look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3
Served on-tap in a 5 oz. sampler glass.
A: A clear, dark copper color. Thin head, strong and thick lacing.
S: Floral notes.
T: Sweet malt, somewhat bitter finish. Well-balanced.
M: Smooth, well-carbonated.
D: Not a huge fan of it overall. I suppose it fits the style, but I wasn't impressed with any particular aspect. I probably wouldn't reach for another if I had other options.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured a 12oz bottle into a pilsner style glass. Poured a clear amber with almost no head and no lacing. Aroma is simple, with malty notes of biscuit and a little bit of fruit. Taste is about the same. Not much depth to it. A little hint of carbonation and a thinner mouthfeel. Not bad, but unexciting when compared to its German counterparts.

Lancaster Brewing - Oktoberfest
Overall - another mediocre märzen. This one may have been past it's prime too - I got medium head with an agressive pour, but it faded quickly without any lacing. The beer did have have a nice redish-copper color, and it poured perfectly clear. Taste was OK - a bit malty, but slightly off somehow I don't know how to describe. Not bad, but I won't seek it out again - I'd probably prefer a Sam Adams which is generally my idea of a middle of the road Oktoberfest.
Bottle says Wilkes-Barre, PA (I'm assuming that's near Lancaster?) There's no sign of an ABV on the bottle or cap. The bottle has a few stamps on it - 20512, 14960K+ and 15/21/174/12/11.38/S - not sure if anyone can get a bottling date out of that or not.
