Handsome orangey amber in the glass with a decent head. Quite sudsy with a sparkling, but light, mouthfeel. Some malty substance with a club soda taste on the tongue.

Malty nose with some caramel. Plenty of roast malt. Rather sweet but seems appropriate to the style. Some hints of hops with a little earthy bitterness at the finish. Clean flavor with a pleasing fruity touch, but just sharp enough to give it some balance. A hint of oily texture.

Thoroughly pleasant version of Oktoberfest. From the 12 oz bottle bought at Pinkie's in San Angelo.

This is a good Oktoberfest beer.

I'll say as far as Texas versions I prefer Saint Arnold's version over this one, and Karbach Karbachtoberfest over Saint Arnolds.

This one seems to have the most bitterness, though it is still smooth overall.

An easy to drink beer and certainly something to look forward to come the fall each year.
