3.53/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: clear dark amber color with a short off-white head that disappears quickly.

S: nothing stands out too strongly but definitely caramel and malt with orange and raisin aromas tucked away.

T: definitely malty with a caramel or brown sugary kind of sweetness.

M: Nice bit o carbonation and a very nice consistency (not too watery or oily).

O: Overall, it's not my favorite of beers but I think that's just a matter of personal preference. Its a bit too malty for me but if you're into the style, I'd say give it a go.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A- A clear amber color with a two finger with head.

S- Toasted malts, caramel malts, some raisins, not in your face but very nice.

T- Malty with some citrus hops, getting toasted and caramel malts, again getting some raisins, pretty tasty.

M- Smooth, light to medium body.

O- A really nice beer and the first Oktoberfest I have had in a very long time, makes me want to seek out more Oktoberfests next year.

3.51/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a beautiful amber colour with a respectable white head that has decent retention, albeit with limited resultant lacing. Grainy aroma has more caramel than I'd typically associate with traditional German versions of the style, but that's a modification I personally enjoy. Mild flavours are well balanced and again, not stereotypical for a marzen - lots of bread and grains, with some light toffee notes. Nothing that leaps out as "spectacular", but an easy drinking beer.
