A: Clear filtered orange colour with lots of bubbles. Huge 6 finger orange cream coloured head with large and small bubbles.
S: Apple juice, lager yeasts, this style is the gamey scent and taste of lagers, a stronger more rustic scent than your average German lager. This version captures that.
T: Light sweetness with the same gamey strong lager taste combined with lager yeasts, dough like bready quality, fusel like as well. A great job.
M: Medium thick bready body, little carbonation. Slightly syrupy.
O: An excellent version of this brew. Got it in Kalamazoo at Tiffany’s, drinking it in Port Huron.

Poured bottle into glass. 5.3%abv
Appearance- A lively, vibrant burnt orange, ironically the same hue as the Fall foliage. A thick two finger head with good retention and carbonation.
Smell- Smells of a fresh bready malt with sweet caramel notes in the background. A bit of peppery spice as well.
Taste- Sweet malty flavor with caramel and a bit of sugar prominent. Some dryness in the back end with a touch of corn as well which tells you this is still a lager if you weren't already aware octoberfest are. Finishes smooth with the ever so slightest detection of hops.
Mouthfeel- Nice carbonation. The beer is thin but has enough taste that it is not watery. Easy drinking.
Overall- A fine example of the style that highlights the Fall Season. Full of flavor with an outstanding malt flavor. Great Marzen.
