Drank draft at dinner of bbq. Nice dark orange light brown color, not much head. Aroma is light some malts. Taste is a nice malty with some nice sweetness. Been my experience this beer is much better on draft than packaged. Worth trying

Pretty copper color. No head.
Not much aroma. Some sweet malt.
Not much in the way of taste either, just a bit of caramel.
Light-bodied.
There are many more better Oktoberfest beers out there.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear amber/orange, with a moderate white head which quickly fades. No lacing. Not much on the nose, faint aroma of malt. Average oktoberfest at best.

I am live in the KC area and hate to give this rating but I find this offering sub par. This beer seems water and lacking flavor and always seems to have a metallic taste the first few sips. I love this style but this version is way to laidback for me. I have been spoiled by the munich brewers.

Orangeish amber colored beer with a small white colored head.

Smells malty and a bit sweet. Mild fruity scent like an ale yeast was used. Mild grassy hop scent.

Starts out mild and malty with a slight taste of scorched sugar. Mild bitterness and slightly woody. Mainly this is just mild flavored and pleasing.

Mouthfeel is about perfect for the style.

Overall a pleasing and mild to the senses Oktoberfest. One of the best of the style I have sampled.

L: Clear copper color with a crackling white head.

S: Sweet caramel malt. Don't get much else.

T: Malty up front. Some herbal spiciness in the middle, then finishes bitter and a little metallic.

F: Moderate carbonation, light mouthfeel.

O: Easy to drink, but nothing to really make it stand out.
