2.4/5  rDev -34.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

red-orange color. good clarity. good off-white head. good lacing.

medium malt aroma. clean lager aroma, that is predominant in the bouquet. no hop aroma. very light toasted aroma. subtle caramel/toffee aroma.

taste is initaily slightly sweet. low malt flavor. low hop bitterness. no hop flavor. finish is sweet. balance is toward the malt and the crisp finish overpowers the thin(delicate) flavor of the beer. the taste is pretty non existent on this one, and what flavor there is, is most notable that of adjuncts.

medium mouthfeel. crisp finish.

overall this is not an oktoberfest worth drinking.
