Best by Feb 2015. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a transparent copper with a small off-white head that fades quickly and leaves okay retention and lacing. The aromas are solid. Very malty. Lots of caramel and toffee. Fresh bread. Some grains. The flavors aren't bad, but seem to be the weak link, in my opinion. More caramel, toffee, and butterscotch. There's a subtle toastiness going on. More bread and grains. It's standard for the style, but finishes weak. Mouthfeel is nice. It's light with very active carbonation. It's fluffy and smooth. Easy to drink.

This is your average Oktoberfest. It's not bad, but doesn't standout against other examples of the style. It's a nice beer to eat some meat and potatoes with... or maybe some sausage.

(2014) Oh, this was a great one... possibly my favourite Marzen of all time. It's very roasty-malty, and I fell in love with the colour on the pour, much less the taste that hit my palate.

Best American Okie I've ever had.

Decided to review this beer because of something interesting I noticed about it. This beer tastes significantly better to me drank out of the bottle rather than a glass. Out of a glass this beer is very average, but out of the bottle it is much more flavorful and more of what I expect of an oktoberfest style.

Odd that it really is only this beer as I prefer other oktoberfest style beers in glasses.

Purchased a single bottle- best before jan 2015

Appearance-orangish, more on the amber side. Crystal clear with zero head off the pour and no lacing

Smell- very neutral in the pint glass that it was poured in- the smell from the bottle is malty

Taste- solid marzen syle, I get a good dose of Munich malt, a little residual sweetness, very pleasant

Mouthfeel- a bit over carbonated, almost like a ginger ale carbonation, very fizzy and makes the beer feel a little thin, after it breathes for a while it gets a little better

Overall- I loooooooooove marzens's, octoberfests, Vienna lagers etc, this was not my favorite octoberfest, I give it a solid "B" for effort, it was worth trying but I wouldn't seek it out.

-prosit, BMFR
