I’m assuming that the designation of Marzen/Oktoberfest is simply a mistake, and that this is what it appears to be, purely and simply a macro adjunct lager? (If it looks like a duck…). If not, please enlighten me.
<EDIT: 03/10/05 – Jason changed it to Adjunct – cheers>
The context that I drank this in says it all. I enjoyed it with a lunchtime, Mexican meal and it was served to me as probably the coldest beer I have ever come across, in a super-frosted mug. In that context it was fine.
Very little expected and very little required. Cold, refeshing with a lack of skunk and a clean aftertaste is all I expect and ask. This just about covered those bases so I was happy. Of course, you could probably spend less for the same non-experience, but I’m not complaining.
In the right context (lawnmower/100 degree heat/hot spicy food) this does what it is supposed to and nothing more. In that context it is very drinkable.
