This beer is WAY good for the money, but you can tell that it's the cheapest Oktoberfest you can get your hands on in the US. It's got nice lacing, but the head doesn't last long. The colour's even almost copper, but on the lighter side. You can taste a mild sourness common in cheap lagers. It kind of tastes like if you took a good marzen and poured some cheap Walgreen's lager into it. STILL, it preserves a lot of the things I like about marzens, which are some of my favourite beers. Fall is my favourite season for beer. It's got a rich, toasty flavour and a really nice blend of malt flavours, cheap-tasting malt, but still, very well blended. It really tastes like a marzen. The hops, too, taste genuinely like the hops a marzen should have. They're barely, there, just as they should be, but what flavour profile they provide is more than just a bittering agent. They add a bit of flavour, themselves. This is a great buy for the money.
