Point - Oktoberfest Marzen Style; Cascade Pale Ale

The Stevens Point Brewery is in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. 

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.
