Draught @ Headkeeper: This one pours a clear, lighter amber color. There was a small off white head that left little lacing. Decent aroma. A bit of toasted malts. Possible some earthy hops also. No noticeable sweetness. The taste is decent. Toasted malts and slight biscuit notes. It has just a hint of bitterness and is very smooth. Nice!

Pours a transparent copper color with a moderate head of sudsy, off-white foam. Aroma smells of green, grassy hops, apple peel, and a hint of caramel sweetness.

The flavor follows suit, with grassy hop bitterness on the back of the tongue, along with the golden delicious apple tones commonly found in Munich lagers. The caramel sweetness is held in check well for an Oktoberfest, maintaining some semblance of balance. A hint of skunkiness is also detectable, be it from the hops, the green bottle, or a combination of the two. The light body complements a crisp mouthfeel, making for a very drinkable brew.

Overall, this is a very pleasant and easy to drink Oktoberfest that is neither cloying nor watered down; a pretty safe pick if you’re in the mood for the style.

Solid seasonal offering. Crisp and clean, a little bit of spice from the hops and yeast but not too floral or bitter. Not too heavy, so I could still enjoy drinking this on a warm-ish September day.
