look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a crystal clear medium to dark copper in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and moderate chestnut brown + medium golden yellow colored highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense creamy foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to a medium sized patch of medium thick film surrounded by a large patch of thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of toasted + bready + caramel malts with slightly heavier than light amounts of caramel sweetness. Slightly heavier than light aromas of earthy + spicy hops.

T: Upfront there are slightly stronger than moderate flavors of toasted + bready + caramel malts with slightly heavier than light amounts of caramel sweetness. That is followed by light to moderate flavors of earthy + spicy hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which linger for a bit but leaves a light caramel sweetness behind.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: Easy to drink and enjoyable. A good example of the style and a definite throwback beer for me (I think I first drank this at the Clubhouse Pub at RPI in the mid-1990s). Nice complexity to the malt flavors though a little sweeter than I prefer my Oktoberfests.

330 ml bottle into dimpled mug, bottled on 7/3/2017. Pours crystal clear deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big brown sugar, brown bread, cracker, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bready malts and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big brown sugar, brown bread, cracker, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of brown sugar, brown bread, cracker, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bready malts and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from bitterness. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.7%. Overall this is a delicious Oktoberfest! All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bready malts and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and easy to drink with the mildy bitter/drying finish. Very rich and complex Munich malt flavors, solid hop flavor presence, and just enough bitterness to balance the sweetness. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

.5 L can poured into a pint glass

Pours a light burnt orange color with a white head, lots of lacing, looks very thin. Not much on the aroma, smells metallic, like a penny, little bit of spice, not much else. Light notes of caramel malts, toast, spice, finish has that metallic penny-like taste. Light bodied with a metallic dryness. Not very good at all, light in color, taste, aroma, and mouthfeel, has a strange penny-like metallic flavor.

Draft at horseshoe
Big fluffy creamy head, rich lacing, slight hazy copper brown colour

Nose toasted biscuity brown malt, little sweet malt, soft fruity lager notes, maybe hint of spice

Taste sweet candy malt caramel, biscuity, caramel apple lager fruit, soft lagering and fruit, little cinnamon like spice again, toasted candy malt, juicy malt

Mouth is med bod, decent carb

Overall not bad, not quite the same as the other good Oktoberfest beers from Germany, no reason to get this over almost any other choice

I originally bought this bottle because of the cute blond girl on the cover and one of my friends making a comment about her chest, when I got home I popped the cap off the bottle, the smell had that nice traditional October smell of malty aroma with slight hops. The taste was good but seemed a bit too fizzy for my personal liking, overall I enjoyed this beer.

Pours a dark clear copper with a white head. Smells of malts and some roastiness. Tastes of malts, mild hops, and some roasty flavors. Medium in body and carbonation. Overall a pretty good beer, but nothing I'd get again.

Nice dark color, good froth, strong taste, maybe a bit too strong for me, nice smell. I like it, but it is not among my favorites.

Pours a clear, copper color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of pale malt, Euro yeast, hint of sweet malt, hops, and slight caramel malt. Fits the style of a Marzen / Oktoberfest. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, Euro yeast, hint of adjunct, hint of sweet malt, slight caramel malt, and a hint of hops. Overall, weak appearance, decent aroma, feel, and blend.
