Feels kind of strange drinking an octoberfest beer on this warm, muggy night. Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a bronze color with amber hues and a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild a bit of malts. Taste is also very light, some toasted malts, not a lot of flavor here. Feels light in the mouth and overall, not a bad beer, but seems to be lacking and real flavor or punch.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a beautiful golden-copper, amber color with a half of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass

Aroma: Very malty and very bready, like freshly baked sourdough or French baguettes. I get notes of black pepper, and caramel, as well as floral notes of clover and honey.

Taste: Very similar to the beer’s aroma. Very malty and bready up front, with notes of black pepper, caramel, salted butter, honey, all beautifully balanced with some hoppy bitterness at the finish. Delicious!

Mouthfeel: Medium and creamy with some good carbonation to tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of 5.8%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is an excellent American version of an Oktoberfest beer. Beautifully crafted, beautifully balanced, beautifully flavored, this is one of my favorite Oktoberfest beers. I love it!
