fruity flavors are present and sweetness is low with a very little herbal hop but a bit of bitterness.

Mouthfeel is crisp clean and has a very dry finish.

Overall it was a decent Octoberfest, nothing to rave about but that tends to be the case for me with this style it very rarely wows me if at all.
