I don't have a fancy beer palate and I am not generally a beer lover but I love this beer. It's has a clean, non-bitter but full-bodied, mildly sweet flavor with a good kick at 7.7% alcohol for 12 oz. One beer is all I need to relax and chill out after a hard day's work. It's seasonal so I'm really sad that I'll have to wait until next Autumn to get this again. I'd love any recommendations of something similar.

12oz bottle, Fresh By 12.31.18 stamped on the label, poured into a 14oz snifter glass.

The beer pours a medium amber color, dark copper hues, fairly clear with a fizzy bone colored head, hardly half a finger tall that has no retention and yields no lacing. The aroma is pleasant, strong caramel and amber malts, a bit nutty with light spice, a touch of oak and some piney hop. The flavors echo the nose, strong amber malts, light oak, a bit of piney and earthy noble hop character with some spice and nuttiness. The mouthfeel is fine, coating and lively medium body, nice crisp and bubbly texture with an easy but dry finish, a bit weak though.

Verdict: A decent enough Märzen from Two Brothers. Balanced, hearty and crisp, good for the Autumn season.

Very good Oktoberfest brew to kick off the autumn! Poured into a 12oz chilled glass. Deep copper with minimal head which dissipated quickly. Mouth feel full and malty! Notes of brown sugar and cinnamon at the end. Will have again if available.

Not too strong for barrel aged, slightly sweet, full and rich. Really nice finish. Zero bitterness.

Pours a clear copper color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Decent retention and slight lacing. Smells of sweet malt, caramel malt, slight pale malt, slight yeast, and a hint of hop. Fits the style of a Marzen / Oktoberfest. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, caramel malt, slight pale malt, slight yeast, hint of wood, hint of alcohol, and a hint of hop. Overall, weak appearance, but good feel, body, and blend.
