look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a dark amber color with a small head that dissipates instantly. Has nice lacing.

Smell - Sweet and caramel smell, grassy, earthy hops.. Nothing else really stands out.

Taste - Very strong caramel flavor and very malty. Also toasty with quite a bit of bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied and fairly carbonated.

Overall - I'd say this is like the average Oktoberfest.. nothing special about it.

Dark orange-amber, a fluffy head, nice lacing. Smell is mostly just grain and sweetness, but the taste is much better--light malts, floral hops, exquisite balance and a dry, clean end with some lingering toasted flavor. Juicy in the mouth with good carbonation, this is a German lager done very right.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: The body has a nice coppery amber color with good clarity and some visible carbonation moving thought the inviting liquid. It’s topped off with a light soapy head that quickly settles down to just a light covering of foam hangs on well and adds some spotty lacing on the glass.
Smell: The aroma is light overall and offers sweet bready malt notes up front and center with mild hops in the background.
Taste/Palate: I get a nice, very drinkable mix of sweet bready and toasty notes with a touch of caramel like sweetness just coming though. The hops just come out lightly in the finish and add a touch of floral and grassy bitterness. The palate has a light medium feel with soft carbonation.

Lovely! Oktoberfest kicked off today. What better way to celebrate than with a Munich original. No disappointments here....I really miss fest season in Germany, not just the beer, but the food too.

Pours a burnt orange/brownish color with about a half finger of white head that dissipates rather quickly.

Smells of biscuity German malts and faint earthy hops.

The taste is sweet with a mix of caramel toasty grains and even a little nutty.

The mouthfeel is pretty light with carbonation on the low to medium side, and finishes pretty clean.

Overall not a bad example of the style. It's not something I would seek out but a decent beer for a cool autumn night.
