2.45/5  rDev -33.4%

A standard pour of Full Sail's LTD 007 Oktoberfest Lager yields a bright amber brew that glows when filled with sunlight. The beige head is moderate in size and falls at a moderate pace, leaving behind a thin ring of sticky foam. The bright body is accentuated by some festive streams of tiny bubbles, which rise to the top more quickly than expected.

The nose is understated. Scratch that, it's indistinct. At first, it just smells faintly of beer: hops, some malty aromas, and some yeasty deposits. A few swirls in the glass and some very intense sniffing tosses up some toasted-grain-like smells and a bit of metal.

This brew tastes better than it smells (but that's not saying much). Malts take a back seat to hoppy bitterness and some metallic tastes. These flavors aren't helped by the beer's watery mouthfeel.

I think that our friends at Full Sail were trying to produce a crisp, slightly bitter American-style lager with a Märzen malt profile here. The concept is interesting, and I don't object on principle to a hoppy Märzen, but in the end I'm just not sure what makes this beer stand out from the dozens of amber lagers I've had over the years. Oh, wait! Yes I do! Ltd. 007 doesn't taste as good as most of them do.

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.

Rich clear brassy hue, decent suds. Malty nose, toasted bread, grassy, herbal hop, clean and grainy. Moderate sized body, very smooth, full malt jacket, toasted grain, hay, peppery hop, modest bitterness, bread, faintly herbal, mild alcoholic warmth, clean drying finish.

Love the maltiness here, very well put together with some layers within. Brewed right to style and drinkable to say the least. Yet another very good lager creation from Full Sail.

Picked up at the COOP tonight... Pours a very clear amber... Nice head but little lacing.. no real complaints.

Nose is all about the malts... I would guess a hint of dark Munich... nice toasty presence.. very clean.

Malty through and through without ever being "sweet".... minor spicy hoppiness, but it is in the background as expected.

Well done... I really like this one... The LTD series has been tickling my lager itch for a while and this is fresh and pretty wonderful.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a reddish coppery amber with a half finger white head that dissipated to a thin film and ring around the glass. Aroma of bready, slightly biscuit malt, light nuts, light grassy hops. Flavor follows, with semi-sweet bready, biscuit malt, light toasted malt and grassy hops. Finish is drier with toasty biscuit malt and grassy hops. Medium bodied. Hits the main marzen characteristics, nothing out of the ordinary, but a pleasant seasonal lager.

3.65/5  rDev -0.8%

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass.

A - Clear orange amber with half a finger of off white head

S - Lots of sweet malt, caramel, and toasted bread

T - A malt forward brew: caramel, toasted bread, and somewhat herbal hops. Not very complex but I like the sweetness

M - Thin-to-moderate body with low-to-moderate carbonation. Slightly sticky

O - A good beer for the style. I like the sweet malt profile in this, though it's not very complex. It's definitely easy drinking though

3.54/5  rDev -3.8%

Appearance: Deep clear mahogany in color, with a large dense off-white head, which retains quite well, and thick, fine-beaded glass-coating lace.

Aroma: Opens with an abundance of toasted malt and dark bread. There are grassy hops as well, but the malt dominates.

Taste: Opens with a strong wave of toasted malt and dark bread. As the taste progresses, some mildly bitter herbal hops appear, and the malt assumes a more dominant character. Finishes with a mild grassy hope flavor.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, and full, and very pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: A very nice, well-made example.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce brown glass long neck bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Sourcing: Purchased at Central Market in Texas in October of 2013 for $7.99/six-pack plus tax.

12 oz bottle,one from a sixer from Fred Meyer in Salem. $7.49 (6). Clear handsome copper beer with a nice sized thick and frothy creme coloured head. Good full malty aroma,per style,caramel,hay a little nutty. Good. Malty yet somehow balanced taste..sweet with overlaying bitterness..semi dry finish.. Only thing it tastes more alcoholic than it says it is! Palate is fine..good enough for style. Good beer but not the greatest Okto

New LTD recipe from Full Sail, this one is an Oktoberfest released at the end of August and will run until late October. LTD 07 is simply called Oktoberfest Lager.

A) Pours a clear rusty brown with a small head that quickly fades and leaves a bit of lacing

S) Dark, nutty malt comes through with a mild spicy & earthy hop aroma; slightly sour

T) The malt dominates the flavor, it is a dark roasted, nutty malt with a hint of carmel. The hops add a bit of spice in the middle, but the brew finishes with a sweet malt finish

M) Good carbonation, nice thickness, this beer just feels right in my mouth

O) This is a lot darker and maltier then most Oktoberfest style lagers. It is good and I like it quite a bit; a nice, unique Oktoberfest

12oz bottle (best by 12/25/2013) into a tulip. Pours a clear amber w/ a 1-finger head that settles to a narrow band.

Aroma is bready, fruity caramel malt and floral hops. A little muted.

Taste follows nose. Sweet caramel and pale biscuity malt and floral, spicy old world hops. Nice balance but a little bland.

Mouthfeel is just shy of medium-bodied with a crisp, refreshing finish.

Overall a decent attempt at a traditional Märzen but not one I'd seek out again.

One of our favorite times of the year is when these malt-driven lagers begin to hit store shelves! Full Sail Brewing Company introduced their märzen in their ever-evolving LTD Series. The beer pours a crystal clear, mahogany color with a moderate amount of off-white head capping the brew. Rich, grainy caramel notes and a touch of toasted bread lead the nose to believe the brew will be on the slightly sweet side. Toasted malt flavors open this malt-driven style. Hints of bread and caramel pull through to the light, grassy hop finish. Medium-full in body, this Oktoberfest is a good representation of the style.

Solid copper body; plenty of carbonation with a one-finger thick, white head. Rich, grainy scent with a touch of brown sugar; some faint roasted nuts in there. Warm, sugary feel; medium-light body; crisp, clean; mostly dry finish. Good, dark grain flavors with a sharp yet complementary hop bitterness.

Rich and flavorful without overdoing or overpowering things.

3.35/5  rDev -9%

A-It pours a crystal clear copper color, with a medium to small white head that quickly fades to a collar around the top of the beer with very little lacing.
S-The aroma is mild with a slightly sweet toasty grain aroma. There is caramel notes and faint noble hops.
T-The flavor is much of the same as the aroma. Mild and easy going with a toasty grain flavor. The beer is not "sweet" but it's malty. There is fairly decent amount of spicyness and earthyness from the noble hops. The bitterness is mild and balance by the maltiness almost perfectly.
M-This beer is extremely drinkable. Medium body with a crisp semi dry finish. The dryness lingers with spicy hop notes in the long lasting finish.
O-Overall I think this is a decent interpretation of the style. A well done offerimg from Gull sail.
