Good representation of the style. Deep orange amber in color. Bready, sweet malt in the nose. Typical flavor profile for style, with very little hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is a bit thin for my concept of the style. Overall a perfectly acceptable Märzen/Octoberfest.

I had this beer on-tap in a pint glass at the Hillside in Seattle.

Appearance: rich orange hue with just a dash of haze. Head is a finger of ivory foam. I like it.

Smell: mild but well-composed with nice toasty and caramelly notes.

Taste: sweet and caramelly with a nice toastiness. There's a little bit of a biscuity aftertaste but other than that quite good.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body but with a big, smooth creaminess that I really dig.

Overall: a pretty decent Oktoberfest, if a little biscuity for me.

Another brew that I was just going to add has a "Had", but it wasn't listed. I took no notes, so here goes. It seemed pretty typical, with a golden color, a mildly sweet grain scent & taste, smooth body, easy drinkability, and a solid overall presence. I'll try to have it again and do a proper review.
