A: Bright copper orange with nice two finger head that fades to a nice thin layer on the surface.

S: Malt, yeast, bread, and some sweet subtle hints of caramel.

T: Nice malt up front and some sweet carmel notes. Finished with the classic octoberfest taste.

M: Nice carbonation and leaves a bit of a sweet taste.

O: Thought is was a good ocktoberfest. Great seasonal beer and would like to try it again.

A- A medium clear copper/amber. A very fluffy cream color head. Very good lacing and carbonation.
S-Very strong toasted malts, caramel & spices.
T-Delicious toasted malts and caramel & a slight sweetness(as a Belgian Wit fan, its hard for me to call this beer "sweet"), however,it is there, to a small degree. There is also a very slight "hoppy" aftertaste.
M-light & delicious, with malt favoring that lingers.
D-I would definitely drink this beer again & would highly reccomend it.I agree with a review that I read on the 2nd page of this beer's reviews(by Hustlesworth)This beer was very flavorful chilled but became more complex as it warmed.
I usually throw beers, that are new to me, in the freezer for 10 minutes. They just get very cold & i can drink them slower that way. Its amazing to experience the changes in their flavor, as they progress from very cold to room temperature!!!

This is my very first review, here or anyway else. I probably should've started with a HefeWeizen or a Wit,too late!!!
I love to read reviews by you guys, like the 1 I mentioned above, guess I will just have to enjoy the journey of discovery in this incredible world of microbrews!I am confident i will be able to write far better reviews as I go forward!
I love the Hefe-Weizens & Wits! I am going to explore the stouts & ales next, not a fan of the IPAs, AT ALL! Enjoyed the Ayinger(whick i give an A-) & (The Sam Adams which i give a B-)Oktoberfests.
Cheers, Todd

Nice golden color lager. Big white foam forms and lasts forever, towering above the liquid. Rich and creamy lacing also.

Smell is fresh and sweet with a grassy, floral aroma.

Malt is smooth and rich with a big biscuit flavor. Sweet flavor as a whole with honey character. Hops make their way in and balance perfectly with a grassy bitterness. Simple yet sophisticated.

Light to medium bodied and smooth throughout. Good carbonation. Finish is wet, slick and clean while maintaining good flavor.

This is an awesome Marzen beer. I could drink this all day. Incredible depth for a such a drinkable beer. Extremely well crafted.
