Poured from a bottle with a clear orange appearance. Strong caramel aroma with hints of grain. Like an amplified version of the German originals. More maltiness up front, more hops on the finish. Very smooth finish, crisp and full-bodied.

Not a bad Octoberfest at all. 1/4 barrels on sale at its held up fine.

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.
