Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Pours light copper - see through - with foamy white head. Light malty smell. Light malty flavor, hop swirled in. Modestly sweet. Touch of spiciness on the tongue. Real easy drinker with loads of malty goodness. Good O'fest celebrator. Clean.

This beer poured out as a nice looking orange amber color. The head on the beer was very nice, it settles but as a good retention. The smell of the beer is earthy with a pleasent malt aroma. The taste has a very nice caramel malt flavor with a slightly bitter grassy finish. The mouthfeel is smooth, nicely carbonated and medium bodied. Overall I found this to be really good, came close to some of the Oktoberfest beers that I tend to enjoy the most.

!2 oz. bottle poured into a Millstream pint glass.

Appearance: Clear amber with a small white cap.

Smell: Sweet malt and earthy German hops.

Taste: Rich, clean caramel malt with slight apple finish and subtle hops.

Mouthfeel is light/medium and light/medium carbonation. Clean and crisp on the palate.

This is a very sessoinable Octoberfest beer that is gone too fast. One of my favorite fall beers.

Serving type: 12-ounce bottle. A batch code is printed on the shoulder but there is no easily discernable freshness date.

Appearance: Straight pour into a pint glass. The color is medium amber with a Halloween-esque tint of pumpkin orange. Two fingers of thick, eggshell-colored head dissipated fairly slowly to leave a spotted lacing.

Smell: The aromas are pretty muted at first but emerge slowly. Lightly toasted malts, sweet caramel, toffee, butterscotch, maple syrup, and grassy hops. Honestly, it smells more British than German.

Taste: Lightly toasted malts, caramel, toffee, earthy hops, a hint of butterscotch, and maple syrup. A light bitterness lingers on the tongue after each sip; at time I thought it was metallic.

Drinkability: I was a little disappointed initially but the beer turned into something special. It is a very solid beer and one of the best märzens I have tried.
