Picked up the beautiful 5L minikeg for 13.99, and man did I enjoy this Brew.
Go over to the fridge with my trusty pint glass, and fill'er up.
Poured a dence,solid froth 2-finger head w/massive stick. This isn't as dark as your average Ofest Bier. Its a very clear, pale/gold Brew that has my intrest.
Great on the nose- very clean with pepper spice, butter, Noble Hops, and a touch of alcohol.
This looks, and smells like a really damn good PILS.
Solid spice hop spritz hits the palate then turns oily, and lingers, then a very nice clean sweep of sweet grain in the back pulls it through. Well balanced, and very refreshing. Mouthfeel is light-med with carbonation thats right on.
Drinkability is fantastic-solid good Bier thats labeled an Ofest, but I would put this up against some great pilsners out there.
I will put this one on my list every year for Oktoberfestbier time!

2.83/5 rDev -22%

Clear pale yellow with a head that fades quick. Looks like any other standard european lager.
A touch of spice on the nose with a fair bit of sulfur. I like the slight hop presence, but overall not that appealing.
The taste is a little sweet malt with some not-very-well hidden alcohol. The back end is a bitter for the style but has a harshness.
Strange, harsh mouthfeel.
The alcohol comes through way too much and there's too much sulfur in the nose and a harsh bitterness in the aftertaste.
I was hoping this would grow on me as I got through the half liter, but alas, it got worse.
In the bottom two for me in regards to the Munich O'fests(the other one is Hofbrau.)

Light yellow colour. Head smallish. Not much lacing (0.4L glass: handle, straight-up-sides).
Smells good. Loads of malt at first; grass, hay; a little sour as it goes further down the glass.
Mouthfeel: carbonation is not at all overpowering, yet bubbles exploding in your mouth, pop, pop; underneath smooth flowing, almost velvety even. Taste is tied up with the popping mini-explosions and the smooth-flow. The "pops" are hoppy and dry, the big undercurrent is a balanced blend of malt and hops.
The finish is hoppy, dry, but maybe a little weak (?) - a wee bit metallic I find - but I think I'll have to get a few more bottles to check this out ;-)
Aftertaste is good, clean, and then quite peppery on the tongue - like after eating Rocket salad.
I'm not that familiar with the Märzen style so cant judge it so well in term of for-the-style, but as said, I'll be getting more...
