I bought a can of this off the single shelf at Binnys. It poured a clear copper with thin white head that left some lace. The taste was nicely balanced with hop finish. The Mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a decent beer.

Pours an effervescent copper with 3 fingers of beige colored head. Above average head retention & good lacing

S: Faint breadyness, some herbal notes

T: Toastyness, a little herbal hoppyness & dryness up front. Some caramel mixes with toastyness, a little woody bitterness to balance it. Finishes toasty, sweet & dry

MF: Medium body, form carbonation, super balance

A damn fine Marzen, already in my top 10 for the style

Amber with good clarity, a finger of foam, and some sudsy lacing left behind.
Aroma is soft and lightly estery with some apple notes and toasty bread crust maltiness.
Light bitterness, clean malt sweetness, dry and toasty in the finish with a lingering apple butter fruitiness.
Smooth and light bodied, supple carbonation, easy drinking.
Overall a great Oktoberfest, clean and well made. The sixer didn't last 24 hours.

This beer comes out with a very pretty amber appearance and a 1" head. It is served in a pint glass, but I was lucky enough to bring my litre mug to the Oktoberfest party.

The initial flavor is full with a hint of sweet. The marzen flavor is enough to be appreciated. There is no bitter after taste.

This beer has a good nose, a solid taste throughout the whole pint, and a full finish. The color is always impressive as with most Oktoberfest style beers.

I love this beer, and I make sure to order at least one every time I visit.

Wiseacre Oktoberfest has a thick, creamy, bone-colored head, a hazy, bubbly, amber appearance, with powdery sediment, throughout, and some splotchy lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of sweet bread crust-type malt, and the flavor is of sweet, somewhat syrupy, bready malts, with balancing and noticeable hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and Wiseacre Oktoberfest finishes crisp and very clean.

Bomber poured into a pint glass.

Pours a very deep copper/amber color. Head retains very well after pour, with an excellent amount of lacing.

Smell Is enticing. Good caramel malt smell with a hint of some spice and earthiness.

Taste begins with a sweet caramel flavor which subsides fairly quickly into a nice almost sweet earthiness with a small amount of noble hop flavor. A nice bitter hop flash on the finish mixes well with the sweet caramel that lingers from the start. The finish is clean and leaves you wanting some more.

Full mouthfeel, but not too heavy.

Another great offering from the local guys at Wiseacre.
