Serving: 12 oz can poured into a Libbey Gibraltar 7 oz glass.

Appearance: Clear medium amber; thick, foamy, off white head; minimal lacing.

Smell: Lightly malty, sweet and grainy.

Taste: Full, malty body; toasted cereal, caramel and sweetish fruit (apple). Lightly herbal, hoppy, bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation.

Overall: Fuller, malty Märzen with layered malt flavors and some good hop balance.

12 oz bottle was poured into a mug.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Caramel, toffee, toasted, bready, doughy, and grassy.

Taste: Sweetness up front with everything else in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium to full bodied, low to medium carbonation, and a little chewy.

Overall: Pretty nice oktoberfest. A bit sweeter than most, but still nice. It is on the border of being a bock.
