Maybe I had a bad batch, but bought a single at Whole Foods in Montgomery and I hate to say it (because I love goin' local) but this is the worst Oktoberfest I've ever had -- fell totally flat with a heavy, metallic aftertaste.

Pours a clear, yellow/amber colour. Smells like cereal malts, a little sweet, notes of caramel, raisin, and not much else. Tastes light overall, crisp clean, cereal malts, caramel, a little date-syrup, dry palate throughout, slight bitter hop finish, surprisingly light and crisp for an Oktoberfest.

This is a modern version of Oktoberfest; like the ones you see now in Munich. Lots of great malt flavor and nicely balanced with just enough hops! Could use a bit more carbonation, but that hardly detracts from the awesome drinkability of this finely crafted lager. Can't wait for next year's version!

First had poured from 12-oz. bottle, BORN ON "09/19/2015," into stange. Labeled a "Helles Marzen Lager," but seemingly a cross between that style and Märzen/Oktoberfest, it is a bit sweet for either, but still a very good late September (Oktober) lager.

Poured into a mug. Nice clear amber color with white head. Aromas of sweet malt and dark bread. Clean taste with caramel, toast, bread and some floral notes. Medium bodied and dry on the finish. Nice.
