Solid beer - first taste was very sweet, but as it (and I) settled, became very enjoyable. Dark apple cider color, big head that settles quickly and taste of apple, caramel and malt.

Bottled 5/8/18, consumed 9/17/18

Pours crystal clear amber with an ok head that left little lacing.

Full, deep aroma of toasty, bready, caramel malts.

Taste has all of that with some sweet honey.

Feel is medium, smooth, great carbonation - there's just a drinkability factor that absolutely makes you want to take another sip.

Terrific all-around Oktoberfest Marzen, probably the best I've had. Could definitely drink a ton of these in a festival. Picking more up as it is.

Poured into a glass mug.
The appearance was an amber color with a finger's worth of white foamy head sliding off at a decent pace. Mild lace, somewhat messy.
The aroma had caramel/toffee malts playing with some biscuity/white bready notes. Some deep grassy and earthy notes pluck at the malts and push at malty backbone.
The flavor takes the prior mentioned aromas to slyly meld together and end up dominating the aftertaste with some honey-ed nuts.
The mouthfeel was almost medium bodied, seemed just a touch under and had a great sessionability about it. Carbonation felt good. ABV felt on par. Mild nutty to toasty and caramel finish.
Overall, very nicely done Oktoberfest I would have again.

Amber color. Smells like malt, bread, and mint. Tastes very clean and crisp but don't get much of the nose, which is a little disappointing but not terrible by any means. Some of the nose does come out in the after taste with a slight taste of caramel as well. It says on the bottle that it is fully bodied, but I think it is medium with light carbonation. Overall this is a very refreshing brew and I would definitely drink it again.

Exception Oktoberfest beer. The best in my opinion.
Pours a clear copper color with exceptional head retention. Off white head
Herbal and caramel aromas
Bitterness is restrained, yet detectable
Toasty bready tastes
Malt forward, medium sweetness
Outstanding drinkable beer for Oktoberfest. Would give it all 5's except nothings perfect!
