Pretty good. More German-minded than many American Octo-fests, no surprise from Mr. Oliver.

Smooth, medium bodied. Some malt character, but not overwhelming. The floral hops and crisp finish make it nice and sessionable.

Solidly above average, and one of the better American o-fests

A- pours an amber brown perfect for an oktoberfest with a 2 finger head that dissipates quick.
S- Carmel, toasted malts, nutty, again great aroma for an oktoberfest
T- toasted malts, nutmeggy, nutty,
M- very light but good carbonation, easy to drink.
O- very well done for an oktoberfest, nothing special but a great sample of the style.

picked up locally. surprised that these guys are available already, but then again halloween costumes are starting to show up. enjoyed from my brooklyn snifter.

a - brew poured a transparent brown with a thin foamy white head that left some chunky lacing. some visible carbonation could be seen dancing in the glass.

s - ah...fresh marzen. nutmeg, figs, earthiness. toasted malts. breadiness.

t - a blend of toasted malts with some sweet figgy-ness glazed on the surface. malt heavy with some nutmeg grapes. i like a bit more sweetness on this style, but pretty solid none-the-less.

m - solid even carbonation, soft sweetness, but good for the style. easy drinker.

o - overall, pretty good marzen. i like them a bit sweeter, but this is a solid offering from brooklyn. this style doesn't get the love that it should.
