A - Clear amber with a finger of off white head with some compact bubbles making up some minor lacing.
S - Sweet malts, caramel, bread, earthy tones, some spice, a touch of cinnamon.
T - Classic sweet Marzen kinda flavor with a nice touch of some dark earthy hops, some cinnamon, a little pepper.
M - Partly creamy, well carbonated.
O - Good Octoberfest for sure, like the earthy quality it has to it.

Nut brown with a tightly packed off-white head.
Smell some kid of spice, maybe cinnamon. Not too strong, but nice.
Tastes nice. Slightly bitter up front, but mellows into a smooth warmth with an occasional pinch, which is nice.
Very good body and a creaminess lacking from a lot of Marzen style beers (maybe intentionally?). I am a fan.
This is a good Oktoberfest beer, the only one I've bothered to rate this year. I recommend it.

Fresh, clean, and crisp - no unpleasant aftertaste at all.
Not a particularly strong smell one way or the other.
On the appearance side, my only negative comment is that the head was a bit thin and fleeting.
Overall though, fantastic lager that is as smooth as it comes. Makes you feel like you're at a pub in Munich!
