Appearance: A dark copper color, exactly what i'd expect from a Oktoberfest. Some head on the edges of the glass, and a little bit over the surface of the beer. I'm not disappointed by the appearance of this beer.

Smell: No so much flavor as i'd expect from an Oktoberfest. Alcohol is evident on the smell. This beer sort of just smells like a bud heavy or most generic light beers.

Taste: Very bitter. Not very much flavor, just alot of alcohol taste.

Mouthfeel: High carbonation, and medium thickness. These don't match each other very well. This beer isn't match up well against other Oktoberfest.

Overall: Is this an Oktoberfest or a regular domestic american brew?

This had all the makings of a good Marzen style beer but after the initial blast of flavor it just falls apart leaving you wondering what happened?
