Consumed 03/03/08, re-reviewed 09/29/10.

Pours a crystal-clear medium amber. A one finger head quickly dissipates to a nice foam skin. Plenty of small active bubbles.

Aroma is faint sweet grain with a lurking metallic undertone.

Biscuity/caramel malt flavor, some fresh baked bread with a slightly bitter, subtle fresh hop finish. Balanced and somewhat light.

Beer is well-carbonated and provides a nice tingle on the tongue. Slightly dry at the finish.

Not my favorite marzen, but quite serviceable.

If you can't find any other Octoberfest beers this one isnt bad. Aroma and Appearance are nice are right but the it lacked a little in subtle taste of it's German counterparts. It is a true to from Octoberfest brew in mouth feel.
