3.85/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a bright golden color with a decent tan head that fades a bit too quickly, a bit too light for the style imo. Sweet toasty maltiness in the aroma with only the barest traces of hops. Sweet toasty maltiness but the balancing hops fall a bit short and leave the beer tilting a bit too much towards the sweet side. Good medium-light body to this one and decently quenching. Not a bad brew but not one of the better Oktoberfests that I've had this year. A bit too sweet and not quite toasty enough. This would make a nice session brew but I would prefer other fests first.

3.45/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

I got a 500mL bottle of this as a closeout deal at Woodman’s in Rockford, IL in early 2012 for $1.99.

Pours a cloudy, copper color with a slight head on it. The scent is mild with grassy grains and a slight bit of spices. Taste is malty but rather watery for an Oktoberfest beer. I found some spices in the taste but not as many as I was expecting. Good drinkability and decent taste but probably one of the weaker Marzen beers I have ever had before but seeing how it’s April, I won’t complain too much.

2.98/5  rDev -18.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

500 ml bottle served in a snifter, reviewed live:

A - Pours a semi-transparent orange/caramel color with 2.5 fingers of decently thick, white head. Retention is pretty good, and the head leaves a good bit of lacing as it recedes.

S - Toasted malts, caramel, light floral hops, and an almost mineral like note, though it's not intrusive. Seems fairly simple, but mostly inviting.

T - Toasted malts and biscuity yeast dominate the palate through the climax, where the floral hops notes take over. It's far more bitter than I thought it would be, and it throws off the balance. Simple and muddy.

M - Medium bodied, thick and smooth.

D - It's o.k., but I probably won't have it again. It's imbalanced and not constructed well.
