Nice marzen. Very tasty

This brewery is the best! Medium to medium-high malty flavor initially, with a lightly toasty, bread dough quality and an impression of soft sweetness. Medium to medium-low bitterness, definitely malty in the balance. Well-attenuated and crisp, but not dry. Medium-low to medium floral, herbal, or spicy hop flavor. Clean lager fermentation character. The taste is mostly of Pils malt, but with slightly toasty hints.

A bitter lager. A fine beer. Not remarkable. profile - September 25, 2018
On draft at Yard House in Greenville, SC. I am not sure if it is just because I am very thirsty but this is not your typical Oktoberfest beer. Almost a fruit aroma at first with a very crisp fresh taste that is usually not my style. But this is a very tasty brew.

Not so great. More roasty than anything. Not sweet at all. Almost IPA ish there's better marzans out there profile - November 14, 2015

Skunky noble hop aroma is pretty strong. Stronger hop flavor and bitterness than I expected. Malty, medium bodied. Not one of the better festbiers I've had. Weirdly boozy finish.
