Aroma is very malt fruity. Flavor at first is pretty good with some toffee, toasted malt, but then gives way to sweet malts that linger through the finish. Wish they would've reversed that - a bit sweet up front and a nice slightly toasty finish. Oh well.

Amber appearance, sweet malt toast smell. Taste was mildly sweet, not at all bitter, hefty or intrusive. Shit to pound in fall. Nutty caramel real mildly done. Toffee. Free flowing, not viscous.

Pours a nice, soapy, off-white head that has surprising persistence that laces a bit. Soft, spicy hops in the nose. Clear, copper color. Starts with a nice, spicy hoppiness. Spiciness rises just as a wall of smooth, smooth malt comes through on top of that. There's a caramelness to the malt (which I usually don't like, but it works well here). Slight lingering hop bitterness of spice lingers into the finish on top of malt.

I really, really like this one. I think it may be my favorite Oktoberfest; great, spicy hoppiness, excellent maltiness, and a crisp mouthfeel.

Pours a wonderful auburn colour. A slow pour at first and a aggressive pour toward the end produced a thick white head that quickly turned to a thin lacing after about a minute....

Smells like dry straw... not pleased :(

Tastes of vanilla, white bread, and slight of butter.

Has a medium body about it... and a good silky mouth feel to it lack of better terminology , Its like buttery caramel goodness! not the best oktoberfest bier ever, but a refreshing switch up that I am not overly displeased with.... side from a prevalent smell.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a chalice.

Appearance: Pours a deep and hazy amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid finger of off white head that settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A bready and fairly sweet malt forward aroma with a scent of caramel, grains, and biscuit. Barley malt with bready hints of grains, biscuit, caramel, cracker, and lager yeast. Subtle hints of earthy hops. A solid malty aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a bready and sweet malt driven taste with notes of biscuit, caramel, and grains. Upfront presence of toasted barley malt with notes of biscuit, grains, caramel, cracker, and lager yeast. Light background notes of earthy hops. A pretty decent lager taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, crisp, and pretty smooth.

Overall: A solid take on a Marzen. Nice sweet caramel malt notes.
