Pours a deep amber to copper color with a light beige head. Some biscuity and Vienna-like bready aromas and a subtle fruitiness from the yeast. Slight dosage of hops in there to round it all out, too. Malty smooth with a bit of caramel-like toasty sweetness and a crisp finish with some low alpha hops that is slightly drying to the palate. Not a bad brew; easy to drink, but lacks a bit of depth and complexity. I guess this beer is just meant to be drank in excess by the half liter, in lederhosen, of course :^)

A very light golden orange. Aroma is a little malty and metalic. Taste is malty with a metalic eruo flavor. I am surprised an Octoberfest from Germany is so thin in taste. Not much stands out.
However this one is a very easy drinker. Its very smooth and thirst quenching. Just not a great example.
