3.55/5 rDev -5.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 16 oz. undated bottle: clear, deep golden to copper with a nice, creamy off-white head.
Very typical, rather average aroma for an oktoberfest: solidly malty and perfumy with just a hint of noble hops.
Flavor begins with the standard malty, sweet flavor with hints of molasses. A very faint fruity flavor is evident in the aftertaste. Despite the emphasis on malt, the lager never becomes cloying.
Perhaps the best characteristic: rather thick bodied on the palate with a very pleasing, creamy mouthfeel.
Overall, this was enjoyable, but it did not really stand out from all the oktoberfests this season.

This was poured from tap into a pint glass. Pours dark orange color with a nice and foamy head.
There is very nice balance to the aromas of grains, amber notes, crackers and some bits of navel oranges as well.
medium bodied with a good smooth feel though it is slightly lacking on the mid. Balanced with straightforward flavors of grains, amber notes and some navel oranges.
I enjoyed this. A quality marzen that hit the spots I was looking for.
Serving type: on-tap

A- Pours a copper color that isn't quite as clear as I'd expect. A fairly thin white head, has solid retention and leaves some nice spotty lacing.
S- Quite a bit of bready and sweet malts in the nose. A bit of biscuit and caramel here too.
T- Follows the nose really well. The malts are up and front and never let down. A bit of a floral hop toward the end. Crisp and well balanced.
M- Medium in body and carbonation.
O- Very easy to drink and a great example of the style.
