Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into my Bruery tulip. Picked up a 6 pack of this at Food Emporium for $11 today.

a - Pours a somewhat transparent orange-amber color with moderate carbonation evident and one finger of fluffy white head. Head leaves a little bit of lacing on the glass.

s - Smells of toasted malts, burnt malts, bready malts, and some light sweet fruity malts. Not a ton going on here but not bad.

t - tastes of fruity malts, apples, toasted malts, bready malts, biscuit, grains, and burnt malts. More fruit than the nose and a little bit sweeter. A step up from the nose for me.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall an above average marzen, though nothing crazy. Nice sweet fruits in the taste and easy to drink. Worth checking out if you see it and are looking for a marzen, but nothing to seek out.

A - light, transparent amber with a big, soft, frothy, white head that has decent retention

S - caramel, a bit sweet, a little sugary

T - caramel, a bit bitter, a little sweet, faintly toasty

M - medium bodied, well carbonated, a bit crisp

This is a nice, drinkable version of an Oktoberfest. It has nice flavor and a solid body. It's worth a try if you're looking for a good Oktoberfest beer.

12 oz bottle.

First had two one the beach, having one now pouted into a glass.

A - copper, very clear beer. the look leaves a little to want.

S - I can't really derive much of a smell at all from this. some malt sweetness, disappointing. had to pour another one extra head to prove to myself the lack of smell.

T - Drinkable. Not my favorite word to describe a beer, but it is what it is. First taste is very clear, smooth, and that Munich malt sweetness, a little stronger than I would like in an Oktoberfest beer. Some soft nuttiness is in the middle of the beer, giving it a nice flavor not to it, balancing the sweetness some. Finishes with tiny, barely noticeable taste of hops.

Mouth - clear, smooth, very drinkable

O - Good beach beer! Thats about all I can say for it, drinks fast and easy, just disappoints me. I was in Germany for 2 months this summer, and in Munich for the end of it, and I just compare all Oktoberfest beers and the like to the Dunkels there, and it just is too light and too sweet in comparison.

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Pours clear orange copper color with a finger of sticky foam that coats the glass. Aroma is malty, Munich malt, spicy sweetness, and a kiss of earthy hops.

First sip is very clean, with a basic munich malt sweetness and smooth finish. Hops are minimal. This is a nice, malty session beer with great drinkability. Crisp, clean, flavorful, but not overly complex.

A solid Oktoberfest. Nothing Earth-shattering here, but a clean tasting flavorful beer. Would get again.

One of the best American Oktoberfests!

Pours a nice rich amber color with a long-lasting off-white head with some nice lacing.

Beautiful aromatic nose of malts and caramel.

Just a wonderful tasting marzen with a balance of mild hops and delightful sweetness.

Gets even better when it when it warms to room temperature.

I bought two six packs at Publix and I am really savoring them!

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.

O- pretty good brew overall, great aroma
