Nothing wrong with this brew, nor was there anything really exceptional about it.

Sort of what I would expect from an Oktoberfest lite. Appearance and smell were pretty normal, taste and mouthfeel a bit light.

Not something I would order again, but fans of lite beers might like it.

Serving type: on-tap

I went out to dinner at Chef Amaury's 33 West restaurant in Aurora, IL and they had this on the menu, so I ordered one. 12oz brown bottle served in a pint glass.

The beer poured a clear amber/red color with a ½-finger of white head that lasted a few minutes and left moderate lacing.

Toasted malt and caramel smell along with a whiff of oak barrel.

Toasted malt and caramel flavor with a low but noticeable hop bitterness, which is a bit unusual in an Okroberfest. There is also an oak barrel taste along with some spicy alcohol.

Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. There is also a bit of warming alcohol in the swallow.

This is not your typical sweet Oktoberfest, but it's still good and definitely worth a try.

Poured into a Huber Beer Stein

A) Clear, dark brown color, fall oak leave color, thick three finger head that dissipates quickly leaving a lot of lacing. Good amount of carbonation too.

S) Wow oak up front immediately then lager yeast and malt.

T) Roasted malt, can taste Munich maybe pilsner grains, oaky finish and a little alcohol at the end. Very sweet beer nonetheless.

M) Medium Carbonation, light body, but not watery

O) Not a bad American style Oktoberfest. Very tasty beer I can't wait to have on tap!

Had a pint draught at World of Beer at Easton in Columbus, OH

Appearance - Clear golden amber with off white head

Smell - Somewhat fruity, not very aromatic to be honest

Taste - Malty, semi-sweet, slight oak aftertaste

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation

Overall - Decent, could use more aroma.

Serving type: on-tap

4.45/5  rDev +19.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottle poured into dimpled pint glass, two finger off white head with moderate carbonation.

Appearance: amber to dark brown in color

Mouthfeel: thick

Smells: bready, malty, and toasty

Taste: The best part of this beer, is the complex taste! You get the bready malt with a toasty, spicy finish at the end, but the final finish is the French Oak that they age this brew in for about a month.

Overall, this is a splendid beer! I want to try it on draught.
