Thanks to Thorpe for this one.

The pour is a slightly cloudy amber color with a thin white head. A bit of oak and grass to it. Not really much aroma to it overall, maybe a little bit of malty sweetness. A very faint grass flavor with a little bread. A little bit of lemon zest and tartness. Really an odd beer. Light bodied with medium carbonation.

Thanks to TheArkhamMink for the bottles!

Pours a pretty dul yellowish brown. Not much on the nose except for some fruit (apple?). Taste there isn't much going on here except for a sourness at the end that probably shouldn't be here (umm Oktoberfest beer?). Mouthfeel is pretty normal, not too thin tough. Hate to give bad reviews but this is overall a pretty avg beer and not something I would seek out again. Just like the previous review, I am having trouble figuring out how long this was in oak, cause it sure isn't there in the taste.

thanks to jamie for this bomber.

A- dark copper red color with big head after slow pour into 32 oz mug.

S-funky cant put my finger on it but has some big german malts and hops. the oak age has some wood notes

T- also slightly funky. not original style oktoberfest by any means. Oak, licorish and dark sugar come big on this one.

M- tacky and bold. not bad but not that good.

O- My first two bros beer. Not a big fan of this one sorry. Much better oktoberfest beers out there. The oak on this one is lost IMO. Would like to try more of there offerings.
