Pours lighter gold/tan than expected for the style. Aroma is slightly off, a mix of some malt and a little skunky. I’d think I got a bad batch if other reviews weren’t also quite low. Taste is boring, feel is overcarbonated.

Appearance - 3.75/5
An extremely clear orange-brown. No head. A sparse amount of carbonation rises slowly to the top. Nice color and look. I would have liked some head on this beer though.

Smell - 3.75/5
A deep sweet maltiness, along with a hint of alcohol. The sweetness has a fruitiness to it. Also possibly caramelized sugar.

Taste - 3.5/5
Lightly sweet toasty maltiness, fruitiness, alcohol, some hints of hops. Overall I liked the taste, but I felt it could have been a little bit stronger. The taste seems kind of watered down. Nothing fancy, just a good quality classic brew.

Mouthfeel - 3.5/5
The beer is light in body, perhaps getting close to watery (but not quite there). Moderately crisp. The carbonation is quite light but I feel this compliments the beer nicely, and allows the flavors to be experienced more. I would have liked a little more carbonation though.

Overall - 3.5/5
Overall, this was a decent beer, but it lacked any head, was not super flavorful and was a little bit too watery (and Märzen/Oktoberfest beers are supposed to be full-bodied).
