Typical light bodied herbal Oktoberfest
___

A: Pale golden yellow with a fleeting one finger off white head

S: Not very aromatic. What I'm getting is typical euro hops and a bit of dry bready malt.

T: Hop forward, on strong grassy, herbal, and spicy notes. Dry bready malt sits quietly underneath. There's something a bit 'mass production' about the taste, though not enough to ruin it.

M: Highly carbonated and just a hair on the thin side.

I do not feel that it is appropriate to give this beer a formal evaluation, as they did not deliver a product worthy of the traditional format.

This is the first time I ever had an Oktoberfest that tasted like this. It tastes like a mixed vat of Heineken and Beck's. Maybe the factory put the wrong label on the bottles and the bottles in the wrong box.

Getting through these has been painful.

Thanks to Jim & Renee for this one!

Just had two in a row and realized it hadn't been reviewed.
Pale gold with a copious amount of foam, pour slow and its no big deal. Sudsy lacing all around the glass, lasting head retention and surface coverage. Bright clarity, looks more like a Helles, with steady trails of rising carbonation.

Hint of that green bottle skunk, boo. Light grain husk behind that.

Smooth creamy feel, lightly toasted grains, malty and smooth, crisp light apple note in the aftertaste which is fairly clean and dry. Very mild bitterness, 0.5/10 scale, barely there. Overall well put together, not overly flavorful, but it does the job with no flaws other than the mild skunk in the aroma.

Poured into a mug. Pours golden color with little head. Smells of some roasted grain but very weak. Tastes of caramel and sweet syrup very nice from the grain yet not overpowering. Beer is light bodied goes down great. Overall a slightly above average beer.
