12 ounce bottle. This beer pours out a clear, copper color with a small head. Toasted malt aroma with some spicy hops. The flavor is malty, with some lemon, which is strange. Just a bit of hop flavor in the finish, but the emphasis is towards the malt. Mouthfeel is light to medium. Good drinkability. Alcohol is well hidden. I didn't detect anything close to the 7.7% abv listed on the bottle. A well above average Oktoberfest.

Pours a light copper, a little light for a marzen. Head is there and gone, not much to speak of.

Aroma is malt and sweet honey or molasses. Light aroma isn't very pronounced.

Taste is honey and sweet sugar beets. The grain is there and a little light on the malting for the style. Sweet bread and light raisin. I like the flavor on this beer, I just would hesitate to call it true to style. The malting of the grain is a little light and there could be more roasting of the malt

Mouthfeel is good and medium bodied.

I like the flavor of this beer, but the roast of the malt is a little light for a marzen.
