Bottled 08/30/17

L-The beer pours a clear reddish brown with a 2 finger off white head. The head recedes to a thin ring with modest lacing present.

S- The nose is pleasantly malty without being sweet. The hops present are well balanced and behind the scenes.

T- The pleasant malty nose translates very well to the palate. The malts are toasty rather than sweet. Hops are there, but do not interject and detract from the malts.

F- The mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium. Carbonation is restrained. Not the driest finish, but the toasty aspect of the malts help in this respect. I'd personally like a touch more carb to help with the finish.

O- A very well done American fest beer. I'd happily drink this again in the future.

500 ml bottle, no dating on it that I could find but I'm pretty sure it was released sometime in the fall of 2016. Served in an ATG mug, the beer pours a clear amber color with about an inch and a half off-white head. Head retention is good, and there's a decent amount of lacing. The brew smells like toasted malt, caramel, and some spicy hops. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also some nuttiness noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's smooth and easy enough to drink. I wish I would have tried this fresher, but I didn't see any bottles until a couple weeks ago. Just have to wait until next year I guess! I thought it was a decent enough brew. $4.99 a bottle.

From the 22 oz bottle in a snifter. This decent little fest pours a beautiful
clear amber with a fantastic head of off white foam that subsides to a thick ring,
thick layer, and features some nice lacing. Nose of breaded malts, subtle zesty hops,
and caramel. Flavors follow the nose with breaded malts and zesty and pretty spicy hops
on all sides mingling with caramel with a moderately spicy hop finish. Mouth feel is crisp,
medium carbonation, and finishes rather bitter for an Oktoberfest brew.

Decent, but outside of the style other than being an American interpretation.
A bit too much hops really----it is appreciable for the hop head, but not for the
lover of a good German Oktoberfest. Nice to try, but more American than German.

Improves with warmth.
