Bottle from Good Beer Co., Glasgow (355ml, £2.40):
A light and clear looking, caramel brown to amber colour with a foamy, fingers width tall head that stays very well and looks quite still.
A nutty aroma with some good, earthy malts and a little bit of spice. There is some sweetness and a little bit of fruit in there too but the malts certainly dominate.
Malts dominating again along with a little bit of fruity sweetness, a good amount of caramel and some brown sugar. It was rounded off with some raisin and a little bitterness.
Mainly smooth with only a slight amount of grain and spice. The body is medium and the flavours are well balanced with a nice, bitter end to round things off with.
Probably the best Märzen I have tried, although it isn't my most frequently visited style. There was a great malt and caramel base with just the right amount of sweetness and bitterness at the end. A well balanced and very enjoyable beer.

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

3.13/5 rDev -14.2%
look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.25
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.
