2.58/5  rDev -17.8%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, pours a copper color with a short loose off white head that dissipates quickly leaving little lacing, clear

S: light yeasty bread quality, caramel malt, odd citrus note, not much going on

T: on the sweeter side with a little spice, mostly just malty water

M: medium bodied, light carbonation

O: pass on this one, there are much better Marzens out there, drinkable but unimpressive

Serving type: bottle

Had this beer on tap at a chain restaurant. Not sure how long it sat before I received it but it was still quite cold.

A: Medium orange amber with a lace of foam on top, no thick head.

S: Smelt slightly metallic and bread-like.

T: Minimal bitterness which was a plus, but had a metallic taste to go with the smell. Had to work pretty hard to get any deep flavor out of it. Slight nuttiness emerged halfway through as it warmed.

M: Watery, but had a nice quick finish with no lingering after taste. Also very dry finish.

O: Mild beer with subtle flavors. Would try again, but not go out of my way to acquire.

Serving type: on-tap

First Reviewed 10/14/2008

Appearance: Dark Orange. Small head. Laces nicely.

Smell: Biscuit, slight orange pulp. Malt

Taste/Mouthfeel: A bit watery and lacking body. There are some enjoyable orange and malt notes but I have to work to bring them out.

Drinkability: There are better Oktoberfest out there but this would do in a pinch.

Notes: There are better Oktoberfest out there. Not a bad offering. Just an average one.

Serving type: bottle
