4/5  rDev +8.1%

Burnt orange in color and a bit murky which was surprising for beer lagered for 4 months. Poured with a short off-white foam that quickly reduced to a wispy cap. Sweet, bready and caramel malt aromas at first followed by toasted malt, dark ripe fruit and herbal hops. On the heavier side of medium bodied with a big oily feel down the middle and spicy, tangy feel on the edges. Big sweet caramel malt up front followed by dark, fruity raisin-like sweetness. Toasted malt and spicy, herbal hops through the middle with expanding hop bitterness toward the end. Finished with a lightly crisp feel and a tangy herbal hop bite. Along with the big malty presence, the dark fruit notes were very unique.

Quite a good find I walked into my House of 1,000 beers and saw they were clearing these out for just 4 bucks a bomber marked down from 7.95. Into a pint glass.

A - Quite a deep shade of orange brown, very dark for a marzen. Clear looking with a 1/2 inch of off white head.
S - Really stands out with nutty and bready malts, some bittering hops, some skunk, and mostly caramel sweetness.
T+M - Quite good the body was on par maybe drank a bit heavy with a medium body. Just busting with sweet malts, bready malts, and very little skunked hops.

Overall not the best Oktoberfest but a very good malty version of one. Finished the bottle and wish I bought two for the price.

4.1/5  rDev +10.8%

22oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance
Brownish amber with 1 finger of off-white head that dissipates quickly. Very cloudy.

Nose
Toasted bread, caramel, nuts, banana bread and cocoa.

Taste
Caramelized brown sugar, toasted brown breads, molasses and nutty malts. Light notes of banana bread and cocoa nib. Finishes with an earthy and somewhat leafy hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, crisp, smooth and clean.

Overall
Ziggy Zaggy is brewed in March and cold conditioned for 5 months before its fall release. A lot of love from NCB in this one. A top notch Oktoberfest!

Growler from the brewery - poured into pint

Deep chestnut color with soft orange tones, topped by a frothy layer of beige head. Retains for a moment while drinking before fading, leaving a few spots of lacing on the glass. Nutty and malty in the nose with sweet caramel and leafy hops. Complex layering of malts on the tongue, mild sweetness with caramel and bread crust. Crisp and clean drinking - refreshing enough for the waning days of summer but flavorful enough for early fall.

Neshaminy's strong suit definitely appears to be their lagered beers, I'd be happy to see this make an appearance every fall.
