This doesn't taste anything like an Oktoberfest. I don't know why it's style is being listed as American Amber/red Ale. They market it as an Oktoberfest. They host Oktoberfest festivals and call it "authentic".

I have drank this beer many times and have found the taste varies from 6 pack to 6 pack. It often has off flavors. Sometimes it taste like band-aids, others it has metallic flavors.

I poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a nonic, amber pour, big white head. The aroma is sweet and bready. The beer is sweet, lots of caramel malts, lingering sweet finish, then there is a mettalic note. The body is full, good carbonation. I liked it until I noticed the mettalic aftertaste, not sure I would pick it up again.

look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Extremely hazy, beautiful orange color, next to no head, just a thin layer of white bubbles.

S - Sweet malts with a bready yeast aroma dominate. Hints of some chocolate and roasted malts as well. Maybe some slight spicy hop notes as well.

T - Same as the aroma for the most part, with the sweet caramel malts coming through a lot more while everything else falls into place. The mild roasted flavor comes through a bit more as well.

M - Thin to medium body. Fairly watery for what I was expecting. Finish is wet and slightly sweet with flavors of caramel and roasted malts.

O - Decent, but I don't know that I would drink it regularly (when in season). It almost tasted watered down. If it had a little more meat on it's bones I might have liked it better.
