Hazy unfiltered bright orange, one finger of white head with quite a bit of lace hanging around. Smell is malty and bready, some sweeter scents including caramel, toasted bread, fairly fruity and yeasty, some orange/citrus as well. Taste is malty and earthy, caramel, drying after an initial sweetness, more of the yeasty flavours the nose holds qwith a mild bitterness. Medium carbonation, medium body, fairly good mouthfeel. Pretty enjoyable stuff here, nice for the season.

Seasonal enjoyed at the Toronto brewpub. Peachy shine to a deep yellow body, unfiltered look, a little white head. Appropriately carbonated, smooth, but had to wait until warmed a bit as served way too cold. Neutral aroma, only a tad of malt. Fruity flavours, although on the sweet side, it has decent drinkability.

Had a half pint at The 3 Brewers in Toronto. Pours a golden-orange colour with thin white head that has nice enough retention, yet no lacing. Smells quite sweet for a marzen, very fruity with a bready malt base. Flavour is sweet without much bitterness. I'm glad The 3 Brewers are actually doing some seasonals now, as I may have to head back to try their new beers whenever they are on.

There's no other customers in the bar when I get there, and the ceiling speakers are churning out a mixture of eighties pop and metal. Taking a seat at the bar I'm told by the waitress that in addition to their regular lineup they also have a special brew which is a Munich beer. Sure, I said, why not? A poor accompaniment to poutine, but a good one for the cool October weather.

It turns out that the Munich beer is in fact a decent rendition of an oktoberfest, though this empty bar is far-removed from a tent of German merrymaking. A bright and hazy orange is capped by a finger of sticky white foam. Evident floaties recall the pulp in orange juice and make the last few sips unmanageable. The aroma does a poor job of setting the table, but I don't care. Its a decent beer, and its fitting for the occasion. Digging deep you'll find a bready malt base and a splash of citrus.

The flavour amps things up nicely, and the bready spine comes to the fore, with consecutive waves of lemon and soapiness providing interest. Erring to the sweet and malty, this is a highly quaffable lager, and ticks the style boxes appropriately. The body is also doing it for me. Looking past the hideous floaties, its got a nice chewy depth to it and a sweet slickness. This is perhaps their best beer.

Blink 182 blares from the speakers... where are they these days?
