Comments:  The Milton, MA brewery celebrates Oktoberfest with their take on the traditional Bavarian Märzen.  The beer pours out a gorgeous amber with some cloudiness.  The aroma is bready with some sweet hints of maple syrup, and that yeasty, sweet bread comes through in the flavor as well.  The beer leaves behind a thin lace.  I think it would do Munich proud.

Comments: This mysterious beer (can’t find any evidence of it on the ‘net) is golden and bubbly with a thick head.  True to its style, I find it has a musty aroma with a real earthy flavor with hints of chocolate.   The aftertaste is a bit bitter but it’s well-balanced.  Another good brew from some Boston-area beermakers.

For an alternate take here’s a review from the Boston Globe.
