3.35/5 rDev +6%
A: Pours a crystal clear amber in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation rising slowly from the bottom of the glass and some moderate amounts of copper highlights. The beer has a half finger tall dense foamy beige head that reduces to a mottled thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of toasted malts with a light aroma of caramel malts. Very light amounts of spicy hop aromas.
T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of toasted malts with a light to moderate amount of caramel malts which contribute a light amount of sweetness to it. That is followed by light to moderate flavors of spicy/peppery hops which contribute a light amount of bitterness which lingers for a short while.
M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin for the style.
O: Fairly easy to drink but not sure that I would want to have many of these - it just seems like a watered down version of traditional Oktoberfests.

3.5/5 rDev +10.8%
12 oz bottle (as pictured).
Pours a clear coppery color, with a tan head, quickly fading foam.
Smell is of toasted malt and caramel.
Taste is much the same, caramel flavors and mild amount of hop bitterness to keep everything in balance. Lots of carbonation give a crisp mouthfeel.
A drinkable example of the style, no complaints.
