12 ounce bottle into dimpled mug, bottled on 7/16/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, brown sugar, brown bread, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good complexity and balance of dark/bready malt and light earthy hop notes; with decent strength. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, brown sugar, brown bread, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, biscuit, brown sugar, light nuttiness, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavor with minimal yeast ester notes present in taste and aromas. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice Oktoberfest style. All around good robustness, balance, and complexity of dark/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Not bad at all, well, nothing special either, I had low expectations but found the beer reasonably tasty. Certainly much better than the regular quantity beer. The cost of $4 a six certainly helps the score.

A: crystal clear; copper colored; 1 finger white head that receded slowly to a thin cap; nice lacing;

S: light malts, but not a lot of aroma;

T: not a lot of flavor either; what's there is nicely malty, but it seems watered down;

M: light to medium bodied; light, creamy carbonation;

O: it's got potential, but needs more of what's there;
