This is a good, solid oktoberfest, tasty and highly drinkable with some complexity.
Dark, brownish copper, it has a small but dense light tan head that shrinks slowly to a lasting thin top. It leaves fairly decent lace.
The aroma is caramelly fruit (mostly pears and plums) with rich whole wheat and a hint of brown sugar.
The taste is whole wheat bread with spice, licorice, caramel, grass, and leaves. It has a light bite and is a bit on the darker-bready side of the style.

Pint swing-top bottle, great looking medieval bottle,
A: Pours an attractive bronze with a half finger sized head, good retention, no lacing.
S: Bready malt, and a strange berry note, light.
T: Bread and caramel upfront as expected. Big mineral qualities make it taste somewhat like a kellerbier/marzen mix. Had some sulfur notes I wasn't too wild about, perhaps it wasn't lagered long enough. An OK tasting brew.
M: Very light carbonation, soft feeling on the tongue, watery at times.
D: This is an OK Oktoberfest beer, it certainly got better as it warmed up and the solid caramel flavours came to the forefront; I wasn't digging it at all when I first tasted it. Expensive, but worth a try, the other reviewers seem to like it more than I did.

Clear copper colored beer with a good off-white colored head, dead on for the style.
Quite a nicely scented beer. Strongly malty with lots of toasted and biscuit notes. Slightly grassy but other than that this isn't very highly hopped.
Taste starts out toasted grain and a raisin brain cereal flavor. Mild hops in the finish slightly herbal and mostly grassy. Quite pleasant but the flavor could be a bit deeper.
Mouthfeel is good.
Exceptionally easy to drink. Taste is a little light but this doesn't get old very quickly and the mild taste doesn't deaden your sense of taste after the first liter of this. An excellent Oktoberfest beer for consuming by the 1-liter mug full.

Pours beautifully as a dark golden tea color with an impressive 2 fingers of tiny bubbles that melt to very attractive mapping.
Aroma is caramel toasted malts, some floral and fruitiness, and very clean and fresh.
Taste is sweet caramel malt, brown sugars, a little fresh fruitiness, and bready grains.
Finish is dry bready grains and a little nuttiness.
Mouthfeel is very creamy and smooth...again with a very, very drying finish.

16.9 oz. bottle (half litre) with a swing top, purchased at the Canoga Park BevMo. Enjoyed in a Becker glass.
Copper-orange color, bright and perfectly clear. The cream-colored head is fairly dense and creamy. It leaves lacing when you tilt the glass, but it doesn't stick to the glass.
An initial sweetness fades somewhat into a drier, grainy scent. There's plenty of lightly toasted malt, caramel, and whole-grain bread in there, along with a slight apple-skin fruitiness. Hops provide a very mild, herbal spiciness underneath the malty sweetness. Very faithful to style.
As with the smell, this beer starts off predominantly sweet, then dries out in the middle and ends with a well-balanced bitterness. Caramel, brown sugar, and malted-milk flavors fill the mouth, followed by whole-grain bread and a nuttiness that seems to be equal parts cashews and Beer Nuts. The mild bitterness at the end is lightly floral and herbal, with a faint anise note that is closer to tarragon than licorice. Slight mineral character to the finish.
Medium to full body. Round and mouth-filling. Rich, but not heavy. Carbonation is lively but not obtrusive, and the small bubbles provide fine texture and contrast to the body.
The rich nutty and malty flavors, balancing bitterness, and round body with well-textured carbonation add up to a wonderfully drinkable beer. I'd love to put this one into a tasting line-up to see how it fares against some of the more popular versions of the style.
