Served on draft in the Chophouse in a half liter Oktoberfest mug. Beer is reddish with a thin white head that leaves no lacing as the beer is drank.

Aroma is boring and its hard to pick anything out. Its not surprising since these beers tend to be pretty low profile in the aroma department but I was expecting some malt character. It may have been there on the third or forth smell, overall not impressed.

This beer was by all measure average. It tasted good, crisp clean flavor, has an off flavor. A little thin in the mouth but drinkability is good. Overall a decent but not great Oktoberfest.

Serving type: on-tap

Orange and brown colors, this had a bright amber quality. A combination of frothy and soapy bubbles, and a cratered head. So-so retention, pretty nice lacing.

Not much of an aroma. 'Cause its a lager, I guess. Some citrus tang. Malt notes hinted at by a some slight caramel sweetness.

An indistinct tang to the taste, I wouldn't necessarily ascribe it to citrus as I did with the nose. Although still malty overall, this oktoberfest had more pronounced hops than some others, with tang and distinct bittering lingering on the palate for a while. Some nuttiness and graininess.

The taste is good - above average - but kinda par for the Oktoberfest course, I feel. What got me (negatively) was the mouthfeel. It maybe could have used a touch more carbonation, because it had a slightly displeasing syrupy feel.

3.55/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: orange in color with a short 1" head. The head lasted a bit and no lacing developed during the session.

Smell: malt sweetness is all that could be detected.

Taste: malt sweetness, caramel, and a mild bitterness are the main flavor components, with a hint of nuttiness in the background.

Mouthfeel: crisp throughout. Medium bodied. Aftertaste is very short.

Drinkability: easy to quaff this one, as I had two pints during my stay at the restaurant. Worth trying if it is on tap, but don't expect too be blown out of the water with this one.

Serving type: on-tap
