The appearance was just average.

The smell was lightly above average, and clean.

The taste was good, but it wasn't very distinct.

The mouth feel was smooth and had a slight crispness within the smoothness. There was no slime.

I took notes on my phone so I'm not writing this as I drink it.

A-Pours a finger of off white bubbly foam that is mostly gone before the first drink.
S-Malty goodness, some alcohol aroma with a little spiciness.
T-Lightly toasted malt with toffee like taste and definite fresh bread character. A hint of flowery, spicy hops-the Noblest. Crisp finish. Very smooth
M-Easy drinking with a little mouthfeel. Light on the carbonation without an alcohol bite-very soft tasting. This is a beer that was made for multiple steins.
O-In a tasting of American and German Octoberfest beers this one was the favorite. Delicious, easy to drink-what a Marzen should be.
