Copper/orange in color, this Oktoberfest offers a small head of foam with tightly packed bubbles. The nose on this beer emphasizes bready malts and caramel and is not very pronounced.

With the taste, this beer offers some of the usual marzen flavors common to the style. The taste of bready malts, toast, light spice, and caramel are evident from beginning to end. There is a slightly roasty taste and the body of the beer is light to medium, leaning toward the sweet side.

I don’t know why I am drinking an Oktoberfest in March, but I had been saving this beer for a while and thought it might hit the spot right now. It is a good example of the marzen style- a style I am not usually too thrilled about and do not rank very highly on my list. But style biases aside, this is a good beer overall. The taste is better than the mellow nose leads you to believe and it does have enough going for it to earn a recommendation.

Light brown colored beer with just a faint bit of white foam covering part of the top. Good clarity. Aroma of caramel and dark malt greets my nose. The mouth is a bit sticky and chewy. The flavor is of caramel, dark malt, and there's a nuttiness in the taste, particularly in the fade.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Amber headed towards copper under a short head that settles to a partial film, no lace. Nice colour, but mostly a plain looking beer.

Nose is subdued, some caramel sweetness and just a hint of alcohol. Nothing too special.

Sweet from malt, a wee bit of grain. Slightly prickly from carbonation, but a generally thin mouthfeel.

Very ordinary.
