3.03/5 rDev -5.9%
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.

on to the weak beers!
slightly orangish color with a very nice head of frothy, creamy, white topping! very nice pour into the Golden Harvest masonry...
supposed to be 'Oktoberfest-like', and very commercial-like, as expected... no wonder I stick to those high-powered seasonal stouts...
taste is... commercial. nothing special here. typical. bland, but decent. looks beautiful upon pour, looks very german, but still very commercial and without the caramel malts. but then, this IS supposed to be an Oktoberfest-type brew.... Abita has solidified the market of commercial, yet slight craft-y brews. great drinkable (session) brews, but still nothing spectacular. widespread availability, relatively successful (financial) I imagine, but still nothing quite yet game-changing. VERY LIGHT, indeed... cheers!

A-Clear yellow orange, some carbonation, two finger fluffy head.
S-Malt, wheat, caramel, some grass. nothing else.
T-Very wheat heavy, straw as well. Some caramel, very malt forward, grass and dirt as well but not balanced.
M-Lighter, not much carbonation and watery.
O-The lack of balance hurts this beer, it is bland and doesn't offer much.

I poured a bottle into a mug.
Appearance- Clear amber color with a fingers worth of lingering head. Fair amount of patchy lacing.
Smell- Caramel malt and baked bread aromas with a hint of nuttiness.
Taste- Similar to the nose with a touch of earthy hops.
Mouthfeel- On the light end of medium bodied with an average amount of carbonation.
Overall- A decent example of the style. Not the best that I've had but certainly enjoyable.
