The beer pours a bronze color with a little cloudiness, about a half inch head that vanishes.

The smell is toasty malts, faint spice, light caramel sweetness.

The taste is slightly sweet, toast grainy bread, and a very mild lemon note on the finish. A little grassiness. Slightly bitter on the finish.

It seems light bodied for the style, but is medium in body and delivers a clean taste. A bit of lingering bitterness and a vaguely herbal note in the aftertaste.

Overall, a nice drinking beer, low enough ABV you could have a couple. Decent representation, but a little light in body.

Potosi's Oktoberfest pours an amber hue with a moderate head and light lacing.

The aroma has hints of caramel, a bit of bread and some spices.

The flavor starts out decently with the caramel and bread like malts but there is a bit of a pronounced bitterness in the finish that I was not fond of.

This was a bit of a disappointment overall for me.
