11.2oz bottle bb April 2018 poured into a.5L krug at fridge temp 5.8% ABV. The beer pours bright amber in color just a little on the light side for a Marzen. The head is light khaki in color, persistent, and leaves some lacing. The aroma is semisweet bread with a little nutty/earthy quality. The taste starts a little sweet and bready, then finishes dry with a decent hop punch. Mouthfeel thin to medium bodied, adequately carbonated, with a pleasantly bitter dry finish. Overall, very good. This is a podium beer among marzens, but not first place.

Poured from the bottle into a medium glass. Spiced well, but clearly meant for drinking several at a time, while still being enjoyable. Not a particularly overpowering or lingering flavor.

Looks a lot like iced tea in a glass with its brown color and virtually no head. Crisp and dry mouthfeel. Malty at first, but then some earthy hops sneak in at the end. All in all, a bit weak, but not bad.

This pours an amber hue with a very nice head and lacing. The aroma brings out really nice hints of caramel malt and bread. The flavor has just a hint of caramel while the bread is more assertive. There is a tiny bit of bitterness in the finish but for the most part it is very smooth. Overall this is a very impressive Oktoberfest beer.

Pours a clear reddish coppery color with off-white head. Caramel, dark malts, bread, and some sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with more caramel and bread notes. Nice example of a marzen.
