3.4/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: reddish amber with an off-white slowly diminishing head. A fair amount of lacing. I had worse expectations.

Aroma: lots of sweet malt with some grainy smells as well

Taste: sweet malty taste and a slightly bitter, watery taste. A little alcohol is present. This is kind of a one-dimensional beer. It's an Octoberfest, so its not gonna blow me away, but I have had better. The malts are definately too weak here.

Mouthfeel: a little watery, but the carbonation was done fairly well.

Drinkability: I could have a bunch of these. I had a couple out of the bottle while watching a football game and eating Taco Bell and it was great. I think its a good session brew for football games, though I would definately take Boston Lager over it.

Notes: Not bad for what it is. If you are looking for flavor, go somewhere else, but if you want a beer with more flavor than Budweiser, but the same drinkability for those long football game parties, try a Sam Adams.
