I've been on an O-fest kick and this is one of the better of them.
Look is an orangish amber with a head that reduced fairly quick to a ring.
Smells like an O-fest sweet malts and some spice.
Taste is really good earthy and sweet with just enough hops to keep it from being too malty.
Feel is nicely carbonated and smooth.
Drink I could spend all day at the fest drinking this. Darn good beer.

A: Pours an attractive copper color with a frothy two fingers of white head. Head recedes pretty quickly leaving behind a ring around the edge of the glass and some lacing.

S: Sweet and toasted malts with earthy undertones.

T: Same sweet, toasted malts from the nose. Earthy, spices that my palate are trained enough to indentify. Has a tea like flavor that I really like.

M: Pretty full mouthfeel with almost fizzy carbonation.

O: This is a very enjoyable beer and in my limited experience with marzens(and German lagers in general)this stands out as one of my favorites.

A- foamy white head with medium lacing. Amber/Honey gold

S- clean, malty, only slightly bready

T- biscuity, toasted malts, easy to drink, not as strong of a bread taste as I would've expected

M- balanced, smooth, lighter than expected

O- Never really got into october fest - marzen beers, so I went down to the local craft beer store for a marzen tasting and was pleasantly surprised. I expected this beer to be heavy, yeasty, very breadlike and it wasn't. I found it to be easy to drink and pleasant. I definitely will start drinking more beers like this.
