look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
11.2oz green bottle served in a pilsner glass. Batch/date stamp L165L 09:56
Appearance: Clear golden yellow. 1/8" persistent white head. Some lacing hear and there, mostly small islands.
Smell: Malt, German noble hops.
Taste: Simple malt, a hint of honey and apple, nice solid hop bitter finish which is crisp at the end. Spicy noble hop flavors.
Mouthfeel: Good and lively carbonation, nice thickness underneath.
Overall / Drinkability: A simple beer, but very solidly put together such that all the simplicity equals one very drinkable beer. I had this at the Dayton German Fest earlier this year and again now, and in both cases I could easily knock back another, and I would not mind doing so. Not a rich in flavor Marzen, nor is it my favorite as I think the malt is a bit on the weak side - but - it works as a good beer. If I cannot get some of my other favorites, I think I'll look to this one as my backup for large amounts with pork and other typical German Oktoberfest favorites.
