Aroma is strong and malty with fruity and earthy underpinnings. Pours a clear, orangy amber with a fairly thick pale wheat head that leaves generous lacing. Lip-smacking flavor has a malty core and firm tones of cloves, fruit and honey. Smooth texture has average body and fizz. Happy Autumnal Equinox - in the northern hemisphere, anyway.

Poured from a 341ml. bottle, bottled August 19 (lot code 2312).

Appearance: Pours a peachy gold, an easy 3 finger head that slowly recedes and leaves a good wreath of lacing.

Smell: Sweet spices, brown sugar, earthy a bit, quite malty.

Taste: Malty though there is some earthy, mineral bitterness. Some nutmeg as well as a good dose of spices that are just right.

Mouthfeel: Obviously more on the malty side yet there is a slight bitter edge. Real well balanced and pleasant.

Overall: A very flavorful Oktoberfest. Grab some while there's still some left.

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a small snifter. White, fluffy head on a clear coppery body. Lacing lines the glass, clear and soapy. Aroma is crisp, light caramel sweetness, fresh hop bitterness, classic pilsner notes. Taste has mild sweetness, mild bitterness, pilsner yeastiness. Not too complex, very smooth and easy to drink. Not one complaint whatsoever.

Just a really average beer. I love Marzen/Octoberfest, but this one is just blah. I bought a variety pack and this one was disappointing. The flavor hits early and fades late, which seems like a trend from this brewery. I would drink it if it was free, but I doubt I'll pay for it again.
