Poured from a bottle into a dimpled mug

The beer pours a slightly hazy, orange/amber color. A vigorous pour yielded a fluffy white head that dissipated quickly, leaving behind little to no lacing

The aroma is faint and fairly typical of the American versions of this style, mostly sweet maltiness with a generic hoppy undertone.

The flavor is bready, and overly sweet with a grassy hop bitterness. A bit light for the style and overly carbonated. Somewhat one dimensional, and underwhelming.

Overall, I am not terribly impressed with this beer. No where near as good as its German counterparts...

This beer poured a deep copper color with a thin white head that dissapated quickly.

There was very little aroma, but had some faint hop notes.

The initial taste was lightly sweet. Ther was a light malty taste with a hint of caramel underneath some faint hops in the middle. The beer finished with a sweet hoppy taste.

Mouthfeel was crisp with above average carbonation.

Overall this was a decent Oktoberfest. Seemed like a light version of the style. Very drinkable, but not at all complex. Even lighter floaters than a Spaten Oktoberfest.
