12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass
Appearance: Pours a golden 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 a few wispy clouds that covered the top of the beer. Actually, it looks like a MBC beer. Not attractive in my opinion.
Aroma: Malty and hoppy at the same time. Salty too.
Taste: Malty, hoppy, floral, salty. Actually quite good. Malty up front, followed by some salty caramel flavor, followed by some hoppy bitterness. The balance is tipped more in the hops favor, but not unpleasantly.
Mouthfeel: A little on the thin side, but with some really good carbonation to slap the taste buds awake. With an ABV of 5.9%, there is just a touch of alcohol on the palate, but just a touch.
Overall: It’s interesting to see a Northern German brewery brew an Oktoberfest beer, as that style of beer is traditionally only brewed by Bavarian breweries. Maybe because of the popularity of the style here in the U.S.? This one is pretty good, but nowhere near as good as those from the Bavarian breweries.

I had this on tap at Bierstube in Anaheim. It is a good, very enjoyable oktoberfest.
It looksgood,a nice light brownish copper with a creamyoff-white head, some lace.
Aroma is a nice, simple but full-bodied oktoberfest with lightly caramelized barley and bread crust, light herb.
Taste is a very good,solid oktoberfest with the same basic elements as the aroma, nicely balanced, light sweetness, light zesty bitterness. It's great alone or with German food. Feel is nice, not watery, slightly lively. It's a great easy-drinking but tasty beer.
Serving type: on-tap
