Sweet malt aroma from the bottle. Pours with just a touch of fading froth. This is a heavier bodied marzen than most American ones I've had. It has a strong caramel malt backbone with hints of toasted spice and alcohol. Not much of a hop presence, but enough bitterness to offset the sweet maltiness.

Smooth drinking Oktoberfest. Light on maltiness and bready aroma. Beautiful copper color. One thing I did notice it has a fizzy finish not something I find in Oktoberfest I like.

Pours a clear golden coloration with a medium, foamy head. Smells of sweet caramel, biscuity malt with faint hints of honey and grains. Taste follows the nose, with a mix of caramel, biscuity, grainy malt heavily dominating and very little hops coming through. Some light earthy/grassy/herbal notes are present though. Finishes quite crisp, with a very light bitterness and some grainy/herbal notes lingering in the aftertaste. Medium body with medium/lively carbonation. Crisp, refreshing, boring lager.

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!

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.
