Pours clear, copper in color with 1/2 inch head and sediment. Taste is wheat bread, grain, and light grassy hops. Medium bodied, medium-low carbonation, sweet and crisp. Makes for a tasty, sold American version of the style. Appearance aside, this is a good beer.

-Oktoberfest lager in std. pint. Bot. 08.09.17 consumed 11.28.17.

A: Coppery-penny pour has a good fill of effervesce. A firm and frothy toothpaste white head is one inch and remains in good standing. Sticky ring lacing. Traditional lager appearance. Nice.

S: Fresh green noble hops, wet flowers, backed by some sugary toasted malt. A bit of small dried lemon fruit with fresh barley and cracker malt. Faint hints of apple peel yeastiness. Overall, clean and crisp, toasty malt with a good strength.

T: Flavor of deep toasted bread and barley and sweet malts provides an ample and sturdy backbone. Fresh noble hops are soft and delightful with some apple peel and fruity nuances from the yeast. Toasted caramel and toasted cracker malt. Nice fresh hops.

M: Big bite of carbonation adds crispness and an edge with a medium slick malt texture. Toasty bread warmth.

O: Really nice deep toasted malting, sturdy american style backbone with traditional German noble hops. A really nice appearance, crisp mouthful, brings respect and boldness to the style and much lager love for those who may prefer ales. Cheers to this, pitcher worthy, fireside on a brisk October evening with good friends.

Description: Drank this directly from the bottle, so appearance is....Smell was malty, yeasty, bready and a little sweet. Fairly muted overall. Taste is similar to the smell and, again, pretty muted. Slightly bitter finish but otherwise much more on the malty, sweet side. Feel is light to medium bodied and carbonation is medium to high.

Overall: 3.5 (This beer is average and I would not likely drink it again) Like most Oktoberfest beers, this beer is pretty uninteresting and doesn't leave me wanting more. Having had a number of fantastic beers from Fat Head's, I'll chalk that up to the style and not the brewery. Needless to say, you can pass on this one.

Lightly weathered copper orange in color with a light haze. Poured with a tall, soapy, off-white foam with excellent retention. Bready malt aromas with notes of dark bread crust and crackers. Medium bodied with soft medium carbonation and a delicate feel. Bready malt flavor up front followed by medium light, herbal hop bitterness through the middle. Grainy malt flavors with cracker notes from the middle to the end. Finished cleanly with light grainy malt flavors and a touch of bitterness that doens;t last. Fabulous malty aromas and flavors with an amazing delicate feel. Very easy drinking. This was excellent.

A little bland, the amber malt and slight alcohol tinge only really peeks through at the way end, the main body of the beer is just rather lacking though it doesn’t do anything wrong

Bottle, no visible date. Sam Adams glass.

A: pours a copper hue with some bits of sediment, carbonation just blasting away, and a finger of thick white head that retains really well. Lacing was so-so.

S: immediate familiar scent of rich malt and the sourish smell of lager yeast. A little lemony citrus, perhaps. This smells like this is going to be a first rate lager.

T: immediate breadiness and a little sourdough yeastiness on the arrival, fills in to a thick malty and toasted middle with more of that lager yeast taste, toward the end a very, very, mild bittering and some residual sourdough yeastiness.

M: lighter than expected; definitely a mid-bodied beer and in the thicker side for lagers; somewhat slick, which is atypical and notable. This is not cloyingnor really even sweet, but is maltier than Bell's Octoberfest, and somewhat less drinkable.

O: appearance is not as clear as I'd like, smell is pretty spot on, taste is good but not great, finish is decent but not great. This is a good Oktoberfestbier, but not a great one. Lagers are hard to do, and this is an above average effort by any standard.

Clear orange-amber with a finger of dense near-white head. Nice rings of lacing. Sweet malty, bready aroma, which continues to the taste. Almost a cherry-like level of sweetness. Light to medium bodied for the style with decent carbonation. One of the sweeter examples of the style.

Having this on-tap served to me in a pint glass, this beer draws a clear, dark amber/copper color with a white head that's about half an inch thick when first served that settles to a thick ring lining the inside of the glass. Not much lacing. Aromas of toasted, biscuity, caramel malt sweetness along with hints of brown sugar and molasses. Has an earthy hop aroma. The taste is pretty much the same, with somewhat toasted, biscuity, caramel malt sweetness with hints of molasses and brown sugar. Some earthy, slightly floral hops that add a bit of bitterness that cut the dominant sweet flavors just slightly. Has a crisp, yet smooth, medium bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Has a clean finish with a slightly dry aftertaste. A solid beer and fairly good representation of the the style, just about too sweet I feel.

12 oz pour our of a bottle into a speigelau IPA glass. Bottles on 7/20

A: Huge chunky fat white head that tumbles like a Belgian head. Body has great clarity and it a bright amber orange.

S: lots of bready fought malts hit your nose exactly as the floral spicy hops do giving the beer an almost bitter smell.

T: fairly sweet lots of nice grainy doughy sweet malts followed by some light spicy hops.

M: good carbonation lightercto medoum bodied.

O: This beer isn't as sweet on tap for some reason a tad more balanced. It's not a bad beer it's just a tad sweet and the hops do not come through in the taste as much as the nose.

Bottled 7/20/17

It is a deep reddish copper color. The large, frothy white foam didn't have very good retention. Even with a hard pour.

It smells very malty, and fairly sweet. Kind of like a nut bread with a touch of earthy, and sort of metallic aroma.

It is significantly sweet and doughy. Not a bunch of flavor early, but towards the end, and warmer, there is more of a toasted note and the spicy hops become noticeable with a little touch of herbal/floral. Finishes clean, crisp, and a little dry. The body is a little on the too heavy side. While the fluffy feel is nice, it makes it seem like a fuller, stronger beer.

This has some pretty good qualities and some off ones. I think it is a good beer, but not one of my favorite Marzens. Too sweet and a little too heavy. Reminds me quite a bit of Great Lakes version.
