I have said over and over I am not a huge fan of the style, yet I have bought a few to compare this season to make sure I am not overly critical. I guess my palate has been wrecked from drinking so many IPA's and DIPA's this summer. Nevertheless, this one is pretty damn good for a cool early fall evening. Price isn't bad considering its a half liter.

Color: Typical Marzen. Maybe a bit lighter than some American offerings.

Aroma: Malts, caramel, sweetness, virtually no hop aroma. Actually, to me I get none.

Taste: This one is a stand out to me. I assume this one was fairly fresh because they guy said it had just come in. It tasted fresh. Crisper than the other Oktoberfest beers I have recently tried. Which I like about this one. Still a bit too malty for my personal preference. This is a beer you could session the hell out of though. They really don't have a lot of flavor other than caramel and some sweetness, but not overly cloying with this one, which I think some American styles do border on.

Overall: One of the better representations of the style. I guess for good reason its an actual German Marzen.
