this is a near perfect marzen lager in my opinion. its as good as it gets, with characteristics you dont usually find in this style liek rich nuttiness and fresh tasting hops. it pours halloweeny looking orange color, crystal clear with a tall and lasting white head of clouds. it smells german malty, duh, but lighter than a lot of these. biscuity, even buttery cracker profile. it also has a touch of sweetness that doesnt stay in the finish. caramel and toffee and baked bread. some balanced hopping as well. i love the flavor, its malty and sturdy, but plenty drinkable, seemingly more layered and interesting than a lot of is peers in the style. lots of grains coming together here. smooth texture, velvety even, same as all the prost beers, theyve got this part dialed. bright carbonation too is always a plus in the style,and a lager yeast with plenty of flavor. this is one ill go back to for sure. the perfect seasonal, really really good. easy to make a night of these and not get too turnt.

12oz bottle. Served in a snifter glass.

Pours a lighter amber body, light orange hue, one finger white head, short retention, bits of lacing. Smells of toffee, nuttiness, bread, touch of phenol, light grassy notes. Flavour is a bit less grassy and on the sweeter side, toffee, bread, biscuit, nut, with a mild grassy/floral finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, crisp with a slightly sticky, substantial body. Good carbonation. A solid example of an Oktoberfest.

Perhaps the best Marzen/Oktoberfest I've had. Although I've yet to travel to Germany.

Nice light copper color. Clean and clear. About 1 1/2 inch thick white foam is rich and somewhat sticky.

Aroma is light but effective. Sweet and light caramel underneath with subtle hop and yeat spice throughout. Nothing to set your nose on an escapade, but it does the marzen job nicely.

This beer just tastes awesome. The sweetness is soft biscuit sweetbread, light caramel drizzled in. Earthy spice comes and goes, and dances with the floral spice quite well. Nice zip on the end to announce the hop pressence, but not enough to offer bitterness.

Fantastic beer.

Reminds me of a German style Ofest. Nice toasted maltiness with a spicy/herbal hop backing....medium body with a spitzier feel and dry finish. Above average but not one I would likely buy again.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall pint glass. Label says enjoy by 12/18/14.

Appearance: Pours a deep golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. About one finger of off white head which slowly settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A bready, toasty, and fairly sweet malt forward aroma with hints of caramel, biscuit, and subtle fruit. Toasted barley malt with upfront hints of biscuit, sweet caramel, toffee, grains, cracker, and yeast. Subtle fruit hints of apple and orange along with some sugar sweetness. Light hints of earthy hops. Also some hints of spice. A pretty solid malty aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma hints at, a toasty, bready, and sweet classic Marzen malt driven taste with notes of caramel, biscuit, and fruit. Upfront toasted barley malt with good notes of biscuit, caramel, toffee, toasted bread, yeast, grains, and cracker. Light fruit undertones of apple and orange. Sweet notes of sugar. Subtle spice presence with a slight note of cinnamon. Subtle earthy hop presence. A solid taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, crisp, and very smooth.

Overall: A pretty good take on a Marzen. Good bready malt flavors with a nice subtle presence of fruit and hops.

Bottle label data: ENJOY BY 12/20/14

The body is crystal clear with a deep gold hue and a one-finger thick, lasting white head. Fruity aroma, like peach and apricot with a mild, malt undertone. The taste mimics the aroma with a bit more grainy bread flavor; rather sweet. Medium mouthfeel; kind of coarse on the palate; dry finish.

A decent beer but there is a little too much overt sweetness that works its way into the overall flavor. Hop bitterness stays low-key and takes some of the sweetness out of the picture. Worth a try...

Draft at the brewery served in a heavy, dimpled Oktoberfest stein. The beer is a deep amber in color color with a nice, well retained head. Pretty much spot on for the style - rich aromas of biscuity malt with layers of autumn leaves, toasted grain, and a subtle fruity, caramel sweetness. Satisfyingly malty and flavorful but cleaning up very well to finish with a grassy noble hop flavor and snappy bitterness. I’m game for a full boot of this, anytime.
