OKTOBERFEST!

A> This beer is a gentle amber, poured a 1 - 1.5 finger head that didn't stick around for too long, minimal lacing.

S> Nice boquet, mostly a nice sweetness from the malt, but also a little bit of spiciness

T> Delicious. Full disclosure, I love Oktoberfests so I am a little biased. Nice carmel malt backbone with flavors of spiciness and earthiness from the hops. Just a bit of green apple from the yeast.

M> Weakest part of this brew is the mouthfeel which is a bit too watery. Granted it's supposed to be a drinkable style, but it's just too thin. Leaves the mouth wet.

O> Let's be honest, this isn't the best Oktoberfest but it blows away almost any domestic "oktoberfest" beer you could compare it to. In the end, it's a delicious beer. It's complex enough for enthusiasts, yet gentle enough for people who aren't avid beer drinkers. How could anyone dislike this? It's like fall in a glass!

Nice light brown color, tan head is thick and rocky, but does fade rather quickly. Just a few bubbles in this märzen.

A nice caramel malty aroma, sweet and hearty. This is just a great reminder of the season that's coming. Taste is sweet malty goodness, caramel and some light roasty character. Bit of a bitter turn in the finish, and this lingers for a short while.

Nice medium bodied, easy drinking beer that satisfies on a cool late-summer afternoon.
