Taste is biscuit, light caramel, and a touch of hops. Hits all of the expected marzen notes and is a bit sweeter than I am used to in the style. An above average and affordable representation of the style, that I would consider getting again, even though I prefer other marzens.

A really good, smooth Octoberfest. Tastes a lot like their Shiner Bock but Oktoberfest is a better taste and a better finish. I'll buy again.

This beer was probably the best Oktoberfest that I had this year. The flavor and texture were just something I looked forward to every time I picked up the glass. To me the only real shortcoming was that the foam kind of gave up quickly instead of standing off as I drank it.
