Copper orange, small off white head that fades to nothing, and some spotty lacing. Aromas are strong honey soaked sweet bread and hints of caramel. Notes of honey dipped bread, grass, perfect toast, light caramel, fig and cherry. Medium body, clean, little dry on the finish, and begs to be drank. I'd rate this a really solid Oktoberfest. Flavors are great and it has some strong aromas which I appreciate from the style.

Appearance: Pours from the can a semi-cloudy amber, with heavy head of off-white suds. Nice loopy lace.

Aroma: Crisp malts — toffee, toasty caramel apple, bonfire leaves. Pretty damned swell.

Taste: First, the body here is quite light, but the taste itself is quite palatable. I get toasty grains and a hint of honey sweetness, followed by a pleasant nip of fruitiness at the finish. All told, the flavor vanishes quickly, though. So, although this is a solid and enjoyable Oktoberfest, it’s definitely not up there with the real German thing, though.

12 ounce can, canned 08/06/15. Served in a mug, the beer pours a hazy orange/amber color with a half inch off-white head. Head retention is OK, but there isn't much lacing at all. The brew smells like bready malt, caramel, and some apple fruitiness. I think the taste is mostly like the aroma, but there's also some nuttiness and a bit of herbal hops noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It's not bad and I think it's worth trying once, but at the same time I'm glad I just bought a single of this and not a six pack.
