Filled up growler at New Beer on 10/29/11. Review from notes:

Poured into Sam Adams pint glass.

A - Poured slightly hazy bright orange color with medium white head that quickly dissipated leaving light lacing around the glass.

S - Grains with citrus zest and light floral scents.

T - Grains with light amount of malts and light honey sweetness. Has a slight bitter citrus finish.

M - Light bodied with high carbonation.

O - Very crisp and refreshing but resembles more of a pilsner than oktoberfest. Other than that a good brew.

Appears to be a pale marzen. Poured into a Wurzburger mug, a large head is produced over the pale yellow/orange body. The smell is like marzen-llite, a little biscuit-y. The taste is crisp and less sweet than your typical marzen, hops are a little more noticeable in this dry take on the style. With a velvety mouthfeel and just the right carbonation, the beer drinks nicely.

this is a great festbier.

pours a bright golden color with thick head. notes of rich maltiness. insanely refreshing and quaffable.

i wasn't a big fan of "pale" marzens before, but lately i've been absolutely loving them. the sessionability of this beer is unbelievable. don't get me wrong, amber marzens are great, but ones like these are brews you can slam down all day (and isn't that what oktoberfest is all about?)

On draft at the Waterfront, Brooklyn.

Poured a medium to dark straw hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a soft bready malt and a musty hop.

The taste consisted of soft malts, a light caramel and fresh baked bread. Noble hops cleaned the flavor a bit.

The mouthfeel was toward the lighter side of the style.

Overall a tasty and light bodied Octoberfest. Very quaffable.
