I prefer the pale Marzen, but this is a great example of the amber Marzen.

Clear gold orange color,medium but very present carbonation. Smell is uncooked yeasty dough and some sweet malt. Taste is identical with just a small hop taste that's overshadowed mostly by the sweet bread taste. Really good,kept taking taste after taste to find fault but it was very enjoyable

This beer pours a crystal clear golden amber color with a huge, creamy yet dense, off white head. Retention is fantastic and there is a moderate amount of spotted lacing left on the glass.

Smell is toasted bread crust, doughy biscuits, grassy and spicy hops and just a touch of sweetness.

Taste is very similar, but the sweetness is a bit more pronounced and covers up and hop flavors until a touch of grassiness appears on the finish.

Feel is light side of medium and very smooth. The carbonation prickles just a bit on the finish.

Overall a very very good beer. Easy drinking and a great example of the style. I wish there was a touch less sweetness in the taste, but it is nowhere near as sweet as some of the American examples of the style.

A: Nice clear amber body. Two fingers worth of head that quickly disapeared. Carbonation bubbles stuck around during the drinking.

S: The grain and malts stand out on these styles of beers. Getting a biscuit like sweetness from the beer. Reminds me of local Oktoberfests I have been to.

T: Really good Oktoberfest beer. The maltiness comes out well. Picking up some sweet flavors that balance out the malt nice.

M: Light crisp beer. Sweet flavors mix well with everything.

O: One of the best versions of this style I have had, and a beer that I look for every year around this time.

Had at BJ's Oktoberfest dinner 2017 so took no notes. I enjoyed it though.
