Creemore Springs Oktoberfest – Oktoberfest / Märzen at 5.4% ABV

Creemore Springs Oktoberfest Oktoberfest / Märzen at 5.4% ABV (C$6.10 at NLC Stavanger, 625 ml, no bottle date or best before, acquired 21-Oct-2016, reviewed 5-Nov-2016)

Appearance: clear pale amber with one fat finger of fluffy white head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: caramel malt, breads, grassy noble hops, floral, earth. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-low bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, medium duration mildly bitter finish. (3/5)

A decent Märzen, if not very exciting. There are certainly hints of the Molson ownership coming through here, but they aren’t as overt as one might fear. As is so often the case, the way to make a lager palatable is to make it taste as much like an ale as possible, and this certainly accomplishes that. (14/20)
