look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours with one finger of white foam on top of a clear, copper colored body. The foam settles fairly quickly and leaves only light lace.

S - Lightly Bready malt with some toasted notes and herbal hops.

T - Thick, rich bread notes up front with a touch of toffee. More soft, toasty malt in the middle with a finish of sweet bread and light, herbal hops.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a balanced finish.

D - Quite nice, it has a pleasant malt character and just enough hop presence to balance things out. Very drinkable and well made, if a little bit too sweet.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass- pours a very clear, yellow/orange color, a finger and a half of beige head that dissipates quickly, leaving no lacing. Visibly effervescent.

Smell to me is distinctly "cidery"; definitely get the whole german malt business but it's only equal to the cider scent. A little yeast in the mix.

Taste is better than the smell- tastes somewhat like an oktoberfest but is definitely not rich in enough. Still has a bit of the cider quality, but mostly very light grains, missing the caramel smoothness.

Mouthfeel is also not what I'm used to- light body, moderately sparkly carbonation. This is not one I'd get again.

12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a crystal clear, golden-amber body with a small, near white head.

Smell: Mild bready malt scent, a little foraged apple with some sweetish hints to it. That's about it.

Taste: Modestly bready malts given a pinch of powdered sugar. Cidery apple hints. Very faintly spicy hops, near nil bitterness. Folds back in the sweetness until the near crisp, quick finish. Sadly, this one totally lacks complexity, even for a simple, little O-fest.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-plus carbonation. Feels a little soda pop-like at times.

Overall: It's not nice to point fingers. It's also not nice to Blue Point Oktoberfest.

I forgot i had this one pushed back in the fridge. The body is a nice amber color body with no head but a little bit of lace. The smell is of malt with some carmel sweetness coming through. The taste is sweet with some malt taste, nothing special. The mouth feel is good and overall this is a average marzen to my taste.
