Best before: 5/21/16.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, earth, and caramel aromas. Taste is much the same with toast, caramel, nut, and earth flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that smells solid, but the flavors don't quite match up to me.

Serving type: bottle.

Poured from a 11.2 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "best before" date 5-21-16.

APPEARANCE: pours a clear, golden color with less than one-finger white head that slowly dissipated until just a ring of small bubbles remained around the glass, there is minimal lacing, medium carbonation.

SMELL: sweet caramel, toasted bread and a slight euro skunk smell.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet caramel and toasted bread then a slight euro skunk hop profile, there was also a metallic note present.

PALATE: light body, medium carbonation.

OVERALL: this is not a bad beer, I enjoyed drinking it but there are much better beers in this style so I would not seek this out again.

Pour a clear yellow into a pint glass. Thin head, little lacing. Ok taste. A little bready and sweet. This beer is ok, but not remarkable. Much better Octoberfest beers out there.

poured from a 12 oz bottle into a dimpled mug

The beer pours a golden straw color with a white frothy head that dissipates fairly quickly, leaving behind a moderate amount of lacing. The aroma is very mild, consisting mostly of sweet, bready malts. Unfortunately, the aroma is much lighter than I would like and is fairly one dimensional. The flavor light and sweet with a few toasty undertones. The beer finishes with a light bitterness giving the overall flavor a very balanced feel, even if it is a bit too light for the style.

Overall, the beer is decent, but is underwhelming.

Worst Oktobetfest I ever had. Way too bitter.

Light gold color topped with a thick, frothy white head. Malty, caramel nose; sweet and spicy in character. Toasted grain flavor; crisply sweet; toffee and burnt sugar. Medium bodied; mildly sweet finish.

The color may be light for the style but there is a nice, persistent toastiness and warmth to this beer that seems pretty fitting. I don't know why there isn't more love for this beer, but one should try it and make their own judgement.

This beer poured a golden wheat color and looked more like a Pilsner than an Oktoberfest. It had a pure white creamy head.

The aroma was very earthy/yeasty.

Typically, I split the taste into beginning, middle,and end, but this beer has so little taste that it was hard to break up. The beer tasted like a light Pilsner. There was some bitterness on the back end, but there are no other flavors that stuck out.

Mouth feel was crisp and had slightly above average carbonation.

This was not an Oktoberfest. It should be called Pilsnerfest.
