Bottle label data: ENJOY BY 12/20/14

The body is crystal clear with a deep gold hue and a one-finger thick, lasting white head. Fruity aroma, like peach and apricot with a mild, malt undertone. The taste mimics the aroma with a bit more grainy bread flavor; rather sweet. Medium mouthfeel; kind of coarse on the palate; dry finish.

A decent beer but there is a little too much overt sweetness that works its way into the overall flavor. Hop bitterness stays low-key and takes some of the sweetness out of the picture. Worth a try...

I've had this before on draught but never from a bottle. Pours, as advertised on the label, with "an orangish hue color," which leaves me reeling from the grammatical indifference of that descriptor, but this is about beer. The aroma is malty and nutty, slightly herbal, with the faintest hint of booze. Hits the palate hard with dark cherry, malt, and bready goodness. A little molasses, even a bit flowery. The mouthfeel is slippery and moderately carbonated. It goes down like a dream and leaves the slightest hint of bitterness on the back end to remind you that you did indeed drink something, however at 5.8% abv, that realization is going to come to you sooner or later. Great marzen, and like other stuff from Prost, highly drinkable. I'd probably opt for GD Hoss in place of this given the option, but would recommend this to any fan of Oktoberfest.

Quick review:

Light copper color with okay head. Aroma is bready, biscuity and fruity. Taste is also biscuity and bready, but with a strong fruity sweetness that is not balanced enough by the noble hops. Finish is also too sweet. Some good classic Marzen flavors but too sweet for my preference.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass. Label says enjoy by 12/18/14.

Appearance: Pours a deep golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. About one finger of off white head which slowly settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A bready, toasty, and fairly sweet malt forward aroma with hints of caramel, biscuit, and subtle fruit. Toasted barley malt with upfront hints of biscuit, sweet caramel, toffee, grains, cracker, and yeast. Subtle fruit hints of apple and orange along with some sugar sweetness. Light hints of earthy hops. Also some hints of spice. A pretty solid malty aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma hints at, a toasty, bready, and sweet classic Marzen malt driven taste with notes of caramel, biscuit, and fruit. Upfront toasted barley malt with good notes of biscuit, caramel, toffee, toasted bread, yeast, grains, and cracker. Light fruit undertones of apple and orange. Sweet notes of sugar. Subtle spice presence with a slight note of cinnamon. Subtle earthy hop presence. A solid taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, crisp, and very smooth.

Overall: A pretty good take on a Marzen. Good bready malt flavors with a nice subtle presence of fruit and hops.

Draft at the brewery served in a heavy, dimpled Oktoberfest stein. The beer is a deep amber in color color with a nice, well retained head. Pretty much spot on for the style - rich aromas of biscuity malt with layers of autumn leaves, toasted grain, and a subtle fruity, caramel sweetness. Satisfyingly malty and flavorful but cleaning up very well to finish with a grassy noble hop flavor and snappy bitterness. I’m game for a full boot of this, anytime.
