It was a year or so ago since I had it, but I remember being disappointed with this beer.

Pours a clear amber color. 1/2 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of strong sweet malt, alcohol, earthiness, hint of citrus hops, and a hint of piney hops. Fits the style of a Marzen / Oktoberfest. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong sweet malt, alcohol, strong earthiness, hint of citrus hops, and a hint of piney hops. Overall, definitely a malt bomb that is dominated by the earthiness.

Poured into a mug, the appearance was a ruddy dark orange somewhat leaning to hazy brown. Nice transparency. Thin white foamy lacing clings nicely all around the glass. The aroma starts off with some sweet to bitter earthy, herbal, grassy, and piney hops. Oktoberfest levels of pure nutty/caramel/toffee sweetness slides in with enough balance to make sure the drinker knows that this is an Oktoberfest beer. The flavor leans a balanced hoppy to malty sweet. Malty rich nutty and toffee/caramel aftertaste leads into a quick sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable smooth feel to it. Low carbonation. Acceptable semi-stickiness. Overall, this was a pretty good Oktoberfest that I could have again.

Pours a beautiful dark orange with an inch tall tan head into a Schlafly tulip. Great Oktoberfest smell and taste, with some mild hoppiness. Leaves behind gorgeous lacing from the top to bottom of the glass. One of the better Oktoberfest beers I've had and another winner from Lagunitas.

Dark copper in color with excellent clarity. There's an inch of creamy beige foam on top that subsides to a fingernail after a few minutes. There's a subtle light malt note on the nose. I'm tasting a very malty beer that finishes very sweet. I can definitely taste that cedarlike note from the hops and it seems a bit out of place. The mouth is very dry, smooth and crisp.

Picked up a single from TW Arrowhead on 11-13-16 for $2.79. Bottled on 9-14-16; received at TW on 11-7-16.
Rating that follows is solely from an enjoyment perspective as the beer is outside the Marzen style guidelines.

Beer poured amber brown with a beautiful white head that is leaving lacing behind.

Nose is on the sweet side with a hint of floral hops.

Taste is a tad sweet but is balanced nicely by an ample amount of hops. Not getting this is a marzen style.

Feel is smooth as it glides nicely across the palate.

Overall this is a very easy drinking beer that i would definitely have again!

Coppery orange, with a slight haze. Thin, foamy head with streak lacing. Aroma is orange and spice, bread - potato bread perhaps? Herbal and fruit notes as well. The flavor is malty and sweet, with a hint of hops bitterness. Worth trying, but not one I would drink often.

This was picked up a long time ago, saved one to review, let's give it a whirl. Popping the top I get a waft of zesty maltiness. Pours into my SAPP to a nice amber color with a a beige fine bubble head. On the taste this brew has a nice sweet maltiness of some spiced brown sugar and a flat hoppiness that has a very dull subdued bitterness, then all transitioning to a roasted caramel and peanut brittle aftertaste. More of a brown ale for me, very tasty and sneaky.
