3.33/5 rDev -3.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: pours an orange color with a 1/4" head that falls apart quickly.
Smell: very little aroma as only some malt sweetness is hard to detect,
Taste: malt profile is a bit mild with some slight nuttiness, and a bit of ripe dark fruits. Bitterness is very mild.
Mouthfeel: lighter side of a medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp throughout. Short lasting aftertaste.
Overall: a very weak flavored oktoberfest beer that is easy to consume, but lacks the satisfaction expected from the style.

3.73/5 rDev +8.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a brownish tinted amber color with a one finger head of pure white foam. The head has a good level of staying power, fading slowly over time to leave a decent level of streaky lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is of a lightly roasted malt aroma with some nice aromas of a caramel sweetness. A light amount of spice is there as well giving an overall sweet and lightly roasted Oktoberfest aroma overall.
Taste –The taste begins with a lightly roasted and bready flavor with a strong showing of caramel. As the flavor advances from the initial, the flavor initially sweetens even more with some brown sugar flavors coming to the tongue. The roasted gets a bit stronger more toward the middle of the taste with other flavors of spice coming to the tongue. The sweeter flavors, at the same time, start to dwindle with a light herbal flavor that comes to the tongue. In the end the mix of flavors leaves a sweeter roasted and lightly hopped flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium side with a carbonation level that is on the medium side as well. Both are fitting for the style and make for a rather easy drinking style.
Overall –An overall easy drinking, sweeter Oktoberfest. Rather tasty overall and not bad for the price.
