I sampled this beer along with two other similar choices (Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat and Sierra Nevada Tumbler) and it seemed thin and devoid of taste or flavor. I really expected to like it more but was left disappointed. The color and appearance was good, the taste was not.

Dundee's take on the style is a bit darker than some, surpassing copper to be more of a bronze. The head, a tight, tan cap, gets to one finger tall but ends up half that, which then sticks around and leaves some spotty lacing around the glass as it falls.
I get a malty sweetness with caramel and a light biscuit along with slightly herbacious hops, but it takes effort to force it out of the aroma; the flavor is a bit stronger. It is very well balanced, for what it's worth. This stands about in the middle of the pack, and could use more strength but has a generally good profile.
The feel is light and leans more toward crispness than smoothness with a bit more than moderate carbonation.

I poured a bottle into a mug.

Appearance- Dark copper-brown color with a fingers worth of tan head. Fair amount of lacing.

Smell- Light smell of caramel malt sweetness with some nuttiness.

Taste- Slightly sweet nutty malt flavor with the faintest hint of hops at the finish.

Mouthfeel- On the light end of medium bodied with a nice amount of carbonation. Smooth and crisp but just a little watery.

Overall- Not bad, I've had better oktoberfest beers but this was worth a try.

It has been a while since I have tried a brew from Dundee....
A: Poured a Marzen copper / brown color with light head
S: Rich roasted sweet malt ... its an Oktoberfest for sure . The hops are hard to find but that is a good thing.
Taste : It's an easy drinker for all you malt heads. Do like the sweetness in this one.
M : Medium mouthfeel and good finish. Represents the American style well.
O: This one is on the same level as the Sam Adams version for sure . Will be fun to drink throughout the season. Can you say grilled brats .
