look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: reddish brown with 1 finger of tan fizzy head that dissipates quickly. The carbonation looks great, streaming off of the bottom. There is little to no head left after 1 minute after pour.

S: mm that nice toasty, bready, roasty smell that lets me know fall is almost here. clean, no diacetyl or yeast is present

T: That nice freshly cooked toast flavor mixed with a slight biscuity flavor. a little bit of hallertau style hop flavor is present, along with a slight grainy flavor, almost like yuengling

M: Great feel, medium bodied, creamy, easy drinking, refreshing. carbonation is nice too

O: Just an overall good beer. I've had better octoberfest's though.

3.53/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 2 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: pours a clear copper with two fingers of beige head that almost completely vanishes with no lacing.

S: Munich and pilsner malt aromas up front with sweet biscuit, caramel, and citrus notes following.

T: Munich malt flavors here as well with bread, caramel, and slight citrus. The finish is clean and bready.

M: medium-light body with medium carbonation, this beer is light and dry, though could use a bit more carbonation.

O: a solid Marzen overall. I'd like a bit more carbonation and depth of flavor, but it's still tasty and clean.
