This is a tasty, highly drinkable oktoberfest with a little nice complexity. I think it is somewhat improved from the past. Currently, it is somewhat reminiscent of Spaten or Hacker-Pschorr.

Very dark reddish with some brown, it has a small light tan head soon shrinking to a thick, lasting foamy ring and a weak hint of lace.

The aroma is mild but very malty, caramelly-fruit with some prune and underlying grain.

The taste and feel are more interesting, primarily sweetish, caramelly malty with prune, and faintly earthy-leafy quality throughout. It has a light sour yeastiness mid-way, and finishes drier and more toasty, with faint leafy bitterness. It's very drinkable and enjoyable if nothing outstanding.

This showed up as a dark orange and brown without any head or lace worth mentioning.

The smell has some malts but there really isn't much there. The taste consists mainly of a plain malt base with hops used only to round the thing out. The layered malt profile that I tend to enjoy in this style of beer was missing.

It's just overly simplistic.
