12 oz. bottle.

Brilliantly clear light copper body. Good inch of dense, creamy, light beige head. Some nice lacing. Doughy cookie malts, caramel, cooked carrots, toasted grains, and some spicy hops.

Lightly toasted malts up front. Faint soapy-ness follows, briefly, before sweetish, caramel-y malts take over. Cookie dough and caramel play together nicely. Cooked carrots and vegetbales into the finish. Lingering sweetish malts and spicy noble hop bitterness. Moderate body, with a gently carbonated, smooth feel. A very solid Ofest!

12oz. Orangy/gold pour, thin layer of bubbly white.

Aroma, a bock like fruitiness. Some caramel maltyness.

Taste, thankfully not quite as fruity, but there is still some apple. Some toffee and a nice toasted malt note. Finishes with a little tea like herbalness.

There is just a little too much carbonation. Otherwise it is on the lighter side and drinks pretty easy. Maybe just a tad thin. Plenty good at the price point.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into my Bruery tulip. Picked up a 6 pack of this at Food Emporium for $11 today.

a - Pours a somewhat transparent orange-amber color with moderate carbonation evident and one finger of fluffy white head. Head leaves a little bit of lacing on the glass.

s - Smells of toasted malts, burnt malts, bready malts, and some light sweet fruity malts. Not a ton going on here but not bad.

t - tastes of fruity malts, apples, toasted malts, bready malts, biscuit, grains, and burnt malts. More fruit than the nose and a little bit sweeter. A step up from the nose for me.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall an above average marzen, though nothing crazy. Nice sweet fruits in the taste and easy to drink. Worth checking out if you see it and are looking for a marzen, but nothing to seek out.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A - light, transparent amber with a big, soft, frothy, white head that has decent retention

S - caramel, a bit sweet, a little sugary

T - caramel, a bit bitter, a little sweet, faintly toasty

M - medium bodied, well carbonated, a bit crisp

This is a nice, drinkable version of an Oktoberfest. It has nice flavor and a solid body. It's worth a try if you're looking for a good Oktoberfest beer.

12 oz bottle.

First had two one the beach, having one now pouted into a glass.

A - copper, very clear beer. the look leaves a little to want.

S - I can't really derive much of a smell at all from this. some malt sweetness, disappointing. had to pour another one extra head to prove to myself the lack of smell.

T - Drinkable. Not my favorite word to describe a beer, but it is what it is. First taste is very clear, smooth, and that Munich malt sweetness, a little stronger than I would like in an Oktoberfest beer. Some soft nuttiness is in the middle of the beer, giving it a nice flavor not to it, balancing the sweetness some. Finishes with tiny, barely noticeable taste of hops.

Mouth - clear, smooth, very drinkable

O - Good beach beer! Thats about all I can say for it, drinks fast and easy, just disappoints me. I was in Germany for 2 months this summer, and in Munich for the end of it, and I just compare all Oktoberfest beers and the like to the Dunkels there, and it just is too light and too sweet in comparison.

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Pours clear orange copper color with a finger of sticky foam that coats the glass. Aroma is malty, Munich malt, spicy sweetness, and a kiss of earthy hops.

First sip is very clean, with a basic munich malt sweetness and smooth finish. Hops are minimal. This is a nice, malty session beer with great drinkability. Crisp, clean, flavorful, but not overly complex.

A solid Oktoberfest. Nothing Earth-shattering here, but a clean tasting flavorful beer. Would get again.

One of the best American Oktoberfests!

Pours a nice rich amber color with a long-lasting off-white head with some nice lacing.

Beautiful aromatic nose of malts and caramel.

Just a wonderful tasting marzen with a balance of mild hops and delightful sweetness.

Gets even better when it when it warms to room temperature.

I bought two six packs at Publix and I am really savoring them!
