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...

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Thank you shan8454 for this trade.

Appearance: Amber with a thin white head. No lacing on the glass.

Smell: Malts and hops.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth light to medium bodied. Taste of malts and some sweet sugary notes too.

Overall: This one is ok. Sweeter and lighter than most Octoberfest brews I have had.

Pours a clear amber color with a small head that fades to bits of lacing. Aroma is on the mild side with roasted malt, bit of malt sweetness and a bit of hops in the background. Taste of roasted malt, bit of caramel sweetness and a hint of chocolate. Has a subtle bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly medium body, crisp, quite smooth and refreshing. Not a fancy Oktoberfest, but still enjoyable.
