From a cool-looking blue bottle pours a nice, rich, golden amber colored liquid. Smallish head drops fast and with a lot of fizzy noise. Won't be any lace here, either.
Smell is overly hoppy for the style. Malt present but weak. A medicinal note shoves it way up the nostrils.
Taste is more well balanced. Malt and hops evenly vie for the tastebuds. A slight caramel note, maybe some light brown sugar.
Medium-bodied with an effervescense that is sharp upfront but mellows quickly. A coating on the palate and tongue leads to a thickening feeling in the throat. Not particularly good that. Overall, I am not impressed by the company that brought Gaspar's Porter to my lips.

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.

12oz bottle

A- Blue bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a clear amber color with an off-white head.

S- The aroma is malty with some caramel and very mild hops in the aroma.

T- The taste like the aroma is malty up front with some sweetness coming in from the malt. There is some caramel flavors and just a touch if hops in the finish.

M- The mouthfeel is light bodied with a good amount of carbonation.

O- Overall, not a bad Oktoberfest beer. Worth a try.
