3.95/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 5

Appearance- very dark brown with light bubbles to be seen streaming up the glass, white head starts thick but fades and remains thin white lacing,

Smell- slight malt, musty, and grain and husk

Taste- starts up malty up front and has some nice hops and dryness on the back end keeps things in check, very well balanced overall in the flavor, not as sweet as some octoberfests and not thats not necessarily bad thing

Mouthfeel- low carbonation, medium bodied, smooth, not as heavy as some octobers

Drinkability- this is very easily drinkable for sure, im not sure its the best of the best of the style but its probably one of the most drinkable for sure, the flavor is enjoyable and balance to the extreme, one i could certainly session all night long where some marzens can get to be bit to much so in terms drinkability this is probably my favorite
