Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a stein glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep amber orange with lot of rising bubbles. Solid two finger off white head which slowly settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A toasty, bready, and nicely sweet malt forward aroma with hints of caramel, biscuit, and fruit. Toasted barley malt with upfront hints of sweet caramel, toffee, biscuit, grains, cracker, and lager yeast. Fruit hints of apple, pear, lemon, and a little fig. Subtle spice hints of cinnamon and pepper. Light earthy hop hints. A pretty solid smell.

Taste: Like it smells, a nicely bready, toasty, and sweet malt driven taste with notes of biscuit, caramel, and fruit undertones. Toasted barley malt with bready notes of biscuit, caramel, toffee, toast, grains, cracker, and lager yeast. Fried fruit notes of apple, lemon, and pear along with a little fig. Subtle spice notes of cinnamon, clove, and pepper. Very light with the earthy hops. A pretty solid Marzen taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, crisp, and very smooth with a drying finish.

Overall: A pretty solid take on a German style Marzen. Good mix of toasty malt and subtle fruit notes.

Another solid octofest. Heavy on the Carmel biscuit, with a balanced clove. Not super sweet. Slight German bite after. Not much head on the pour. A little lighter on the color. Nice. Not everything comes together in the end.
