Deep clear copper color. Thin foam doesn't keep to form a head. The aroma is weak, lighty toasty/nutty, but not much there overall. The flavor is pleasant, nice bready and toasted nut maltiness, with a hint of bitter toward the finish. There is a good deal of carbonation which makes for a nice mouthfeel. Medium bodied also, not thin. This was a decent Oktoberfest, very right for the style, but a bit boring. I might try it again...

This beer is a clear amber-copper color and has hardly any head to it at all. There is a sweet clean malty aroma up front with a light caramel note and something that reminds my wife of Juniper berries (I think that she is right on this one). The taste has that same weird juniper berry note to it; it really seems a bit out of place here. This does have a nice clean bitterness to it in the finish, but it is overwhelmed by the afore mentioned astringent juniper note. With out the berry note this would be a decent example of an Oktoberfest, with it though it just seems to bug me a bit.
