look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a golden color (a bit light for the style), with a nice off-white, frothy head, with good retention. On the nose there is a sweet malt aroma. On the palate there is a steady malt flavor with a ever so slight roastiness, slightly chewy mouthfeel. Easy drinking, but could be better for a O'fest...still a very drinkable O'fest.

alright, but by no means fantastic oktoberfest. i would have to say that this is one of my least favorite oktobers yet. it is still a good beer to drink. it goes down very well. a bit malty and sweet, it will be fine to throw back, but there are much better oktobers out there

A decent little beer, but for me it was a bit too sweet. Very sweet maltyiness, almost has a honeyed flavour, low bitterness, and lacks any bite to the flavour, quite good however, but yes, a little sweet, probably not the best example of the style.

Very light malt sweet aroma that is quite pleasant. Medium gold color that is a little light for style. Nice frothy head that has good retention. Lighter steady malt flavor with slight roast characteristics. Dryness from start to finish, and lasts but is pleasing. Somewhat full mouthfeel with it's sufficient carbonation. Would be easy to drink several in one sitting and probably enjoyable too.
