This was not what I expected and was pleasantly surprised at the smoothness and flavor. Definitely a new seasonal favorite!!

terrible that this tastes to me like the shandy. not sure if they put this on the same line or what, but man do i get a concentrated lemonade thing in here, which in any light does not belong in an octoberfest lager. the look is incredible. frothy soapy tall lasting pure snow white head with beautiful retention and lace as it drinks, i mean, it could not look any better for what it is, with the pale copper beer clear underneath. a little light maybe, and definitely light in malt on the flavor, especially compared to is german counterparts. there just isnt much base to this, thin and watery and oddly citrus forward but not from hops, tangy but not quite tannic. nice because its light but bad because it tastes nothing like the style is supposed to. no caramel or anything like that, not german cereals, and no yeast profile at all, doesnt even seem like a lager. the tang of the shandy lasts through the finish, and i would never guess this is an octoberfest beer in a blind tasting. fine for all day drinking though i guess if you dont know what its supposed to taste like. i was unimpressed.
