L: pours a light, bright amber color with a head that dissipates quickly.
S: you cane smell the fruit and caramel with the distinct Marzen malt smell
T: That oktoberfest flavor but a brighter, more fruity flavor then a lot of other one ones. Sweet and tasted of caramel and malt. Not much bitterness on the end.
F: medium bodied with not too much carbonation.

O: very solid Oktoberfest. I find myself wanting a bit more bitterness on the end, but very delicious.

Rather malty, but not a bad malt like most octoberfests. Slightly watery though.

Twelve oz picked up in variety pack. Bottled on 233 day of the year. Poured into pint glass. Light amber with decent one inch head that fades slowly leaving coats of lace. Smell is sweet almost grape green apple with baked bread. Taste follows with a creamy finish. Great easy drinking beer. Cheers!

Pours a nice amber color. Has aroma of caramel malts. Flavor is smooth and mellow. You get the malts and touch of sweetness. Overall a nice Oktoberfest style beer with a nice flavor.
