Copper orange with a thin head of large bubbles. Mild breadiness, light caramel, and an odd grape juice character seem to be the primary flavors. Grassy hops are a bit rough before a husky astringency at the end. This is in the bottom quarter of both the German and American brewed Oktoberfests that flood the shelves this time of year. The green bottle doesn't help things either.

Bought locally (Grapevine refrigerated shelves), three days in my fridge, reviewed 45F-60F.

A big cream-colored head has big clear bubbles in the middle. There is thick lacing. The color is pretty straight amber.

The aroma is malty, sweetish, caramelized sugar, etc. There may be slight light exposure problems (damn green bottles).

The beer starts with sweet caramel giving way to a watery middle. The finish is sweetish with a hint of hop bitterness. Overall: ok.
