Fresh filled growler from the Black Forest Brew Haus served in a glass beer mug.

Clear reddish/amber color with a fluffy beige head that left a trails of lacing on the glass.
Sweet caramel malt aroma with a hint of spices.
Terrific malty taste, a bit of a roasted malt flavor upfront becoming sweet with a light touch of bitterness on the finish, delicious.
Medium bodied with mild carbonation.
Very easy to drink, a fine Oktoberfest beer.
The brew haus chalkboard had this beer listed as 6.6% abv.

Pours a copper/amber color with an dense egg-shell colored head that left some real nice lacing on the glass. The aroma was that of a standard amber ale; some toasted malt, caramel, and a hint of butter. The taste is of toasted malt, metallic, caramel, lemon with a light hop bitterness. Moderate body with fizzy carbonation finishes slightly bitter. An enjoyable American Marzen style. I didn't pick up any munich malt or noble hops to make it a German style, more of a traditional amber ale. A must try during Black Forest's Oktoberfest week.

Poured a deep copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured an upfront sweet caramel malt and esthery yeast.

The taste consisted of a strong caramel malt, am esthery yeast and a light noble hop.

The mouthfeel was toward the heavier side of the style.

Overall a tasty and robust Octoberfest.

This beer has a wonderful amber color to it, almost akin to a pumpkin. It also shows great head when freshly poured. The beer is clean, has a pleasant smell, and has tremendous taste and mouthfeel. This is an oktoberfest that truly evaporates from the mug. I went through two of these before I knew it!
