3.33/5  rDev -15.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a long neck brown 12 oz. bottle into a standard clear pint glass.

Appearance: Clear light amber color with barely one finger of off-white foam. Foam faded quick and left no lacing behind and no cap.

Smell: Sweet corn and bread-like malt. Little to no hops present. A bit sweeter and perfume-like than a typical Marzen Oktoberfest style.

Taste: Watered down sweet malt and some corn flavor. A lot sweeter and thinner than most good Oktoberfest beers, and not malty enough. Could also stand a little more earthy hops presence to balance all that thin sweetness out.

Mouth feel: Light body with typical carbonation. Pretty typical.

Overall: I like a lot of the beers from New Glarus, but this isn't one of my favorites. Way too sweet for a Marzen Oktoberfest style and way too thin and watery. There are too many good Oktoberfest beers out there to have any reason to seek this one out again.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Prost!

Pours a clear copper, nice bubbles from the bottom, Finger of off white head, good looking lager

Smell is grain, cereal, bread, caramel, herbal hop, biscuit. toffee, but most of all a big bready grainy malt, smells like a good marzen!

Taste is bready/grainy malt, herbal hop is there but very minimal, caramel, kind of a crisp flavor, biscuit, toffee.

Mouthfeel is medium light, medium high carbonation, wet finish but crisp

Best Oktoberfest goin IMO... Blessed to live in WI, also blessed that New Glarus beers hold up a lot better then most with a few months on um! Prost my friends!
