Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a bronze color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is strong of dark breads. Taste is bready malts, little else, a bit mild but very refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer that I could easily crush several of.

L: Pours a copper hue with less than a finger of white bubbly head which recedes quickly. Very little lacing.

S: Caramel, nuts.

T: Follows nose. Real smooth.

F: Moderate carbonation, medium body.

O: Probably my favorite after Ayinger. Such a great style for this time of year.

DATE: October 14, 2017... OCCASION: soccer Saturday in the books, yard work finished... time to officially welcome in fall... GLASSWARE: Orioles mug... pours a solid amber orange body with large, clumpy bubbles that rush hastily upward... the off-white head thins to an dirty, uneven snow cap... the aroma is a mellow, slightly roasted malt with equally soft, sweet caramel... the Hallertau is not too prominent in the mix either, leaving the overall experience insinuating a drinkable, accessible lager... first sip is fresh, medium-bodied, sweet and swift... at 5.8% ABV, not at all thin nor aggressive--a prefect companion for various fare... the throat senses a lingering toasted caramel, sharp and rewarding... besides the aforementioned caramel and sharp ping of hops, light honey, lemon grass, and dank, earthy malts make for a more complex sip than expected... among the giants of marzens, this one holds its own, with a balance and flavor that invites sip after sip while sneakily bringing its alcohol upon you... somewhere in the mix to be crowned the first in fest, but not sure it meets the heights of some more aggressive or interesting marzens...

12oz bottle poured into a pint

A- pours a clear deep copper color with a one-finger creamy white head that has decent retention

S- sweet and malty aroma with notes of bread crust, caramel, forrest floor, floral hops

T- malty and full flavored, toasted brown bread, sweet caramel, a bit nutty. The finish is slightly floral and lingers of more toasted bread and sweet malt

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a creamy crisp finish

O- one of my favorite oktoberfests, full flavored and super drinkable
