3.85/5 rDev +2.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
16.9oz brown bottle with a mention of it being a 2012 fall release on the label ... better than no freshness date.
LOOK: Sunset orangey copper hue, very clear with ample frothing
SMELL: Fresh hay, toasted bread, grape skin, clean, floral, spicy hop
TASTE: Full malt jacket, grassy, grapenuts, herbal hop, bread crust, semi-clean, slight sweetness, hint of alcohol, long grainy finish
Very well put together, if this was a bit cleaner it would give its German counterparts a run for their O-fest. I'll be visiting this lager more often than other O-fests this year.

500 ml bottle poured into pilsener glass.
A - Outstanding looking beer. A beautiful orange-amber with lot's of carbonation rising, as well as visible bubbles on the glass. Very clear beer, no haze. Only thing keeping this beer from a pefect appearance rating is a smallish head. Still though, one of the prettier beers I've seen in a while.
S - Pretty much what a Marzen usually smells like: Dankness, ferment, a general bitterness. Also detected a bitter flower aroma, and a touch of dandelion.
T - Oh, how do you say SMOOTH Oktoberfest? The upfront taste itself is quite normal for a Marzen: A general bitterness, very mild malts without much sweetness, light hints of grass and wheat. However, the late taste and aftertaste are it's strength. So smooth, the light bitterness plays off the very small amount of sweetness the malt provides.
F - Incredibly smooth and refreshing. Yes it's slightly thick, but man, is this a smooth beer that I wish I would have bought more of. If I could find this stuff cheaper, I could drink many of these.
O - A great Oktoberfest, certainly amount my favorites of the style, if not my top one. Great looking beer, all the mild flavor of an Oktoberfest, with incredible drinkability. Highly recommended.
