12 oz can poured into stein.
A - Semi-clear light bronze with a finger of off white head, which rapidly recedes.
S - Sweet and light smelling, with a hint of caramel bread and biscuit.
T - A somewhat light taste. Sweet and bready with caramel and the slightest hint of corn. It almost has a metallic finish to it.
M - Thin body with moderate-to-high carbonation. It's definitely crisp and refreshing. Easy to drink as well.
O - Not one of my favorite Oktoberfests, but it would be great as a football or campfire beer. It's crisp, refreshing, and easy drinking, with no real bold flavors.

12 oz can pours a crystal clear medium gold color with a standard off-white head. Average retention and lace.
Nose is honeyed grains and lagery yeast. Not a whole lot going on in the nose...smells like it is somewhere in between a marzen and a festbier.
Malts have a nice 'fresh-crushed' flavor to them and stay light...touch of toast and honey, not unlike eating some Golden Grahams. It is not as dark and richly malted as most American Oktoberfests, this one goes for more balance as a slight grassy bitterness creeps up after a few gulps. It is a highly drinkable offering and I am really digging it. I could drink a ton of these, it is very clean and refreshing. I can see multiple repeat purchases in my future.
