Serving: 12 oz bottle poured into a Saint Arnold tulip pint glass.

Appearance: Clear, dark orange amber. Moderate frothy head and minimal lacing.

Smell: Lightly toasted grains, a bit of yeast and spice.

Taste: Toasty malt and relatively sweet (caramel, dried fruits?). A bit of hop spice and bitterness and hints of alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Medium, smooth body with moderate carbonation.

Overall: Drinkable with a nice malty body, but a bit too sweet as with some of Saint Arnold's other ale offerings.

12oz Brown bottle with twist-off cap featuring "Beer's looking at you" text and bottled on 07/29/2014. Poured into an imperial Pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear, deep amber with 1/2 finger of head

Smell: Caramel malts and a little esters from the yeast

Taste: Bready malt with an underlying noble hop bitterness with a sweet finish

Mouthfeel: Creamy with moderate carbonation

Overall: So as far as the Märzen style goes, this features an ale yeast so its a bit creamier than most Oktoberfest and less of a crisp finish. Besides that, this is still very tasty and enjoyable in the same price point at Sam Adams Oktoberfest. This has more of a cloying finish than most Oktoberfests, so in my opinion this is just begging to be paired with a nice hearty fall meal. Makes me want to smoke a brisket.
