I find myself trying every Oktoberfest and pumpkin flavored beer I can get me hands on, this one was pretty good! I am a easy going critic as I enjoy just about every beer I've had so... saying that, I still feel there was something missing here. I wish I could place it with words but don't yet have the beer vocabulary to do so. Overall very drinkable though!

12oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

(A)- Pours a clear orange amber color. Some light froth and lacing.

(S)- A nice sweeter grain profile meets a lightly bitter yeasty breadiness.

(T)- Quite similar to the smell. A nice underlying sweetness that meets a lightly hopped/spiced bready yeast backbone.

(M)- A good carbonation level and balance. A touch sweeter than the norm for me, but in general, a good balance in the glass.

(O)- Definitely a solid Marzen. Again, a touch sweet for me, but still very enjoyable.
