3.61/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Look: Mostly clear, light amber, with a small white head.

Smell: The smell isn't very strong, but I get a little bit of bready malts.

Taste: BIG malts and yeast, very bready with hints of hops throughout. I could taste the dark toffee they were talking about, some subtle sweetness followed by a warm, bitter aftertaste.

Feel: Full body, normal carbonation, leaves a rather dry, sticky mouthfeel.

Overall: Good beer!

4.25/5  rDev +9.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

LOOKS: A clear copper, with a finger of off white head that lasts, and leaves a nice lacing.
AROMA: Toasty, caramel, grain and a little grass.
TASTE: Same, and a nice sweetness that isn't overbearing.
FEEL: A little slick up front and drier on the finish, average carbonation, solid body.
OVERALL: I prefer it over their other O'fest brew.

Poured from 11.2oz, brown bottle into glass. Dating information on front label '01.19 m (probably best by date) L00985 M 7382A'.
Clear, medium to deep amber colored body. Pours a half of finger of bubbly white head, which disappears and leaves a thin, bubble fed ring.
Aroma of roasted malts and grassy hops.
Taste of toasted malts with toffee, and then some grassy, spicy hops. Bitterness level is noticeable but rather low.
Medium mouth feel. Good carbonation.
Another bready, roasted malt lager with a rather strong taste profile. Touch of sweetness is mostly overcome by the roastiness of the toffee malts.

L - pours with a golden yellow color. One finger of white foam that lasted for over a minute.
S - Spicy, malty aroma.
T - Clear, grainy, malt flavour with some bready, caramel and spicy overtones. Some bitterness that balances the malt sweetness. Taste improves as it warms up.
F - Medium body, good mouthfeel, with good carbonation.
O - a very good Oktoberfest, one that I will drink again.

This is one of the worst Marzens that I tried thus far. It has a strange bitter taste on the finish. They all can't be winners folks. Cheers! C- (70-74) score range

Pours a nice amber color. Smells malty, a little sweet, maybe some caramel. Taste starts malty and gets some grassy hop presence, then ends a little fruity and sweet. Carbonation is perfect for the style, and it goes down very smooth. Glad to give this a try!

Trying this beer fresh out the fridge ice cold , i initially thought it tasted funky, but after letting it warm up the taste went from sour and astringent to smooth and bready, all said and done i really enjoyed this beer, but be advised, in my own opinion its wayyy better after warming up for a good 5 to10 minutes
