This 4.9% ABV marzen-style Oktoberfest beer is from the Stevens Point Brewery in Stevens Point, Wisconsin.
The beer pours a deep amber and copper
in color. There is a half-inch of off-white head. The aroma is tangy
and malty, sweet potato and caramel. The taste follows the aromas,
mostly malty, toffee and caramel, with a bit of fruity plum. The beer
drinks easy, smooth, with tingling carbonation. This isn't great, but
it's a decent easy-drinking Oktoberfest.
Based on my notes from 2010, this beer has improved (and the label has changed greatly): 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.
