A: A rustic autumn orange pour is a translucent amber in the vessel accompanied by a bready-frothy light tan head of 1 finge statue. Light to medium rise of effervesce with a modest lacing that was spongy and speckled in coverage. Nice amber color, modest head and a strong carbonation with some lacing earns a tick above average here.

S: Toasty caramel, some nobel green hops of light intentions. nothing much else here.

T: Flavor was a bit of sour caramel twang, metallic and tinny with some moldy hops. Flavor seems a bit off, toasted but very tinny.

M: Highly carbonated soda syrup, a bit of sour twang on the tongue, tinny some caramel greenery.

O: Overall flavor was disjustice to style, a return to the old ways of pyramid, cannot recommend and not impressed. Off flavor, tinny sour stingent malt and a pass/drain pour before middrink.

First brew from Pyramid, seems to finally have invaded MA.

A- Pint glass pour with a ruby red body and a light tan head. Retention is good but it all falls dramatically to a small ring and very thin cloud. Just a few spots of lace on the glass.

S- A simple mix of buttery caramel malts, nutty hints and some dark fruit. Takes a lot of effort to pick up.

T- A nutty, spiced raisin presence fills the palate with some of the aforementioned caramel and buttery hints. Some Euro hops, a bit spicy and herbal/floral.

MF- Right in the middle of watery and creamy, the body is of light-moderate thickness. Carbonation level is moderate and there is a decent bitterness.

Average Marzen.

12oz bottle poured into tulip

Pours a slightly hazed caramel color with some beige head resting on top. Spotty lacing dots the glass while drinking.

Earthy, leafy hops in the nose with some toasted bread crust. Malty and slightly sweet with some caramel.

Light leafy hoppiness up front washed away by a wave of roasted malts. Bread crust, biscuit and caramel with soft sweetness. A hint of pumpkin and spice. Finishes with malty sweetness.

Lighter medium body, decent carbonation, bubbly and crisp on the palate. This is a great example of a completely average Oktoberfest.

Poured into a perfect pint at 42 degrees.

Appearance: A two finger head that is frothy and creamy. The head is off white and left a little lacing on the glass. The head has really good retention. The color of the beer is medium dark copper color with amber hues. The clarity of the beer is close to opaque; however, some carbonation bubble are visible.

Nose: A rich roasted malt and toasted malt aromas with some yeast. The hops is a bit fruity with some citrus notes.

Taste: Medium roasted malt with toasted flavors. Some bread and yeast notes. The hops is fruity and has some citrus and floral notes.

Mouth feel of the beer is carbonated, slightly astringent, and creamy.

Overall: The beer is a descent example of Oktoberfest. I would have like to seen a deeper malt character. The hops in the beer is a tad too strong for a rich creamy and smooth finish.
