10-3-2011 Purchased from Sicialiano bro's in Grand Rapids, MI. Enjoyed in a tall Pilsner Glass

A - Clear Golden Amber color with a thin white frothy head.

S - Deep malty smell. Very unique when compared to other Oktoberfest brews. I can't place my nose on what exactly I'm getting into here, but it almost has a fruity essence to it.

T - Robust rich malty flavor. This clearly has more character to it than most Marzen's I've tried.

O - It has the malty and rich flavor, yet it packs a punch at the back of your tongue that keeps you coming back for more. This version says, "step yo' game up" to other versions of the fall classic. This is one of the best I've tried and I'd give it a big hell ya.
