Thanks Henry.
This was poured into a mug.
The appearance was a ruddy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Light stringy lacing.
The smell had some rich nutty malts flowing crisp and sweet over light caramel and toffee malts. Smells real nice.
The taste was semi-sweet with an earthy to grassy sweet back up.
The mouthfeel was about a light to medium in body with a slight sessionable sticky sweetness to it. Carbonation runs light.
Overall, as an Oktoberfest made by an American brewer, its not bad but I think I'd go for some others of the style before this one.

Served in a clear plastic St. George cup, this amber colored beauty was ripe for the sipping. At first dip of the lip into the 39 degree supple cup of bready goodness, my tongue rolled in pulsating waves of joy in its anticipation. Upon the first drop to the last, my pallette was imbued with a cornucopia of flavors. My first reaction was an old nastalgic memory of my father breathing into my supple boy face after having carved a hearty grin into the family pumpkin, his beard all mucky with beer foam and recanting tales of his youth. As the autumnal season was upon us, red yellow and orange hues filled our landscapes and our hearts. This beer has awoken the little boy inside of me who dressed as a ninja turtle, would never forget the day he wanted to follow in his father's footsteps and one day drink great beer. This day had arrived today.

12 oz bottle poured in a stemmed glass. Smooth easy drinker, and great for the style.

Appearance: Golden brown with a short white head that fades before I can put the bottle down. Decent transparency...just a bit hazy.

Aroma: A hint of caramel and a distinct but faint spicy hop aroma. It smells clean.

Taste: I get that distinctive crisp "lager flavor" with a hint of sweet bread flavor. In the end there is a tea-like earthy presence and similar tea-like bitterness. A bit of toasty flavor at the end as well.

Mouthfeel: It is very light and refreshing. Low in both bitterness and carbonation, and low presence on the palate overall.

Overall: It seems like this would be a good go-to Oktoberfest. It is very easy to drink and would be great for any kind of party or get together where you want to have a few beers and not fall over. I recommend picking it up and trying it out. If you like Oktoberfest style beers you would probably enjoy it. It's not an over-the-top beer...it's very mellow and laid back because it's an Oktoberfest beer.

Poured a orangish gold with decent head that left quick with minimal lace. Had a slightly grainy, earthy hop and pils malt aroma but also had some nice sweetness tucked into the aroma as well. Smooth, easy to drink, not to sharp or grainy, crisp finish. Taste is like the aroma in that there's a mild presence, balanced mind you, of minor citrusy hops and some bready and sweet (caramel) malts. Not the most flavorful beer but it does the trick as it has a nice taste and could easily be a session if you are looking forward to getting tanked at an Oktoberfest event.

Growler purchased from brewery. Pours light amber into a tall pilsner glass. Frothy, off-white head that disappears quickly. A touch light in color for style. Smells pleasantly sweet.

Sweet grains complimented by earthy and slightly spicy hops. Toasty bread notes. Slight metallic, earthy taste in the finish but it helps cut through the caramel sweetness. Light to medium-bodied and really wonderful to bridge the summer to fall.

Really easy to drink, this is a solid Oktoberfest. Given that some of the Oktoberfests from Germany arrive a bit later and maybe a touch on the exposed side, this is a refreshing alternative and fairly true to style. Great match for pepperoni pizza.
