12 oz. bottle poured in to a stoneware krug/stein

Appearance - Rich copper color. Light head.
Smell - Hints of biscuit, malty grain, a sweet smell.
Taste - Easy drinker, starts out bready with a very slight sweetnes at the end.
Mouthfeel - Creamy, pleasantly carbonated. Really nice mouthfeel to it.
Overall - Really liked this one due to the lightly sweet finish. A nice change from some of sweeter in this American version of the style.

Pours a copper amber with a medium off white head. Aroma and taste has a sweet toasted barley malt character, grass and grains with some bitter notes on the end. Palate is medium body with good carbonation and crisp mouth feel. Gets slightly sweeter and flavorful as it warms up, needs a bit more malt. Overall a good drinking brew but could be better.

Solid marzen. Wish they were still Virginia owned... but I can't hold that against this beer. Tastes like it should, according to style guides, though didn't blow me out of the water. Would buy again.

Feels kind of strange drinking an octoberfest beer on this warm, muggy night. Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a bronze color with amber hues and a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild a bit of malts. Taste is also very light, some toasted malts, not a lot of flavor here. Feels light in the mouth and overall, not a bad beer, but seems to be lacking and real flavor or punch.
