cue the usual AB hate on the Golden Road fb page when they announced it. Because you know the evil "bean counters" will demand rice and a bunch of GMO cost-cutting measures.

I'm far from a connoisseur of the style but I enjoyed the Left Hand Oktoberfest 6 pack I picked up last week. Just a touch less roasty and it would've been even better.
Not sure if they distribute outside of Colorado but I tried Prost's Marzen on tap over the weekend. It was perfect for what I like! As mentioned a lot, many examples are overly malty and sweet. This was perfectly balanced. Considering they specialize in making excellent German beers, I shouldn't be surprised. I still have yet to try Sierra's version.
Because what I mean is 'that's really the target all the grading teams should aspire to'. Not sure what exactly is eyeroll worthy about that.That's really the target all the grading teams should aspire to.
How about just a "Thanks graders, ADs, and EDs!"?
As a grader, it becomes quite old to hear time and time again that graders need to do "x" or "y". It is a very thankless job, all the while listening to the peanut gallery about how and when it should be done. Meanwhile, I chugged away at another exam on my lunch hour... hence the eye roll.
Yuengling Lager tastes decent, while DB Vienna is fricking delicious.
A few thoughts:
I'm a sucker for Capital Autumnal Fire, which is sort of like a big malty cross between an Oktoberfest and a doppelbock.
Here's another one for you..... Gordon Biersch. Yes, the big chain. Talk about fantastic German lagers, man...... I'll have a beer with you there anytime.
Udubdawg, sounds like you need to brew smaller batches.
OP, dump it and be done with it. Nothing wrong with dumping beer as long as you learned something from it, which it seems you have. I dumped a whole keg of oatmeal stout last winter...that was sad. Pitched some bad yeast, I think. It had a whiskey-like flavor in it, but there was no whiskey added and it fermented at 64. I can only think the yeast was bad or it picked up some kind of infection. That was very disappointing.
"low and slow is the way to go"
Wait... my mead got judged by a Grand Master BJCP judge. That feedback was really good - if brief. Not much chance to get a Grand Master touching anything I submit regionally or at other comps. The ability to get a beer in front of really experienced palettes is part of the motivation.I guess I hadn't thought of that.
