4.5/5 rDev +23.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.
Appearance: Lively and slightly cloudy amber orange with lots of rising bubbles. Huge off white head that gives a good six fingers and good retention. Lots of sticky lacing.
Smell: Strong aroma of bready caramel and toasty malts. Some wheat grains and hints of toffee. Light hints of citrus fruit. Solid presence of mildly spicy grassy hops. Very bready and sweet aroma.
Taste: Sweet and bready caramel malts up front with some toffee and grains. In the middle there is a fairly strong taste of roasted nuts and orange and cherry fruit. Hints of spicy hops in the finish. Very roasty and fairly complex.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Chewy, creamy, and very smooth.
Overall: A very interesting and tasty take on a Marzen. More roasted and fruity than a typical Oktoberfest. Sort of like a cross between a Marzen and brown ale.

Review from notes
Auburn colored, nice lacing. Mildly nutty with a good dose of malts. Slight touch of metallic. Flavor is malt forward with delicate hop finish. Mild bitterness. Smooth carbonation, crisp. Pretty good overall. Not something I want to seek out but if it's there I'll drink it.
Serving type: on-tap

Appearance: 1" cream colored head fades fairly quickly leaving faint soapy looking lacing. Amber color and somewhat cloudy with moderate carbonation
Aroma: toasted bread, caramel, a bit of hop spice
Mouthfeel: mostly light but not as light as a pale lager, just slightly sticky, somewhat dry finish Flavor: toasted bread, caramel malts, a definite hop bite in the middle and finish.
Overall: very good, but not the best Oktoberfest.
