From notes 09/30/10, on tap at Dancing Bear Pub

A- Copper, little to no head, mild bubbling.

S- Faint brown sugar, nutty, bready, malt.

T/M- Malty, bready, light/medium bodied, watery.

D- Disappointing. Live Oak usually has great offerings, this was thin and watery with not much going for it. Sadness.

On tap at the Addison Flying Saucer.

The beer pours a reddish-amber color with a white head. The aroma is classic Marzen. I get a whole lot of toffee and bread as well as some grapes - which I get in almost every German lager. The flavor is more of the same with a ton of malt. This is a malt bomb of a beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Another very nice beer from Live Oak.

Poured into a pint glass Orange with a thin white head. Good lacing all the way down.

I was in a bar, so my already weak nose can't give a review of this.

The taste was full of malts with a nice orange spice. The end of the palatte had a nice hop bitterness to finish.

The body was very full for the style which was a nice bonus.

Best Octoberfest I have ever had (probably due to freshness). It had about a half inch head that lingered for 5 minutes or. (I took my time) I have never seen a head like that on a lager style beer. Fairly strong okfest, ABV wise... I would guess %6-7.

There was a lot going on flavor wise. As the beer warmed a little, the flavor of apples an other fruits became more prominant... Live Oak has got to start bottling!

Poured into a pint glass. Looks great, good aroma. Seems like it would have more taste in the spices, but has a basic characteristic taste with a quick finish. Also tastes slightly soapy from the keg. Stop ordering that.
