Reviewed cold from a bottle to a glass

A - Poured a decent one finger of foam, copper tan color, lots of carbonation present

S - Sweet caramel, roasted malts, hints of hops present

T/M - Medium bodied, smooth crisp flavor, great blend of malts and hop bitterness

D - Very drinkable Oktoberfest, medium bodied, well balanced, I would for sure get this brew again. Another great brew from Three Floyds. I recommend this brew

Poured 22oz bottle into a weizen glass. Lighter bronze with a nice 2.5 finger head. Leaves a collar and swaths of lacing around the glass. Aromas is grainy malty, and sweet bread with a touch of light earthy hops. Good amount of malts, grain, sweet bread and hints of caramel. Light earthy hops give it a bit more. On the lighter side with good carbonation, clean and crisp. Smooth and easy drinking even on a warm day. Pretty decent take on this style of beer.

Not much to say about this one. Its a typical Marzen and is quite normal despite being from 3F. It had a nice caramel and bread type malt backbone with mid to low carbonation. Admittedly, this is not my favorite style but I do enjoy tasting and seeing how others differ. I think this one is a bit on the sweeter side and makes a bit less sessionable then some of the german oktoberfest.

All in all I think this is a good representation of the style but would appreciate a little more creativity from 3F as they tend to do.

Three Floyds is newly returned to Ohio, and I gotta say that I'm truly digging the label art. This may be my favorite I've seen thus far though; it looks like a couple of Kaisers swordfighting with a traditional blue and white diagonal checked background and the Three Floyd's hands creeping up with hops and barley.

I poured this into a 500 ml sized strange glass. The lager pours an amber gold, with a two finger head that reduces to a mere lid and very minor lacing.

A sweet toffee malt aroma overlays a grassy smell, with hints of hints of grapes and sweet fruit.

Lighter, fruitier and sweeter than other Oktoberfest/Märzen style brews I've had, this lager starts with a honey, fruity sweet, with hints of caramel malt, before transitioning to a mildly grassy middle and a slight kiss of hops to finish. Easily the least bitter TF I've had to date, I get hints of tangerine, apricot, peach, and creamsicle, before the sweet malt gives way to grassiness.

Light to light-medium in body, this is a super smooth and easy drinking beer.

Wow, I thought from the smell this would be kind of ho-hum, but the taste really impressed. Unfortunately, it didn't impress me as representative of the style; it is way too fruity. Still, tasty, easy drinking, and enjoyable, I'd definitley put another of these down if given the chance.
