Appearance: A reddish brown copper hue. A nice two finger head that seemed creamy had a little bit of retention and some lacing.
Nose: Roasted malt, caramel, molasses hints of musty earth, citrus and hops
Taste: Roasted malt, laced with caramel, molasses hints of earth citrus, and hops.
Overall I bought this beer in September one of first shipments to Idaho. I have heard the that year I heard that it was a good American version of the Oktoberfest. When I tried it I was surprised that it had a very nice malt character with most of the bells and whistle a traditional Marzen had. I enjoy this beer. Wll drink again.
