4.21/5 rDev +7.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Pours a crystal clear amber color with a thin, off-white head that hangs around for the duration of the drink. Light, lazy carbonation slowly chugs its way upwards while trace lacing streaks downwards.
Super malty. Rich caramel notes hide a light wheat and grass characters. A minimal amount of spicing but I can't put my finger on it. Very sweet with a cirtus tang.
Follows the aroma quite nicely. Sweet, lightly roasted caramel malts hits right up front. Light grassy bitterness on the tail end. Pleasant aftertaste.
Medium bodied light carbonated. Finish is wierd; it's sweet and somehow a bit dry. Crisp and easy to drink.
A fantastic Oktoberfest brewed right here in Iowa! Definitely worth seeking out, although that might prove challenging as this is a small brewery we're talking about.

3.48/5 rDev -11.5%

Clear, dark amber color with a dense head that had good retention before settling to a thick cap. Moderate amount of lacing is left down the glass. Attractive looking beer.
Smells grainy and grassy. The German malt seems to be of the lightly toasted, sweet variety. The grassy hops do not assert themselves very much.
Does have a sweeter flavor. Slight DMS. Lightly toasted malt adds some interest. Very unassertive hop bitterness in the finish with lightly grassy flavor.
Feels like a smaller lager but the carbonation seems off. Gives this beer a thin, watery feel. Not terrible but would like a more creamy texture.
A good effort. By no means one of the better American Oktoberfest beers. Worth a try and would drink this again.
