    Pretty decent Octoberfest - off the tap at Jacob Wirth in Boston. Appearance is medium brow to mahagony with an ample head and great lacing. Sweet carame, but lightly so to the nose and pallette - and maybe a bit of toffee... and biscuit - nice.

    Although I can't say that I've ever been a huge fan of the style, I can honestly say that Märzen would be one of my more preferred Lager-styles -- only due to the fact that the really well-made ones have a fair amount of attitude and girth to work with.

    The same can be said for this particular beer from PA. While the appearence isn't anything awe-inspiring (I like the lacing though), it's the aroma and the flavor profile that takes this beer to the next level. One whiff of the aroma, for example, and I suddenly feel like I'm a German bier garten on a lazy Spring afternoon, lazily killing time, while my lovely fraulein/wife is busy cooking up some brats.... :)

    Anyway, falling back to here-and-now, the flavor profile also does not disappoint. The rather ungainly malt profile is decidely different from the ussual lot of Pale Ales, IPA's, and Belgian beers that make up most of my diet, but that isn't to say that doesn't work. Far from it. In fact, I would say that this is one of best Märzens I've ever had, honestly.

    Not really a light and easy drinking/thirst-quenching Lager in the truest sense of the term IMO, but a worthwhile "mid-level" beer -- after the light thirst-busters straight after work, and before the truly sturdy and heavy-handed bad-boys later on in the evening. Recommended.

    Poured a copper color with a small off white head that quickly diminished leaving no lacing on the glass. Sweet caramel malt, and dry, straw, toasted aroma. Initial malty sweetness, with a light, lingering, hop bitterness. Rather dry finish.

    Not being a lager fan I find this lager much better than the rest of those bland styles. It has good body and mouthfeel and has a good hop taste that other lagers do not.

    A nice pleasantly slightly sweet and fresh tasting lager (with all other qualities being those of a standard lager). Definitely three steps above your standard American crap – I would compare it to Sam Smith’s pure brewed lager.
