A nice looking marzen, deep orange and perfectly clear, with a good light orange head.

Aroma and flavor are complete malt bombs, perfect for an octoberfest beer. Tastes like they went heavy on the Munich malt, perhaps my favorite of all malts. Hops provide bitterness to balance and a bit of crispness, but aren't the stand-out for this one, only a balancer.

Easy drinking body and clean lager crispness make this a very tasty october treat. As usual, I am not disappointed in any way when I pick up RABC beers.

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.

The Real Ale Oktoberfest poured a deep amber with plenty of malt on the nose which is in keeping with the style. The taste had a loads of caramel malt with a slight nuttiness and a little bitterness on the end to keep it from being overly sweet. The Real Ale Oktoberfest is an exceptional local take on the style and I found it highly drinkable and refreshing. This brew from Real Ale really hit the spot.
