12oz bottle into a snifter. The brew appears a clear copper color with an off-white head that retains well leaving spotty lace as it fades.
The smell includes notes of caramel and toffee malt. Sweet yet fruity and floral with a touch of alcohol. The balance between hops, malt and alcohol is well done.
The taste is fruity and floral from hops but also a bit of fruity alcohol is evident overtop caramel/toffee malt sweetness. A touch of buttery diacetyl comes out once it warms up.
This is a medium body with a modest amount of carbonation. It is crisp and easy drinking. Worth a try but nothing over the top exciting here.

P- Wegmans in Mechanicsburg
A- light orange fall color. Minimal head and lacks the lacing I like.
S- bready raisin nose but comes out very light in aroma. Maybe a musty pepper smell as well.
F- breaded raisin malts. Not much else maybe the pepper but it is faint.
M- light bodied vinegar malt.
O- Not bad but not good. an average Oktoberfest and worth trying but not worth buying a sixer.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Pours light amber, and with light white sticky foam. Malt nose, but small, some caramel. Bready. All Malt taste. Varied sweetness, but held in check by a subtle hop. Not much of a story to tell here. Simple but good. Sessionable.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy, golden-copper, amber color with a quarter of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed wispy clouds that partially covered the top of the beer.
Aroma: Very malty and bready, like most Oktoberfest veers, but slightly musty too, but in a good way, like crushed grapes. I get notes of freshly toasted raisin bread, salted butter, black pepper and floral notes of clover and honey.
Taste: Very malty up front, but quickly followed by a higher hops flavor than other Oktoberfest beers that I’ve had. The beer is actually much more hops forward than I’m used to in Oktoberfest beers, but not at all, unpleasant; rather, tasty in fact.
Mouthfeel: Medium, with a really good amount of carbonation to not only tickle the taste buds, but wake them the hell up! With an ABV of only 4.8%, there is absolutely no presence of alcohol on the palate.
Overall: Another very solid Oktoberfest beer from an American brewery. Very tasty and actually a little more unique than other Oktoberfest beers in that it’s much more hops forward in flavor. This is another beer to add to my Oktoberfest rotation.
