3.5/5  rDev +8.7%

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.

Hmm where to start... I love oktoberfests, and this said Oktoberfest-style lager.. So I thought I'd like it... I'm glad I only bought one tho.. The smell is great, look is fine, but the taste.. Oddly sweet.. Too sweet.. and to be honest it doesn't even taste like Oktoberfest to me.. its close enough u can tell it was attempted.. but it just doesn't make an Oktoberfest IMO... its an OK beer I Guess... But I will never buy more.. this reminds me of a drink a child would drink.. too sweet for my tastes...
