I had been searching this out, and found it at a local bottle shop today in pint bottles, score!
A- A very clear light amber. Fluffy white head that dissipates fairly quickly, as most lagers do.
S- Sweet Caramel and Toasted bready malt. More so than most Marzen's. Oh my...I think I'm going to like this.
T- This is the Oktoberfest that all others aspire to be. It just has more of that delicious toasted bready malt flavor, with just a delicious caramel malt sweetness that you wish most Marzen's had more of. Absolutely delicious.
M- Smooth. Exactly as the style should be. Proper carbonation.
D- This was the perfect stogie companion this evening. Truly my gold standard in Oktoberfest/Marzen style beers.
Did I mention that this stuff is good?

this pops out of the bottle like a 16 year old popping a broad for the first time, golden brown with an amber hue, the head fades quickly, lots of carbonation keeps what little head there is alive, lacing is spotty, the brew is pretty clear, an average looking brew
strong brown honey musty note, herbal hops with some biscuit notes on the end, distant lemon notes enter the fray, mostly you get the malt as the dominate player here, bad
much like the nose this is sweet malt forward, pretty hefty weight wise, the carbonation is prickly (I would actually like a smidge more bite here), the hops have a slight bittering but mostly herbal almost slightly medicinal flavor to them, nothing great, nothing offensive
ok, nothing special, well crafted but decidedly mild
