Just a shade or two darker than a helles or pilsner. Light amber.
Nutty aroma and a whiff of hop.
Tastes of bread crust and nuts. Slightly sweet and a slightly unpleasant almost metallic bitterness in the end.
Quite good, if nothing remarkable.

500 ml can stamped on the bottom of the can with a production date of July 2015 and a EXP(iration) date of Sept. 2016.

A bit light in both malts and hops, as well as body and color, for style, but no major flaws. Clean and refreshing. Lightly sweet up front and all the way into the faintly spicy, nutty and bready aftertaste.

Appearance: clear golden body with loads of visible carbonation topped by a moderately durable white head that leaves patterned lacing.

Medium-light body and medium-high carbonation.

500ml can, day 19 of the 2015 Costco Beer Advent Calendar - more Oktoberfest brew in December, when it's just too damned cold for dirndls!

This beer pours a clear, pale golden yellow colour, with three fat-ass fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and bubbly bone-white head, which leaves some attractive layered snow rime lace around the glass as it slowly recedes.

It smells of biscuity and grainy caramel malt, red apple skin, bar-top nuts, a twinge of gasohol, and plain earthy, leafy, and grassy noble hops. The taste is bready, doughy pale and caramel malt, some indistinct pome fruitiness, bland nutty notes, a suggestion of petrol astringency, and more mild earthy, weedy, and dead grassy hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly understated in its low-profile frothiness, the body a so-so medium weight, and mostly smooth, nothing really all that keen on messing about here, it would seem. It finishes trending sweet, the malt and vague fruit flavours holding onto the reins as this one romps off into that good night.

A simply rendered version of the style, with no real flaws or anything to specifically complain about (I'm just in that kind of mood right now). Easy to drink and easier to forget about as a packaging anomaly for this time of year. Next!

3.5/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Deep amber brown, with a bit of haze. Modest, coarse, off-white head slowly fades. Irregular rings line the glass walls.

Aroma: Rich, dark bread aroma, with notes of dark caramel and toast.

Taste: Opens with prominent dark bread notes, and dark caramel. There is an earthy, nutty presence as well. As the taste progresses, there is more earth, and just a hint of smoke. Little hop presence is discernible, just a faint, nearly neutral bitterness. Late in the taste, a restrained herbal bitterness brings the taste to a close.

Mouth feel: Full and soft, very pleasant, with just faint carbonation.

Drinkability/notes: Though it seems a touch odd to be drinking an Oktoberfest in December, though its 59F outside, its good. Would pair well with roasted meats.

Presentation: Packaged in a 500 ml, 16.9 ounce aluminum can, served in a standard Pilsener glass. Beer number two (December 2nd) from the 2017 Costco Advent Beer Calendar.

Pours a murky brown-amber with a finger of khaki foam. Head retention is good with a little lacing. Aroma is biscuit and bread malts, with a touch of plum and raisins. Flavor profile is biscuit, and bread malts. There is a little dash of plum. Mouth feel is medium-thin and fizzy. Overall, a simplistic traditional beer. It's straight forward.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 16oz can.

Moderately hazy in the glass with a reddish copper-brown color. A modest white head that settled fairly quickly. The aroma was muted but was bready with some raisin, pumpernickel, and faint floral notes. The taste followed for the most part with bready flavor, some melanoiden, and a bit of stale cardboard. Low bitterness and hop presence. The body was slightly thin and carbonation was medium.
