3.63/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer is served an orange-amber color with a small but persistent white head. Over time the head slowly fades, leaving almost no lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is light overall, but has notes of caramel sweetness and a bit of a roasted smell. Other than that there is a very light smell of some lighter fruits.

Taste – The taste begins sweet and maintains that profile throughout the taste. Upfront there is a good deal of caramel sweetness with a small amount of a roasted malt taste. As the flavor advances the a bready flavor increases with some spice joining the flavor as well. While the caramel remains the same strength throughout, the overall sweetness is augmented as the taste moves to the end as flavors of some apple and pear as well as some flavors of brown sugar come to the tongue. In the end a little bit of a herbal flavor combines with the rest, with the mix of flavors leaving a quite sweet, but overall rather pleasant and slightly roasted and malty flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium to slightly thicker side with a carbonation level that is rather average overall. Both are quite appropriate for the style and suit well the sweet, roasted/malty and spiced flavors of the brew.

Overall – An Oktoberfest that is on the slightly sweeter side with not much hop influence, but a nice easy drinking feel overall. A pleasant and easy drinker.

I really like this beer. After landing in MN. This was in the fridge at the hotel. Great taste, no linger, easy to drink. Marzen style drinkers will like this beer. A little on the front end that I don't care for, but that fades pretty rapidly. Label could use an upgrade, looks like a production beer.

I find myself trying every Oktoberfest and pumpkin flavored beer I can get me hands on, this one was pretty good! I am a easy going critic as I enjoy just about every beer I've had so... saying that, I still feel there was something missing here. I wish I could place it with words but don't yet have the beer vocabulary to do so. Overall very drinkable though!
