Poured into a pint glass.

Pours a clear dark copper amber color with lots of bubbles and an off white head that sits pretty chunky initially. Head settles to a nice lace layer and leave some good lace. Looks good.

Brew smells of malts and some mellow hops. A true lager nose here with just a bit of spice in the nose. Smells pretty good though.

Brew is spiced in the middle and in the end. Starts with good creaminess from the ever present head; caramel malts in the middle and lots of nice peppery spice. Lots of carbonation - but it works well here. Head settles down a bit and the creaminess subsides. Still good stuff though. Brew finishes clean, and you want another sip. Good slight sweetness to this one. Nice malts and some hops in the finish. This is a good session brew. Good.

First brew from Dundee and I like it. A better take on the style than some of the better craft breweries out there. A great price point for a good Oktoberfest. I will seek out again.

P: Orange-copper colored body topped with 2 fingers of frothy ice cream float head. Good retention with wet lacing.

S: Toasted caramel malt, toffee, spiced rum soaked fruit, honey wheat bread and grains.

T/M: Super rich malts, spiced fruit, timid rum and bread. Focus is in the malt with little to no bitterness. Sticky mouthfeel with nice carbonation. Finishes semidry lingering caramel apples.

O: I like this Oktoberfest it's more rich and malty than some with a great mouthfeel. Nice take on the style.

It sure pours nice...a ruby red colour, an inch or more of foam, does well with the lacing.

The smell is all bread and grain. To the style.

Bread, grain, mild sweetness, no bitterness in the taste. Pretty much to the style and pretty tasty, easy drinking.

I find this to be a nice example of the style; I've had others from brewers with a bigger rep than this and they weren't as good. A good effort from Dundee, me thinks.

I sampled this beer along with two other similar choices (Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat and Sierra Nevada Tumbler) and it seemed thin and devoid of taste or flavor. I really expected to like it more but was left disappointed. The color and appearance was good, the taste was not.
