Dark caramel color, beige head. Somewhat sweet nose, but somewhat plastic-y and mineral-y. There's a fair amount of noble hop taste that's almost minty, with a astringent malt backbone. Medium body, but a bit creamier than I like my Oktoberfest lagers. It was kinda a mess. Glad I was able to share the whole 4 pack with coworkers and not be stuck with any.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Golden honey orange in color with a slight chill haze. Poured with a short, soapy white foam that reduced to a wispy cap and left wet lacings on the glass. Grain and light toasted bread aromas up front with sweet malt and buttery aromas at the back end. On the lighter side of medium bodied with a thin buttery feel up front with assertive carbonation through the middle. Grainy toasted malt flavor throughout with buttery flavors in the middle and floral hop bitterness from the middle to the end. Finishes crisply but not cleanly with a buttered toast finish.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: A normal caramel copper color. A cream colored head recedes to a light film, a few splotches of lacing.

Aroma: Malty, faint sweet caramel, crackers.

Taste: More on the cracker toasted bread side of things, some sweetness from malts.

Mouthfeel: Slightly dry, carbonated.

Overall: There's just something off about this.

2.88/5  rDev -7.7%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

LOOK: 12 oz twist off cap. Pours a light orange copper color with a white head that recedes to a ring. Clarity is decent with this German style lager. About par for the course on the look, retention being a bit low however.

SMELL: White bread, grains, and alittle caramel going on in the nose. Has a generic beer aroma aside from light caramel on the back end.

TASTE: Upfront there is some toasty malt and caramel, tasting like a light American take on an Oktoberfest. Little to no hop profile, there is a faint bitterness, maybe the slightest citrus and finishes bittersweet, mostly sweet. Toffee flavor hides in the background, along with some buttery diacetyl.

FEEL: A light body and medium carbonation on this brew. A bit thin and watery, and the finish lacks a true malty ending.

OVERALL: This is a more mainstream take on the style, but is not terribly different from a lot of others on the market. One of the better offerings from the Horny goat line, this is OK.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours a robust brown coloer with a full finger of off white foam. Aroma is a bit off, there is a some sourness in the nose.

First sip is.... not great. There is a sour/lactic off flavor, with a bid of a metallic aftertaste. It has a lingering harsh aftertaste. There is no crisp finish, or malty sweet flavor. It just tastes off.

I was a bit skeptical when I saw the branding of this beer, and unfortunately the beer lived up to my impressions. Glad I only bought a single.
