Well, I have to say that this is a very nice American interpretation of the famous German-style beer. Here goes:

A: Not as much carbonation as other beers of the style. Also only a very light orange. While it has a good head, there's practically no lacing.

S: Very light, but does contain sweet caramel and wheat-based malt. It's an incredibly simple beer, just going by the nose.

T: Very sweet. Wheat malt complimented by a very sweet caramel malt. Contains some hops, but the malt is what predominates.

M: Nice and thick. Would've liked more carbonation considering the style, but the beer's still good.

O: Nice, but there are better interpretations of the famous German style of beer.

Had this on tap at the Mellow Mushroom in Louisville, my third rating of an Upland brew to kick-off Oktoberfest (which is really just a week in September where I drink Oktoberfests all week). I liked the color, less orange more amber than many Oktoberfests. There was a fairly strong bready flavor, some slight maple in there as well. Medium body, average carbonation. Almost a liiitttle bit syrupy on the mouthfeel. Overall above average for the genre.
