2.58/5  rDev -28.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured into Boulevard tumbler.

Appearance-Brownish red body with about a half finger off white head. No lacing, No retention. Kinda dull looking.

Smell-Lots of malt. Some light floral notes and

Taste-Nothing about this beer screams Marzen/Octoberfest/Fall beer. Some sweet malts upfront with some breadiness and a light hop finish. Just a traditional lager to me.

Mouthfeel-Light bodied, medium carbonation

Overall-Sisyphus, Pheonixxx, Devils Backbone...Love their seasonals. This one though I'm not sure waht they were thinking. Nothing about but this beer screams octoberfest. (584 characters)

Tried on tap at the Rockwall Flying Saucer. Pours orangish amber, about like you would expect an Oktoberfest to look. Smell is malty with a little sweetness. Taste is similar. Not the best Oktoberfest out there, but a good representation of the style that will not disappoint you. (280 characters)

Poured from 12oz bottle. Many thanks to AttitudeBrew for this bottle.

A- Pours a hazy amberish color with light orange hues to it. One finger white foam shows light retention. Spotty lacing on the sides of the glass.

S- Bready caramel malts in the front of the aroma. There is some light toasted malts as well with a hint of little nuts and hops.

T- Bready malts in the front of the beer showcase a caramel malt that becomes the backbone throughout the entire beer. A toasted middle to the beer brings in a light off buttery tone as well. Mild spiced hops in the ending gives way to a corn like grainy final flavor.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is medium and light for the style I think. Caramel malts with some light toasted flavor to it are left on the palate. Aftertaste is mostly grainy flavor, light alcohol, and toasted malts. Flavors were well put together for the style although the overall flavor could have popped more. Light buttery undertone in the middle is the only off flavor in the beer. Light alcohol drying on the palate.

D- This beer is drinkable but average at best. I personally enjoyed the ABV being as low as it was. Alcohol never really became overpowering. Flavors could have been a little more but average and doesn't leave you wanting more. (1,278 characters)

Pours out a deep amber. Smells toasty, grainy, and cardboard-y. That toast and graininess is way up front in the taste. I get some of the classic Marzen flavors underneath that: some breadiness and caramel sweetness, but the initial characteristics take over. Mouthfeel is kind of slick and the carbonation is too sharp. This isn't particularly good; not at all, really. (370 characters)
