On tap at Tired Hands Fermentaria in Ardmore, PA.

This one pours a nice amber, mostly clear, with a small white/brown head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells like caramel, toffee, lightly grassy hops, yams, and brown sugar toast. Definitely doesn't smell traditional- of course not.

This doesn't really feel much like an Oktoberfest-style beer, as expected. It does succeed as a nice sweet-potato accented brown ale, or something like that. There's a nice bready and caramelly malt backbone, with some brown sugar. The sweet potato flavor isn't dominant, but a nice earthy and slightly sweet way to accent the good base beer.

This is medium bodied, slightly creamy, with a good level of carbonation.

Though this is barely a representation of the style, it's still a fun beer.

Light copper with a big light tan head and superb lacing. Notes of yam, light caramel, sweet bread, light flower and spice. Super creamy feel, lightly carbed, soft and slightly dry. A superbly executed and different from the traditional marzen.

On-tap @ Tired Hands Brewing Company in Ardmore, PA.

Deep amber color with a one-finger head. Mild aroma of toasted bready malts with a hint of sweet potatoes. Smooth malty flavor with the sweet potatoes really coming through. Medium bodied and nice balance in the finish. Blurs the lines between a vegetable beer and Oktoberfest but it totally works.
