Commercial Description

Seductively smooth, this medium-bodied amber beauty is akin to the great Oktoberfest beers of Munich. All German malts and whole flower European hops make this lager true to style.

    Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a big mug. There is a freshness date on the front label but I can not read it.

    Appearance: The body has a deep orange amber color with very good clarity. Its head has a good two finger thickness and is just off white in color. It has very good retention and hangs on well making nice slick lacing on the glass as I drink it down.

    Smell: Its nose is full off floral and spicy Pilsener like saaz hops along with some sweet bready maltiness.

    Taste/Palate: There is a good bready malty base flavor with nice sweetness and mild caramel and nutty notes. Hop flavor quickly moves in with very tasty spicy/floral and grassy flavor notes. Hop bitterness is very bright and clean on the finish and well balanced to the malt. The body has a solid medium feel with smooth yet active carbonation.

    Notes: This beer was very interesting and surprising. The malt was Octoberfest all the way but the hops were crisp snappy German Pilsner and they made for a very tasty combination.

    Decent Marzen/Festbier. Tastes bready and malty, decent balance of hops. Nice color and presentation, not much head retention though. Good and drinkable, will definately buy again.

    Poured into a pint glass it's orange amber in color. The head is about a half an inch and beige in color. Not much lacing is left on my glass. The aroma malty and sweet. Some hops can be detected but only after a good hard whiff. The flavor is malt with a hint of caramel sweetness. Hops are there but, not real strong. It has a flowery finish. The mouthfeel is medium to light. A tad watery. Lots of carbonation. Another American Marzen beer that I feel is lacking. I'm going to try to stick to European Marzens for now on if this keeps up.
