Poured from 355ml, green colored bottle into glass. Date coding on back label is '07.2018 L1877204 15:50'.
Clear, medium amber colored body. About one finger of head upon pouring which reduces to small island and ring. A few spots of lacing are left behind with each sip.
Aroma is of roasted malts and a little caramel. Rather subtle.
More expressive taste of roasted malts, nuttiness, and caramel. Some spicy hops to counter. Overall more sweet than spicy.
Medium mouth feel, with good carbonation.
Bready beer with some sweetness and a touch of spice. Tasty and sessionable.

Draught "German Mug" at the Brass Tap here in Baltimore while watching the German Super Cup. NOT a bad start to Oktoberfest.

Pours a nice copper color with some tan hues in the head. Scents of nuts and caramel on the nose but nothing exciting. All that matters if this beer tastes very good. Caramel with a nice balance of halletau hops. A bit twingy, like a macro. There are better Oktoberfests out there but I’d never refuse on of these.

This is my 2nd favorite German beer style. This is a decent Marzen, but it's not blowing my hair back or knocking my socks off. Cheers! B- (80-84) score range

This is a solid Oktoberfest on the amber side of the scale. Toasty malt is most prominent with some mild spicy hops and a hint of dark fruits - maybe raisins or dates. Very tasty but I'm not crazy about the green bottle. nb
