Oktoberfest Marzen - Pours a pure light copper color with a creamy head. The aroma is malty and sweet. The beer is very malty, in a dark, slightly rancid, rye bread type of way. It is very dry in the finish. There are some beers whose maltiness I find unappealing, and this is one of them.
Cascade Pale Ale - This beer pours a light copper in color with a half-inch of just off white creamy, foamy head. The aroma is somewhat hoppy, a bit of pine, fruity, and a sligthly spicy maltiness like rye bread. There is bit of tea as well. The taste is malty, slightly sweet, more rye bread than fruit, with a dry and ever so slightly bitter finish.
