16OZ Can > Mason Pint

A - Hazy orange with a finger of white soapy head, little spots of lacing.
S - Sweet malt, fresh bread, a little estery fruit, toasted caramels.
T - Tart fruits bread malt, a really bitter off-flavor that I cannot figure out at this time.
M - Soapy and slick really bad aftertaste.
O - I dont know what is goin on in this beer but there is a horrible acrid bitter flavor that is really detracting a lot.

On-tap 10/5/2012 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI, served in a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color, with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, fruit, lager yeast and some hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of caramel and fruit. Then some breadiness comes in from a hearty malt character and lager yeast. The hops presence I s mild but complementary and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style, it’s a solid Octoberfest beer but there are others I would pick first.

Consumed 10/3/13

Appearance: Medium-deep amber, with some nice orange and deep gold - pours with a medium sized, eggshell white head - fades to a near-solid cap, leaves some nice lacing - nice clarity

Smell: Caramel and some cooked grains - nicely cooked and caramelized, not too much, nice malt profile for the style - some herbal and floral hops - some light sweetness, with a touch of light fruitiness

Taste: Yup, it's Oktober - cooked, caramel malts - and as the aroma suggests, it's a nice level of cooked, not syrupy - grainy, with some decidedly amber malts - nice hops, with some grassy and herbal notes - light bitterness, but mostly sweet

Mouthfeel: Medium body, nice carbonation, smooth, could finish a bit dryer

Overall: Autumn breeze, makes me feel fine, or something

This is a good Märzen / Oktoberfest. Or at least, I think it is. I suppose it's possible I've never had a great example of this style, as I've never had one that I would really describe as "great." This is about as good as Narragansett Fest, maybe a little better.

16oz. can served in a nonic. Pours a reddish-brown hue with a slight haze and a quarter inch white head. Nose expresses malt, sour mash, figs or prunes and a whiff of wet cardboard. Taste consistent with nose; however, there is less of a fruit presence in the flavor profile and an earthy noble hops bitterness that lightly lingers between quaffs. Mouthfeel is light-medium (but closer to light) with a crisp carbonation. Overall, an okay Marzen but I think this one may be a bit old as I've had it at the brewery and thought it was much better at the time.

16oz Tall Boy. Pours a translucent golden brown color with a half inch of head. Some lacing. Aroma is malty with some honey, caramel, and bread. Floral hop notes. The taste follows the aroma. Caramel malts, cereal, and floral hops. Slight honey flavor throughout. Nice amount of flowery bitterness. Light bodied. Happy to see an Oktoberfest in a 16oz can. Overall, good Oktoberfest that I'd buy again. Drinkable and balanced.
