Saint Arnold Oktoberfest has a medium, cream-colored head, a mostly clear, amber appearance, some streaming bubbles, and a little bit of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of medium-roasted malt, brown bread, some sweetness, and that’s about it. Taste is the same, with a slight cherry undertaste and low bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Saint Arnold Oktoberfest finishes crisp, refreshing, and drinkable. This is a winner.

Poured into a pint glass. Pours clear amber with a creamy biege head that dissipates at a moderate pace. There are some tiny streaming bubbles visible in the beer. The aroma is of bread with some herbal and earthy notes from the hops. There's not much in the way of sweetness in the aroma. You definitely get the full flavor of Munich malts here with some mild hop bitterness in the background. I pick up those earthy and herbal hop flavors, but like these are mild and allow the malt profile to come through more. The body is medium with moderate carbonation. The beer is crisp and smooth, permitting high drinkability. This is a very good beer.

On tap at Gordon Street Tavern in Alvin, Texas

This is sweeter than the Karbachtoberfest with a bit less flavor overall. Very smooth and easy to drink. I could finish three of these back to back no problem.

A bit sweet, but didn't overpower. Just a good solid beer in my opinion. I would have no problem drinking these again and again. Enjoyed.
