A decent offering of an Oktoberfest. Has the traditional toasted and caramel malts, slight bready/nuttiness. A decent enough hop bitterness. The biggest knock I have is the mouthfeel. It's just not up to par. Too thin and watery. The classic aroma and flavor profile is there, but it just doesn't have the type of body necessary for the style...at least in my book.

The mixture of caramel and malt really break out when you first taste this. My problem is all the other flavors that are also trying to break through. Just too much going on here.

I think this is a damn fine Oktoberfest beer. Yes, as other's have noted it is not a heavy beer like most beers in this style. However, the flavor is great. It has a great head and looks beautiful in a glass. If I lived in colder climes I might have an issue with the lightness/wateryness of this brand, but if your October has temps in the high 80s and 90s, this beer is refreshing. It's the best "cheap" Octoberfest I can find anyway. Better than Sam Adams for sure.
