Big draft at Shagger Jacks on Oak Island. Nice dark amber color and super smooth malts. Very nice representation of the style.

22 ounce bottle poured into a tulip. Bottle was purchased at Foothills for $3

A: Pours a beautiful rich copper color with a frothy 2 finger off white head. Good lacing and great head retention.

S: Nose is strong with toffee, and nutty scents. some grassy scents as it warmed up

T: Carmel malts, with some nuttiness and hop bitterness.

M: Very crisp and extremely refreshing. Leaves a nice chewy feeling in the back of my teeth along with a slightly bitter after taste.

O: This is a damn good beer I believe its the first I've reviewed of the style, but it is one of my favorite Foothills brews so far.

Pours a a nice clear rich copper color with a nice fluffy light tan head leaves some spotty lace behind.

Aroma is toasted malts some caramel hints light earthy notes.

Taste is almost like the nose malty goodness some good earthy notes. Fairly clean upfront but has some lingering almost toffee like notes in the finish. Pretty good example of the style worth trying for sure.

Mouthfeel is nice crisp light , easy drinking.

Overall pretty good brew.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: pous a reddish brown color with a 2" head.

Smell: light caramel and a hint of earthy tones comes through to the nose.

Taste: follows the nose as caramel, dark fruits, and some mild earthy tones create a simplistic Oktoberfest.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp from start to finish. Short lasting earthy aftertaste.

Overall: super easy to drink and though not a great Oktoberfest, it hits the spot when you want one.

Eh, lets be honest. This is an OK Oktoberfest. The flavors of an Oktoberfest are there, but all slightly muted. Honestly, this reminds me of a slightly watered down Sam Adams. The rick caramel malt flavor is missing, and the mouthfeel is slightly thin.

Ok, but there are better options out there.
