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

Deep amber gold. Looks like a field of grain wavering in the wind with a dingy white head.

Sweet yeastiness on the nose. Bready.

Very smooth taste, bits of coriander, but you definitely get that Oktoberfest feel, little bit of hops.

Very rounded taste, quite easy to drink.

A very cool German Marzen. Quite worth the try.

3.28/5  rDev -17.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

eyes...
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

nose...
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

taste etc...
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

verdict?
ok, nothing special, well crafted but decidedly mild
