Poured an amber color with little head that did linger a bit and leaves no lacing. Smells of bread, malts, and some clover I believe. Taste just like it smells. Bready and malty with some sweetness toward the end. Feels ok going down and is a pretty ok beer overall.

I bought this a few weeks into November when the store was trying to move Oktoberfest inventory to make way for winter brews. I was not a fan, wouldn't recommend it. There are better oktoberfests out there.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a pretty, clear, copper/amber color with a quarter of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed wispy clouds that gathered in the center of the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very Malty and bready. Strong notes of cereal and caramel. Subtle notes of black pepper, coriander and clover. Not much in the way of hops, however.

Taste: Very similar to the aroma. Lots of malt up front, slightly roasty, flowed by some peppery spice and caramel-like sweetness, finished by some really nicely balanced hops bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, with very little carbonation. With an ABV of 6.0%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a decent American version of an Oktoberfest-style beer. Very tasty and very refreshing. Solid beer.

Pours a thin head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is a confusing mixture of candy and malt.
The taste is candy sweet, mild grain and touch of bitter. Quite sweet overall.
The texture is sticky.
It's really sweet without balance.

10/19...pours reddish amber autumn with a fast acting white foam that settles out. Nose of molasses, malt, caramel, sugars. Malt forward taste with a spiced middle. Slightly out of step bitter. Very euro. Good, not great.
