12 oz 2013 bottle served in an SA lager glass.
Pours an orange-amber color with a high amount of visible carbonation and a very good head..

The aroma is rather fruity for style, with hints of peach and citrus in addition to the solid malt base. The hops are not so fruity in tasting but do result in a good, bitter-sweet balance.
Medium-light body with well-chosen medium-high carbonation.

O: a solid, slightly Americanized Octoberfest.

Poured into pint glass, color is transparent amber, head color is off white and dissipates quickly to a ring; nice marzen color and clean head and carbonation.

Smell is nice and malty, seems to be mostly vienna or munich, hops are grassy and seem fresh.

Taste is nicely malty, not caramely, good vienna/munich flavors (hints of grape or light fruitiness comes through from these malts). Hops are clean, fresh, light grassiness.

Mouthfeel is a little crisp, lightly strong on the tongue, but good carbonation and balance for a marzen style.

Overall, a solid, good tasting oktoberfestbier. Very good malt flavors and not too sweet, good hosp and nice mouthfeel. Would like to have a steinfull.
