I have been winnowing through the backlog of beer here at Chez Woody, eschewing hoppy IPAs & DIPAs for everything else that seems to get short shrift. I have several Oktoberfest/Marzens lined up for this evening.

From the bottle: "Marzen Style Lager [-] A German tradition celebrating the harvest"; "Our GABF Silver Medal Winner".

Finally, a cap that actually Pop!ped off as opposed to being a screw-top! I celebrated with a heavy-handed pour that produced two fingers of dense,rocky, deep-tan head with great retention. Color was Deep Amber/Light Copper to Copper (SRM = > 13, < 17) with NE-plus quality clarity. Nose held a pleasant blend of biscuit malt and grassy hops. I was becoming anxious to try this one! Mouthfeel was medium-to-full, big for the style. The taste was unexpectedly skewing towards bitter, with a bready/biscuity maltiness that melded well with the grassy Noble hops. I would have to say that the finish was downright dry, which was again unusual for the style. It went extremely well with the pretzel(s) that I always have standing by for just such an occasion.

Appearance: Pours with a head that doesn't last long. The color of the beer is just what you'd expect from the usual Oktoberfest -- perfectly like Autumn. Looks nice, but lacking overall.

Smell: Meh. Sweet, caramel-like, and malty. Again, average.

Taste/feel: I wonder if these other reviews got a skunked bottle or theirs just wasn't fresh ... I'm getting an above average taste here. The first sip is INCREDIBLY bready tasting. Honestly, almost TOO much so. After that though, you get a super tasty malty Oktoberfest with a very nice mouthfeel.

I haven't had many Oktoberfests (Actually, I've only had this and Sam Adams' up to this point), but I like this one quite a bit more than Sam's. The carbonation and texture and the overall taste. I don't know about you other guys, but I enjoy this one a good bit. Would love to try it on tap.
