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.

Clear, coppery orange with a foamy, off white head.

Strong caramel notes in both aroma and taste, becomes a bit much at times. Grassy, lightly herbal hops.

Medium body, foamy mild carbonation.

Not bad, but the caramel sweetness was a bit much for my personal taste and would prevent me from trying it again.

Pours an effervescent copper with 3+ fingers of cream colored head. Nice head retention & lacing

S: Pears, faint graininess,

T: Pears & sweet graniness up front, a little bit of herbal hops. Some astringency, pears, apricot & brown bread as this warms. Finishes sweet & grainy

Alright, but not one I would reccomend

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.

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

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

an underwhelming beer. crystal clear copper color with an inch of big bubbled khaki head that disappears as quickly as it arises. smells like watery german malt, caramel sweetener, and a lager yeast that is the bad kind of funky. the flavor is really light, subdued almost minimal. the malt is simple and sweet, maybe not totally fermented out, and there isn't a whole lot else going on. some balancing hops on the back end, a little floral maybe, and the caramel sweetness prevails. just a lackluster flavor here. carbonated pretty well, with big soda bubbles. less than medium body is bigger than the flavor needs, its sort of a weird contradiction. overall definitely not full sails best work, and not something I would revisit again given the flood of good Oktoberfest brews on the shelves this time of year.

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.

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.
