look: 2.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 22 oz bottle into a German style mug.

Appearance: The body has a nice deep amber color with very good clarity but it’s light tan head faded out quickly. I am now left with a naked beer and no lacing.

Aroma: The nose is light overall. I get light sweet and bready malt notes with hints of herbal and earthy hops.

Taste/Palate: Up front there’s some lightly sweet malt carrying some light caramel and toffee like notes. Hop notes add balance and an earthy character which leads into the finish. The feel is firm and softly carbonated.

22 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a very pretty, clear, dark, mahogany color with an eighth of a finger of white-colored head that quickly dissolved away into some wispy clouds of foam that partially covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Nice aromas of bready, toasted malt, imparting notes of freshly baked biscuits and freshly toasted bread. There are also notes of caramel, and brown sugar, black pepper, and a touch of grassy, piney, hops.

Taste: Delicious! Lots of toasted malt up front, imparting bready, biscuit-lilke overtones, followed by some caramel and brown sugar-like sweetness, some black pepper and very little in the way of hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and very smooth as there is very little in the way of carbonation. With an ABV of 5.5%, there is no alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a fantastic American-version of an Oktoberfest beer! This will definitely be in my fridge every Autumn! Very, very, delicious and highly, highly recommended!

Pours out a clearlight amber with gold tint. The white head does not last vey long but leaves a little bit of lacing. The aroma is medium malt, with bread and fruit tones. The taste is very similar with a just a minor addition of hops to balance it. They aren't distinct but you can tell they're there. The body has a nice weight and feel to it, neither too heavy or light. A really lager.
