Pours out a nice dark golden brown color that’s crystal clear and filled with mild carbonation. Its topped off with a nice thick off white head that sticks around for a while. Its got some really good lacing, the aroma is a bit on the light side with hints of pumpkin, wheat and mild hops. Some grass and herbal smells come through from time to time. Crisp on the tongue at first, it mellows out as it spreads throughout your mouth, it has some nice wheat flavors, mild grass notes when you swallow but that’s all I get fro it. It is light bodied but good overall.

Oktoberfest pours a pretty clear golden color, with a very lite head. There is a slight malty aroma. There is a crisp light malty taste. Not to watery a bit lighter, a little carbonated. Overall its a pretty solid Marzen, a bit lighter but still rather enjoyable.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

A real nice classic red amber/brown body and crystal clear. Some very faint rising carbonation you really have to look though. Head makes a simple light tan and fluffy four fingers in size, some decent retention to this. Looks inviting, and looks like an Oktoberfest, pretty solid.

Nose has a little big of grass malt and caramel. Clean, not much sweetness, kind of neutral smell. Definitely senses like a Marzen, so far so good.

Palate hits with a somewhat wet and light body. All the aspects for a marzen seem to be here but are toned down. Light bodied caramel sensations, faint toasty grain. Slight quenching finish and mild hard to find bitter with a slightly grass aftertaste. The majority of the palate is in the front and not in the aftertaste interestingly. Slightly palate coating.

Overall this comes off as just a simple Marzen, but it's easy drinking and I could drink this again without discomfort no problem.

A - Pours very clear amber with a monster white head. Leaves great lacing.

S - Munich and caramel malt, adjunct.

T - Malt up front followed by some very slight adjunct. Sour, metallic finish.

M - Light, Creamy body with almost no carbonation.

O - There were hundreds of these at my local foodtown in large metal bins, all for $1 a can.it's a simple, straight forward beer and great for the price. I'd have another for a dollar
