Bottle from our hand picked Fall / Oktoberfest 6 Pack.
Pours slightly hazy, chestnut brown with tan head. Foam fades, thin stringy lace.
Smell is of caramel malt, toasted bread.
Taste is malt dominant, caramel, and some herbal hop at the finish.
Lower level of carbonation, smooth but still a slightly crisp mouth feel.
Overall, this is a pretty average beer, drinkable but nothing special.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a golden, copper color with a quarter of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Strong notes of toasted malt, black pepper, caramel, clover and hops. Some subtle lemon citrus too.

Taste: Malty and bready, like freshly baked sourdough bread, followed by some black pepper, a little bit of lemon, caramel, and some nicely balanced hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with some pretty good carbonation to tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of 5.4%, there is presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a pretty decent American version of an Oktoberfest beer, but nothing special. Tasted good as I drank it, but it was totally forgettable once drunk. I probably won’t get it again, but I won’t turn it down if offered.
