Sampled this evening on 8/31/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a 14 ounce 'Texas" glass boot.

Pours a copper-amber in color with a good 2-finger head that stays around for a while. Some decent lacing is seen when sipped. Perfect carbonation. The aroma is of caramel, toffee, and malts but not real strong. Pretty much the same with taste also. No bitter or harsh aftertaste. Not as 'hoppy' as other Oktoberfest brews I have had at all. Lighter to medium-bodied. Overall a good brew.

Pours a clear orange color from the bottle with a 2 " head. Foam lasts throughout the beer at one finger. Carbonation is good. Not a lot on the nose other than wheat. The taste was disappointing. Some spice (cinnamon, all spice not sure) then a not so great

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on August 29, 2014.

It pours golden amber with a big and fairly long lasting white head. Good lacing.

The aroma is not very prominent but I pick up roasted German malts but also a sort of soapy character.

Light to medium body.

Still toasted bread in the flavor with a bit more bitterness. Nothing extraordinary.
