Picked this up at my local wine and spirits - they offer single bottles for between $1.50-$3.00, a great way of trying new beers without making a a financial and fridge investment in a six pack. To my review!

I poured this into a room temperature pint glass. The color was a mild to medium dark orange and it had a very similar smell to most other Oktoberfests. However, when I took the first sip, I was immediately turned off to this beer. The taste was similar to Samuel Adams but tasted like a lite version. While SA Oktfest isn't exactly a heavy beer, it still has a deep enough taste to make it last. The beer was also somewhat tart, something I didn't expect from an OktFest. In all honesty, I dumped about half the beer and poured myself a SA. Was very disappointed. Looking forward to some better OktFests!
