Out of a single 12 ounce can purchased in Texas, on to the beer:

Fitting the seasonal theme is the autumn orange color with an inch and a half of head and wispy lace clinging to the glass. The aroma of sweet dough, raisins, and a kiss of booze makes this marzen festive smelling. The beer is pleasantly malty. Sweet dough making the base with red grapes and toffee in the back. Medium-bodied and smooth, this is one Oktoberfest you could use to wash down your pretzels and bratwurst

This beer from the fine folks in Texas is smooth and crisp, with a buttery cinnamon-brown sugar overtone to it. Yet it's still easy enough to drink that you could pound plenty of Oktoberfest liter boots of the stuff!

Medium reddish amber with a thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. Moderately malty-sweet and very well balanced. Light bodied, mildly carbonated, clean and crisp. Pleasant.
