This ale pours with a very clear deep amber color with a thick slightly tan head with great retention. The carbonation is well balanced and stay with the beer to the finish. There is a nice mellow malt flavor with a very nice aroma. The finish is smooth and slightly sweet. A very nice example of an Oktoberfest; but, not the best.

Pours a pale orange-amber color with a thin white head. Nose is herbal with notes of grains, fresh cut grass, and hops. It has a bit of a malty and bready flavor with notes of caramel and oily hop resins. A decent Oktoberfest brew, but there are plenty of better ones out there.

This is a solid Oktoberfest on the amber side of the scale. Toasty malt is most prominent with some mild spicy hops and a hint of dark fruits - maybe raisins or dates. Very tasty but I'm not crazy about the green bottle. nb
