Just released in the Omaha market this past week in bottle form.

Appearance is spot-on for an O-Fest, deep burnt-orange to light copper.

The label says they used German malts, and it shows. Wonderful, bready malt elegance that typifies the style in both aroma and taste. Hops are here strictly for balance, and are also noble in origin.

The taste is all malt, with a slight burnt candy finish from what I suspect is CaraMunich malt. Very pleasant to drink, and a cut above their regular offerings.

At 5.5% ABV, you can have a liter or two. In fact, if I were at a Fest, I just might stay with this one the whole night. Good job, guys.

Aroma - Toasty malt, but not caramel. Very clean aroma.

Appearance - Nice orange color. Completely clear. Off white head that dissipated to only a ring around the edge of the glass.

Taste - Brief malt sweetness. Somewhat toasty, but again, no caramel. Little to no hop flavor or bitterness. Balanced toward malt but still dry. Very clean.

Mouth Feel - Medium body. Creamy. Clean and dry finish. Good carbonation.

Overall Impression - Good beer with a somewhat complex malt character. Very clean beer. A solid Oktoberfest. Definitely drinkable, but nothing to rave about.

Serving type: on-tap

The last guy probably got a bad bottle. So take it for what it worth. This was a decent, not solid, but decent brew. . All I can say is this beer is not outstanding, but I wouldn't turn down drinking 2 or 3 of them wth a buddy if he had a six pack. Not bad but not good. Definitely one to try if you got it.

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

A: Dark, reddish amber hue with a huge bubbly, foamy head; lacing is not there and this is a pretty murky looking lager

S: Grainy and somewhat herbaly and sour; musty and metallic; something smells a bit strange here; and there is way too much malt for an Oktoberfest--at least it smells that way

T: Yep, it's really malty and grainy; something medicinal on the finish; some burnt malts, toffee as well in the finish that make it somewhat pleasant

F: Pretty thin--even for a lager

O: A pretty average Oktoberfest; not bad and refreshing but subdued, simple, and too malty
