4.13/5 rDev +22.2%
Bottle poured into a regular pint glass
This is a really good Oktoberfest beer.
A bit less bitter than the Shiner and Karbach styles I've recently had. About the same smoothness as the Saint Arnold.
Really good carbonation.. just right. Great taste. I'd buy a six pack of this over many others.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a very brilliant amber color, which shines in the light. Little foam. Very sweet malty nose, and loads of esthers. Quite buttery malty taste, and a lot of caramel in the mix. Sweet finish, with just a nutty hint of hop at the end. Very good,.

If you said this was a pumpkin beer I'd believe you, it's that sweet and malty.
Clear and reddish orange in the glass. Quite a carrot-top color. Head and retention are nothing to brag about, and the carbonation is just average. Almost an oily mouthfeel. Rather tangy with some green apple flavor. The maltiness is quite distinctive with some burnt caramel. A touch of earthy hops I"m not so crazy about.
A stronger, more flavorful, and pretty weird sort of Oktoberfest, but quite drinkable. From the 12 oz bottle bought at H and H Beverage in Abilene.

It's a clear, dark amber with a nice head.
It smells extremely malty. There's a hint of what smells like isopropyl alcohol, and it's unsettling.
It also tastes malty. The different notes hit you for a few seconds straight.
It runs over my mouth like a wave. This beer gooey, but great. It isn't the typical ideal mouthfeel that I look for. I think it's in a whole other category.
Overall, this is both one of my favorite October fest beers and one of my favorite dark beers.
Actually, I'm not really sure why it's an Octoberfest at all. If you threw some coffee in it you'd have a great beer in a totally different kind of way.
