Poured into a stein. Semi-transparent rust color with a one finger head that recedes quickly and doesn't leave lacing. Aroma of sour dough bread and hops. Taste of roasted malt, toffee, and spicy hops with a crisp, slightly dry finish. Medium carbonation and medium-light body with no aftertaste.
I like this Oktoberfest. I buy a 6er of it every September and will continue to pick it up while it's convenient. It's malt forward and simple but succeeds in it's more modest approach.

Pours out to a half inch head and no lacing. Color is a deep gold hue that seems too light for style. Aroma is cheap sulfury macro lager, veggies, cooked pasta and toasted grains. Flavor is harsh and frustrating. There seems to be no focus but sulfur, grain sweetness and a harsh, unappetizing bitterness. Mouthfeel is a bit rough, which I describe the way canned Coke versus bottled coke feels (don't tell me aluminum cans don't affect craft beer!). There's something about the way it coats my tongue and makes my teeth feel chalky that's just wrong. This is not worthy of being called a Marzen/O-fest. Pass. I'd rather have a PBR than whatever this is. Obviously something went wrong. I can't imagine they seriously thought this batch was worthy.
