Nice rep for the style. Color was a nice golden/red. The head presented itself nicely, about a half of inch but then dissipated quickly. I'm usually looking for a little more malty finish in an Oktoberfest, it was briefly there but not as pronounced as I look for in this style. Overall this is a very drinkable offering from an outstanding brewery. If you get a chance to pick up a sixpack or better yet, if you get a chance to have this on tap– I wouldn't pass it by. It'll be well worth the cost.

12oz from the 2013 release.

A: Pours a clear mellow brass with a nice off-white head.

S: Dryish caramel, toasted grain, lightly yeasty, hint of hop note.

T: Nutty, caramelized grain, light biscuity sweetness, a bit of crisp hop bitterness, bready finish.

M: Light-bodied with active carbonation.

O: A nicely balanced marzen, not overly sweet or hoppy like many American versions.
