A local brewer that I do like, and this Octoberfest offering of theirs might very well be my favorite of their offerings...

A very nice orangish hue poured from the glass with very little head or lacing. The smell was mostly wheat-beer-like, which I found a very interesting twist to the normal marzen. The feel was somewhat carbonated, very dry, yet smooth and drinkable. Speaking of drinkability - that taste was good - I noted some wheat, a touch of spice, maybe even maltier than most other Octoberfests I have had. Again, I really like this beer. It was another example of one I almost walked away from but am now glad I grabbed and had the pleasure to try.

a real average take on the style here. sweet up front, sweet down the back stretch, not real authentically german with the grain either, although the character of the grain is not my issue. i am looking for a more flavorful beer, caramel sweetness does not equal a marzen beer. the lager yeast has no flavor at all, and may not have finished its duty, while a thin body and slightly metallic tinge doesnt help. i get some apple in here, which works for a fall beer but may be a product of an off flavor. carbonation is fine, average body, standard feel. this is one of those styles that can be such an expression of the season, but this seems sloppy all over. the residual sugar is the biggest mark against it, but i did finish my glass, so it wasnt appalling by any stretch. not a great first beer from these guys for me.
