Bottle courtesy of Reagan1984. Served in a Struise cervoise.

A - A finger of white foam settles to a thin cap and thicker collar, leaving negligible lacework. Transparent dark orange-brown body.

S - Slightly buttery biscuits, toasted malts, some fruity notes that come out as the beer warms up. Clean lager taste, and on point for the style.

T - Taste is better, with stronger malt, biscuit, and toffee flavors, mingling with fruity notes and a bit of hop character in the finish. A nice solid Oktoberfest.

M - Smooth texture, lightly sticky medium body, medium-low carbonation, and no obvious alcohol. Pretty much what I want from this style.

D - One of the better offerings I've had from Berkshire, and competitive with the better local Oktoberfests I've had. Still, it'd be hard to pick out of a lineup.

From 10/31/11 notes. Shared a bottle of this with my girlfriend, poured from a 22 oz. bottle into my Bell's tulip.

a - Pours a hazy amber-orange color with one and a half fingers of off white head and moderate carbonation evident. Some nice head retention and light lacing left on the glass, looks great.

s - Smells of bready malts, toasted malts, caramel malts, light spice, and light fruity. Heavy on the malts but very nice.

t - Tastes of toasted malts, caramel malts, bready malts, roasted malts, light spices, and a hint of fruit. Again, very malty and enjoyable.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation, smooth and creamy and pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall I thought this was a very good lager and a really enjoyable marzen. Lots of malts and could have drank the whoel bomber by myself. Would certainly have it again.
