Honestly there's not really much to say about this beer on the positive side. Very bland for an Octoberfest. Pours copper color, more carbonated than most micro domestics. Slightly sweet smell, very German style taste and might even use malts from there which is the only thing powerful about the beer. Watery body doesn't leave much on the palate after going down. No distinct note of hops.

Pours copper in color with golden edges. The half finger of off-white head dissipated quickly leaving only fizzy bubbles behind. The bready notes in the nose were very subtle and only really came out as this offering warmed. Caramel malt is present but the overall flavor profile is thin. The finish starts off with a touch of something sweet and then mild dry bitterness.

Poured a nice reddish brown with one finger head that sticks around for awhile. Get some minimal hop bittterness and malts in the aroma but everything seems faint and a little off (this should've been foreshadowing). The beer is more of the same as it's off balance and a little sour/veggie like. The malts are minimal and the hops overpower leading to a bitter, offkilter beer, which is also well-carb'd so it's sharp and has a cutting finish. Not one that I'll bother trying a second time.

A- Golden amber color with a thin head. Very clear.

S- Super sweet and malty.

T- Sweet malt and huge toffee flavor. Butterscotch.

M- A bit of a burn from the alcohol, but very drinkable.

O- Not a bad beer. Not nearly as good as other octoberfests but it's ok.
