On-tap @ Pilsener Haus in Hoboken, NJ.

Served in a traditional 1-Liter mug. Reddish-brown in color with a creamy, light brown head. Subtle aroma of caramel malts and floral hops. Soft carbonation and a slightly sweet finish. Full bodied for an Oktoberfest beer. I really enjoyed this and would consider it just as good of an option as Hacker-Pschorr, Ayinger, Paulaner, etc. Paired excellently with some grilled brats and sauerkraut.

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

On-tap poured into a nonic pint glass.

Appearance
Deep amber with a short head that dissipates quickly. Excellent clarity.

Nose
Sweet breads, biscuit, caramel and candy sugar.

Taste
Sweet brown breads and biscuity malts drenched in caramel and dusted with candy sugar. Touches of toast, brown sugar and cocoa. Has a very malty profile with no perceivable bitterness.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, smooth, oily and subtly crisp with carbonation.

Overall
An outstanding Oktoberfest! Seek it out if you're a fan of the style.

Growler-fill from the release party. Deep copper color with a couple fingers worth of foam. Pretty good head retention and sparse lace formation. Rich, malty aroma with a solid presence of caramel/toffee/butterscotch notes. Faint floral hop notes. Doesn't have the harmonious blend of noble hops and malty tones that the top marzens display.

The flavor profile is rich and malt-forward, but still balanced. Starts out fairly malty-sweet. Bitterness comes in mid-palate through to a clean, dry finish. Slick mouthfeel that could benefit from a bit more carbonation. Like liquid bread with a touch of honey. Some more hops to spice things up would take this up a notch in the flavor department.

This, like the Great Lakes Oktoberfest, is a robust take on the marzen style that sort of leans toward the maibock style. High Point / Ramstein does some really renditions of traditional German styles.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Picked up a sixtel last month... stunned to see it at a distributor, so had to drop the $95.

Pours with a healthy 2-3F of cream-colored head over a hazy, deep amber body - very American. Good lacing.

Aromas were bread/yeast, sweet potatoes, and cardboard. Not too strong relative to the flavor.

Mouthfeel was pretty rich, with a good zest on the palate, and finishing creamy. This one is heavy on the malty sweetness. Lots of caramel, touch of molasses, whole wheat bread, and a nice hop kiss in the finish keeps it from being too cloying.

This one drinks like a 7%+ beer, as it's rather "thick" and sweet relative to other Marzens. If you're into the sweeter side of styles, you will really like this one (if you can find it!)

Served on tap at Pilsener Haus in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours a clear dark orange/copper to amber in color with minimal amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall dense light beige head that slowly reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of toasted and caramel malts with a lighter amount of floral hop aromas.

T: Moderate flavors of toasted and caramel malts with just a hint of sweetness upfront. There is some bitterness in the finish from the floral hops. Decent amounts of complexity for the style.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth with a light amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Probably the most enjoyable beer in this style that I have tried, and I have tried quite a few. Easy to drink due to the smoothness and very sessionable.
