3.4/5 rDev -12.4%
Into a pint glass. Half finger of head on top of a copper body.
Smell is wet grain and a little earthy.
Taste has good malt sweetness, but not too much. Mild bitterness. Bready and malty overall.
Crisp, but still smooth texture with moderate carbonation and medium body.
A good beer. If you find one, drink it.

3.4/5 rDev -12.4%
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: pours a vibrant copper/ruby color with about a fingers worth of white head that doesn't stick around for long with not much lacing to speak of.
S: Caramel malt and a light hop presence in the nose.
T: Much like the nose this one opens up with caramel/toffee notes and has a nice floral hop finish.
M: A medium body with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really like this one I had it right after I had this years Sam Adams Oktoberfest and I would pick this one every time over it.

4.15/5 rDev +7%
BBD of 2nd week of December...
Pours an effervescent amber with a thumb of cream colored head. Superior head retention & lacing
S: Toasty, grainy, some perfumy hops
T: Toasty malt, grassyness, a touch of grainyness up front. Some pear fruityness as this warms, a touch of biscuitty malt. Finishes crisp, dry, fruitty & refreshing
MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, nice balance
This is a well put together Marzen, easily one of the better ones I've had in a few years

3.35/5 rDev -13.7%
Appearance: Sort of a bronze amber colored body. The head might have been a half inch or so. The lace was very spread out.
Smell: A very floral aroma for a Marzen. It did have some biscuit tones though.
Taste: A bit corny at first with some grass and grain tones followed by some floral hops in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Thin with some carbonation bite.
Overall: It is a good beer but an alright Marzen.

Pours a clear, amber color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of sweet malt, hops, hint of pale malt, hint of alcohol, and a hint caramel malt. Fits the style of a Marzen/Oktoberfest. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, slight yeast, slight hop, slight sweet malt, and slight caramel malt. Overall, good aroma, feel, body, and blend.
