2.94/5  rDev -11.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Big, two-finger head that receded quickly. Carbonation bubbles hugged the sides like cola. Nice, dark-amber color. As it drained, there was some sticky lacing.

S - Malty biscuit dominates the nose, little else was detectable.

T - Some pepper, but mostly a tinny alcohol was up front. Did not pick up much hoppiness at all.

M - Something less than medium-bodied. Not much aftertaste, but then again, not much taste at all.

O - This thing went downhill from the appearance, to the smell, to the taste. I was disappointed since I like Shiner's bock, and farmer's ale, and since Oktoberfests is a genre I really enjoy each fall!

3.24/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A: The beer is clear yellowish copper in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down and left a thin head covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of toasted malts are present in the nose along with hints of earthy yeast.
T: Similar to the smell, the overall taste is quite malty and has flavors of toasted malts and earthy yeast along with a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has some characteristics of German märzens but seems a little lighter in body.

Serving type: can
