Brooklyn "Oktoberfest"
Märzen (ABV 5.5%)

[Best served in a Lager glass]

Rating: 3.4/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a medium brown with a slight yellow hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) frothy off-white head that lasted about half way through and had fair lacing.

The aroma was of a moderate toasted bread malt, a mild floral hop and an earthy yeast with a nice note of caramel, a little nuttiness and a mild alcohol scent.

The taste was ever so lightly bitter and a little acidic with a hint of caramel from the onset, then became very malty and a tad sweet with a touch of alcohol at the end. The flavor lasted an average amount of time after the swallow allowing for the bitter and the malts to blend nicely.

Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and slightly dry in texture with a medium carbonation.

Overall the maltiness and mild sweetness of this brew is what made this Oktoberfest stand out. A definite asset to the style.
