Pours a cloudy orangey amber with a creamy white head. The aroma is almost nonexistent. The taste is mild as well, with just hints of fruit. The body has a nice feel to it with a little carbonation.

I am giving this the rating I am giving it for the style not as the best beer I have ever had. I think I am going to begin doing ratings in that respect. Just judge the beer based upon style and how much I liked it. Not being overly comprehensive. But, maybe I won't. This beer has a low rating overall and I think it is one of the better Oktoberfest beers I have had. It may be less traditional or less experimental, but its damn drinkable. It really is a lager with more malt and flavor. Its really a solid beer.

Color: Light copper. Very little head.

Smell: Not much, some bready malts, almost a little like apple juice. But those are aroma's of fall to me.

Taste: Crisp, this is where the beer really shines, its not too sweet, its not flat, it has good body and a nice bready/lager hybrid flavor. It is a lighter version of the style and maybe that is why I enjoy it so much. Its closer to some of the European light Marzen's than a lot of the ones I have had recently. This beer is very sessionable and perfect for a Saturday in October watching some college football and one that you won't get wasted while drinking. Overall, its another win for Highland. They really do make beers that appeal to lots of people with lots of integrity. Its awesome they are also celebrating 20 years in the business, this year!

Pours a crystal clear golden color with a small off-white head. Smells toasty and clean...straw, caramel, and some fruit. Flavor is nicely malty and not too sweet. Toasted grain, floral notes, slight bread, and grassiness. Medium-light bodied, clean, and moderately carbonated leaving a lingering dryness. A totally decent Oktoberfestbier.
