Sampling right now on 2/16/14. From the back of the beer cooler from last autumn. bottled chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a handled glass stein.

Pours burnt orange in color with no head to speak of. Very spotty lacing is seen also but is very light. The aroma is of sweet malt with a hint of caramel. The taste is about the same with the malt really coming through that ends in a sweet at first then slightly bitter finish. Not over done and perfect carbonation.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a light copper/ orange amber color with a one finger of fizzy white head. The head fades fast at first, but then slows at is gets smaller, eventually fading to leave a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is heaviest of lightly toasted malt and a good amount of caramel sweetness. These aromas are the bulk of the smell, but other lighter aromas of a grassy and toffee aroma are there as well, overall creating a sweet and lightly roasted aroma.

Taste – The taste begins with some bready flavors with some caramel sweetness. As the flavor advances the bready flavors gain a bit of roasted nature toward the middle and the end. Along with the change in the bready flavors, there are also changes in the sweet flavors as well. The caramel at the front is joined by some toffee flavors in the middle and a lighter fruit flavor at the end. With all these transitions, an herbal and grassy flavor comes to the tongue more toward the end of the taste, leaving a decently roasted but moderately sweet and grassy flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly lighter side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side. Both are rather appropriate for the style and quite appropriate for the flavor profile of the beer.

Overall – A rather average Oktoberfest. A decent blend of malt, roast, sweet and hop creating a rather easy drinking brew overall.

12oz bottle

A- Pours a clear copper color with golden hues when held up to the light.

S- The aroma is toasted malt and some tart citrus in the nose as well.

T- The taste like the aroma is mostly toasted malt flavors with a very moderate touch of hops in the finish.

M- The mouthfeel is light bodied and heavily carbonated.

O- Overall, this is a pretty average brew that I probably wouldn't purchase again. Not bad, but not something that stands out among Oktoberfest beers.

Purchased in a pick six at Collins Mid-Towne Liquor in Tulsa, Ok. while on a business trip.
A- Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Color was amber, carbonation was very evident.
B- The smell is great. Like bisquits.
C- Taste is good over-all, very crisp, very drinkable, with a slight hoppy finish.
M- A little more carbonation than I like . More like a Miller lite on steroids.
O- I'm mixed on this beer. As a Marzen, it is certainly not anywhere near the top. But as a drinkable beer, it is actually pretty good. Very tasty. If it had about 1/2 the carbonation it would be even better. I recomend trying it, but having said that. I probably won't be buying it again. But not because it was bad, I've just had much better Marzens.

12oz bottle poured into a perfect pint.

A - Dark golden but not quite amber in color. Perfect clarity. Small white head recedes to a small ring around the glass. No lacing.

S - Light base/biscuit malt. The most mild of all munich malts. Hint of fruity/lemony aroma.

T - Pleasant grassy hops enter as early as malt does here, a perfect dance of balance. Malt has a great backbone of toastiness that sits in back and gradually gives way to more and more noble hop flavor within. Finish leaves me with modest bitterness, which is assertive enough to dry and quench, drawing me in for another sip.

M - Medium-light body, medium-light carbonation, mild sweetness yet drying making this all the more drinkable.

O - The only unusual aspect of this beer for me was the citrusy aroma I experienced. A great oktoberfest otherwise all around. Plenty of character yet not a palate crusher, one to please you through the entirety of festival days.

Judgement - Try
