Somewhat pale reddish amber with a medium off-white head. Good flavor, mostly well balanced but very slightly on the bitter side. A little more carbonation than some other Okterberfest beers. Light to medium bodied. Good, but not my favorite.

Poured from tap into shaker(at brewery) 1 finger head recedes pretty quick. Clear orangish amber in the glass, crystal clear. Smells of malt, biscuit, and caramel. Taste caramel sweetness on the front, mild and smooth to the end. Nice beer, drank a 12 pack of this a couple of weekends ago at a wedding, 8 hr puppy, didn't think I would ever drink it again

Karbachtoberfest – picked up while leaving phone at HEB, cut shift short, heading to Lee Scratch Perry in a hurry. Didn't want to go back for it, trust the town enough to know it will be returned when someone eventually finds it in the cart, after some rain.Pulled over for paper tag, asked if I had any marijuana after stating destination was reggae show. Just a fan of the music. Foam sounds a lot like all the rain we've been having, dancable and cooling. Proudly gold color right on time with Olympics. Foam thick and billowing like a washing machine tinged with dish soap. Rich and smooth like someone a Kardashian would fall for. Crispy and thirst quenching like lettuce. Sweet as German fashion model whose greatest vice is chocolates.

Poured from can to pint glass. Smells appropriate - like a malt-leaning Marzen should. Pretty good. Not sweet like some others, so that's different. It has a kind of toasty bite. Enjoyable.
