A - Amber orange with a crisp white bubbly head that leaves nice spotty lace after each drink.

S - Caramel, toasted malts, grains.

T - Layers of caramel, malts, toffee, brown sugar. Smooth and creamy mouth feel.

O - Solid and classic Oktoberfest. I would def get this again.

A typical German expression of the style. Been drinking Marzens for a while.

Poured clean with orange tones, very clear, steady lacing. 5

Nice froth and head that dissipates slowly as you sip. 4.5

Bouquet of sweet,slightly sour bread, grassy and floral notes, and semi-sweet dulce de leche dominate. 4

Enough medium body with low to mid intensity in the palate. Finish is dry with faint spice. 3.7

Carbonation on the money, i.e. not overdone, not to shy either. 4

Close to zero evidence of alcohol. 4

Heart-warming fall brew that delivers for its more than modest $ 2.49 price tag. 4

One will be hard-pressed to find a traditional old-world brew of this quality at this price. 4

Will definitely enjoy again with some good liverwurst, home-made sauerkraut and German mustard.

A winner in every way, though American counterparts are doing a superb job in the style as well.

Highly recommended for anyone wanted to be introduced to this more than worthy style.
