This beer poured a reddish chestnut color just like the label stated. The head was very foamy, and off-white.

The aroma was sweet noble hops, and some biscuit.

The initial taste was a bit bland... there wasn't much to this beer at the beginning, middle, or end. The toasted malt that you would expect from an Oktoberfest was all, but absent. The strongest flavor was at the end, when Some of the hoppiness came through.

The mouthfeel was good. It was a crisp beer with a nice level of carbonation.

This beer was pretty dissapointing. There just wasn't much to it. Some craft Oktoberfests try to mimic the classic Oktoberfest style, and some try to put their own spin on it. I think this one was trying to be a classic interpretation, but it missed the mark.

A little bland, the amber malt and slight alcohol tinge only really peeks through at the way end, the main body of the beer is just rather lacking though it doesn’t do anything wrong

Clear orange-amber with a finger of dense near-white head. Nice rings of lacing. Sweet malty, bready aroma, which continues to the taste. Almost a cherry-like level of sweetness. Light to medium bodied for the style with decent carbonation. One of the sweeter examples of the style.

Description: Drank this directly from the bottle, so appearance is....Smell was malty, yeasty, bready and a little sweet. Fairly muted overall. Taste is similar to the smell and, again, pretty muted. Slightly bitter finish but otherwise much more on the malty, sweet side. Feel is light to medium bodied and carbonation is medium to high.

Overall: 3.5 (This beer is average and I would not likely drink it again) Like most Oktoberfest beers, this beer is pretty uninteresting and doesn't leave me wanting more. Having had a number of fantastic beers from Fat Head's, I'll chalk that up to the style and not the brewery. Needless to say, you can pass on this one.

Bottled on 7/20/17. 12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours copper with a subtle haze but still has some clarity to it along with some bubbles racing upwards; chunky off-white head that slowly falls leaving great thick retention and sticky frothy lacing. The aromas are subtle with some fresh toast. Malts are there. Mild hints of caramel and toffee. Some peanuts in the mix. The flavors are pretty clean, crisp and refreshing. Malts do their thing. More toasted bread. More subtle hints of caramel and toffee. Mild spiciness in the finish. Slightly earthy. Mild to moderate bitterness. Finishes clean. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is very nice. It's light with sharp active carbonation. It's fluffy, smooth and easy to drink.

This is a solid Oktoberfest. It's a clean example of the style. The craftsmanship is on point. Enjoyable stuff.

Bottle, no visible date. Sam Adams glass.

A: pours a copper hue with some bits of sediment, carbonation just blasting away, and a finger of thick white head that retains really well. Lacing was so-so.

S: immediate familiar scent of rich malt and the sourish smell of lager yeast. A little lemony citrus, perhaps. This smells like this is going to be a first rate lager.

T: immediate breadiness and a little sourdough yeastiness on the arrival, fills in to a thick malty and toasted middle with more of that lager yeast taste, toward the end a very, very, mild bittering and some residual sourdough yeastiness.

M: lighter than expected; definitely a mid-bodied beer and in the thicker side for lagers; somewhat slick, which is atypical and notable. This is not cloyingnor really even sweet, but is maltier than Bell's Octoberfest, and somewhat less drinkable.

O: appearance is not as clear as I'd like, smell is pretty spot on, taste is good but not great, finish is decent but not great. This is a good Oktoberfestbier, but not a great one. Lagers are hard to do, and this is an above average effort by any standard.

12oz bottled 7/20/17 poured into a .5L krug at fridge temp 5.7% ABV. The beer pours a bright copper color with short lived khaki colored head. Head recedes to a ring around the glass and a skim coat. The aroma is earthy. I'm not sure if the yeast or hops have more to do with that. The flavor is nutty, toasty and robust. There is a hint of earthy bitterness on the end to balance the malt. Mouthfeel is medium to thin bodied, well carbonated and dry. Overall, very good. The label mentions imported hops and grain. I really could only sense the German malts. It's still a pleasant and easy drinking beer.

12 oz pour our of a bottle into a speigelau IPA glass. Bottles on 7/20

A: Huge chunky fat white head that tumbles like a Belgian head. Body has great clarity and it a bright amber orange.

S: lots of bready fought malts hit your nose exactly as the floral spicy hops do giving the beer an almost bitter smell.

T: fairly sweet lots of nice grainy doughy sweet malts followed by some light spicy hops.

M: good carbonation lightercto medoum bodied.

O: This beer isn't as sweet on tap for some reason a tad more balanced. It's not a bad beer it's just a tad sweet and the hops do not come through in the taste as much as the nose.
