A pretty beer with huge fluffy head and tons of constantly rising bubbles. Aroma has some malt but also an unexpected caramel note that detracts. Sweet caramel and butterscotch overpower other flavors. Thinnish body and creamy carbonation. Dry, minerally, almost metallic finish. Overall, a pleasant, drinkable beer, but it bears as much resemblance to a dry English pale ale as it does to an Oktoberfest.

This is a good marzen. Good balanced malt flavor.tons of mineralty from the spring water. Almost to much. I would really like to try a saison or a Irish stout from Indian wells.
