Amber color with slight head. sweet carmel malts. Taste is much better than the smell, its sweet carmel but very tasty. medium body and lots of carbs. Pretty good beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a beer mug.
LOOK: Pours with a half finger's worth of off-white foam that halves itself after 45 seconds. Amber in color. Rising bubbles are high in number. Lacing is moderate and thin.
SMELL: Has mild aromas of graham crackers and caramel malts that mix with hints of spicy and bitter hops.
TASTE: Initial taste is of mild pale malts and graham crackers. Subtle caramel malts enter immediately after along with subtle spicy hops and hints of bitter hops as graham cracker flavors persist, but pale malt flavors grow stronger.
FEEL: Full-bodied and highly carbonated. Goes down smooth despite its high carbaonation. Ends with a thirst-quenching finish.
NOTE: This was pretty good! Way better than the Sam Adams one. Pale malts were still a little too much on this one, but manageable.

Poured dark orange into a large mug. Not a great head. Drank this right after a SN Riegele Octoberfest. The St. Arnold's is not as good. The other had many subtle tastes, but the St. Arnold's was sort of one note. I like this beer but will likely stick to the SN offering for the season.

Smooth creamy. Nice heat. Great deep copper color. Excellent version of my favorite style. Nice malty taste.

Not a bad Oktoberfest, but St. Arnold could have done a little better on this one. It could use a little more on the nose.

Actually an Oktoberfest ale! Saint Arnold tried it as an ale and a lager and the ale was much more popular. Very tasty!
