3.53/5  rDev +5.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

From a 330 ml bottle (code says L 189 M) into a nonic.

A-The brew is quite light in color for the style, a crystal-clear pale golden color. The head is thin, maybe a half-finger to start, and fades quickly. No lacing is left behind.

S-The smell is slightly grainy with some husk flavors, light alcohol heat, and a decently robust (but lightly colored) malt profile. It is simple, but not off-putting.

T-The taste is similar to the smell; simple, but not unusual or bad. I get some straw, light caramel, a bit of honey sweetness, and a bit of grain. Not much in the way of hops.

M-The feel is light to medium body with above-average carbonation. It drinks easily.

O-This is a lighter than average Marzen, and it is pretty simple to smell and taste, but not a terrible beer in my opinion. I am surprised by the alcohol's assertive character, which warms the brew, and mostly complements the sweet, light honey/malt profile. Not the best beer I've had this week, but easy to drink.

Typical light bodied herbal Oktoberfest
___

A: Pale golden yellow with a fleeting one finger off white head

S: Not very aromatic. What I'm getting is typical euro hops and a bit of dry bready malt.

T: Hop forward, on strong grassy, herbal, and spicy notes. Dry bready malt sits quietly underneath. There's something a bit 'mass production' about the taste, though not enough to ruin it.

M: Highly carbonated and just a hair on the thin side.

Thanks to Jim & Renee for this one!

Just had two in a row and realized it hadn't been reviewed.
Pale gold with a copious amount of foam, pour slow and its no big deal. Sudsy lacing all around the glass, lasting head retention and surface coverage. Bright clarity, looks more like a Helles, with steady trails of rising carbonation.

Hint of that green bottle skunk, boo. Light grain husk behind that.

Smooth creamy feel, lightly toasted grains, malty and smooth, crisp light apple note in the aftertaste which is fairly clean and dry. Very mild bitterness, 0.5/10 scale, barely there. Overall well put together, not overly flavorful, but it does the job with no flaws other than the mild skunk in the aroma.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a mug. Pours golden color with little head. Smells of some roasted grain but very weak. Tastes of caramel and sweet syrup very nice from the grain yet not overpowering. Beer is light bodied goes down great. Overall a slightly above average beer.

Serving type: on-tap
