look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Light coppery hue yielded a relatively thin bubbly head.

The nose is straight iced tea. I've read that some malts give a tea leaf scent but this actually smelled like brewed tea. One dimensional but very pleasant.

The taste is malt forward, as is normal for the style. The barley comes out along with a nice roasted flavor.

The feel is watery and thin but refreshing. This Oktoberfest is amongst the weaker ones I've tried but all in all its still rather tasty.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Lightly hazy amber ale with lackluster head formation. Retained a thick ring.

Has a grainy aroma with pomme fruit esters and German-style malt contributions. Noble hops are smaller than per usual.

Somewhat sweet with apple-y grain must, caramel malt, toast, wheat bread, and bitter earthy hops. Touch of char is quite unique. Good flavors.

Decent mouthfeel. Carbonation is dialed-up, perhaps; washes out the weight of the body, which seems thin.

Sturdy beer that's a tad sweet, but I like the assertion.

on tap at the industry - served in pint

Deep copper-auburn pour with a frothy topping of beige head. Notes of spicy hops, caramel sweetness, toasted bread and earth in the nose. Malty and flavorful on the tongue, coupled with soft leafy hoppiness. A touch sweet with caramel and bread crust, earthy and light bite of hops on the back end. Medium body, nicely carbonated, crisp and refreshing on the tongue.

Perhaps not the most explosive or exquisite version of the Marzen, but drinkable, refreshing and clean on the palate. I had a couple of these during Happy Hour and would gladly order it again during the Fall.
