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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.
