Picked up a 4 pack of pounders of this bad boy at TW for a song probably because its past Oktober. Well that doesn't matter let's try Oktoberfest in March, as March is appropriate for a Marzen style, and give this brew a whirl. Popping the top I get a deep malty, like the center of malted milk ball, waft. Pours to a slightly cloudy deep yellow with a creamy head that recedes to a quarter inch. On the taste this brew has a very good malty backbone, nice biscuit flavors, not overly sweet for being mostly on the malty side. Mouthfeel is rich and smooth. Taste is consistent throughout with only a slight bitterness in the aftertaste. A great brew for the style, a sessioner without a doubt.

A: Pours a nice amber-brown, with a good light head. Left a fair amount of lacing down the glass.

S: Floral notes. The last thing I personally want out of a marzen. Beneath those, toast and yeast, which I would expect.

T: Floral notes confirmed - there's definitely some amount of resiny-flowery hops in this alleged marzen. The bready malt one expects as the base for this style is present, but for me, buried beneath the perfume.

M: Creamy, smooth, and full - Hinterland nailed the mouthfeel for this one.

O: I was disappointed to find an appreciable amount of hopping done to a marzen, hence the lower score. I will not repeat this one.

Poured into a Sam Adams glass.

A - Pours a clear dark golden with a finger of white puffy head.

S - Smooth toasted malts, light hops, some yeast in there as well.

T - Nice flavor of toasted malts, light hops. Mid palate getting light toffee and carmel flavors. On the aftertaste more hops and malts.

M - Medium mouthfeel, with medium carbonation.

O - A really good oktoberfest! Cheers!

Hinterlands Oktoberfest pours a nice clear amber with a thick robust off white head and some
great lacing. The nose is pretty straight forward. Toasted malts, caramel, and light herbal
notes from the hops. Flavor profile is pretty standard, which is NOT a bad thing. Good malt
background with toasted caramel malts and a bitter hop finish. More hops than a standard
Oktoberfest, but not too far out of the ball park to question what it is if you were handed it
blind. Good carbonation gives it a lively mouthfeel that is very nice and highly quaffable.
A solid offering.

A very solid Octoberfest, locally brewed. Nice color. Better at cellar temp. Just wished it had a little more malt finish.
