look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: 4.5 - Lovely pour, reddish amber color, clear, with a substantial, dense head of foam atop it.
S: 4.0 - Good malt profile, nutty, a little toasty. Solid on-style.
T: 4.0 - On the bitter end of the style, but not so much hops as to disguise the key component of the flavor: the malt, which is rich and bready. Very tasty.
M: 4.0 - Good body and mouthfeel, but not heavy.
O: 4.25 - Really good Oktoberfest, one of the best I've had in recent years.

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.

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.

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.

Clear orange with a small off white head and small dots and fingers of lace. Smell is malty bread crusts a bit of yeast funk and some herbal hops.
Taste is similar to the smell. Malty but not overly sweet. Six pack recipe says: malts- 2 row pale, munich, caramel. Hops- Czech saaz, Yakima Glacier. And 26 IBU.
Would not have guessed the 26 IBUs so the malt bill must have supressed the hops. Tastes like about 15-18 IBUs. Medium body good carbonation and refreshing. There is a long light bitterness in the finish. Overall I will probably buy this again most likely next year.

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.

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

3.67/5  rDev 0%

12 oz bottle pours a clear amber color with a modest cap of off-white head. Not much for retention and lace.

Nose is sweet malt and caramel, little bit of toffee. It has a lighter malt aroma and a touch more hops than many American marzens. More grainy/honey than the darker burnt caramel of Sam Adams for example.

Taste is grainy and toasty with a refreshing burst of grassy hop bitterness on the end. This one falls somewhere in between a lighter festbier and the heavily malted Americanized marzens. I like it...not overly sweet and strikes a good balance. Sulfurous lager yeast is apparent as well. Im on the fence as to whether I would go back for a repeat purchase...I think I would, especially if I dont get around to it until next September.

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.

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
