This is my first fall beer purchase of 2012 and I'm happy with my choice. Great looking clear beer that's golden straw in color with a bit of lacing but not a huge head hanging around. The aroma reminds me of this beer style and is consistent with other brewers offerings... malty and yeasty, nothing new here. The taste is similar to the smell although there is a bit more depth with a nice malt flavor up front, a bit of hops that balances without being overpowering and a good dose of the yeast profile. The mouthfeel leaves some residual sweetness behind but does not make your mouth stick together. This is a nice addition to the flooded market of fall beers that are entering your local beer shop this time of year... happy fall!

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.

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.
