Bottle courtesy of Iowaherkeye. Thanks!
Think I waited to long on this beer. Pours a bright clear reddish orange malt with a small beige head. Smell is sticky, stale, gooey malt with band aid qualities and metal. Probably not as it was intended. Unappealing malt flavor and metal as well.

Served this in a Green Bay Packers pint glass.

Pours an amber color with a 1 finger white pancake head that lingers around for awhile and then leaves a white ring around the edges. Notes of sweet caramel malts, fresh grapes, bread, maybe a hint of syrup. Tastes of dark bread, roasted malts, caramel, and maybe a touch of earthy hops on the backend. The mouthfeel is crisp, clean, refreshing, balanced, and light in body with minimal carbonation.

Man this is one fine Oktoberfest. Extremely drinkable during a nice fall afternoon when you want something sweet, light, and refreshing. Flavors are slightly subdued but its perfect for the style. This is perhaps the best Oktoberfest I've had.

Cheers!
