Bought a 6 pack of this at a food lion in Roanoke, VA while in town for the weekend and thought I'd give it a try. Pour a very nice light brown/amber color into a typical pint glass. The head is kind of thin with an off white color. Smells kind of malty and nutty, like a Marzen/Oktoberfest kind of brew. Initial taste is pleasant with again, that Marzen flavor, finishesd a little bitter and dry. The lacing and carbonation were minimal. Overall this is a decent easy drinking beer with a little bit of work could make a great Oktoberfest.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Dark amber color. Slight caramel sweet taste. Leaves a slightly hoppy but mostly caramel aftertaste. I have had it on draft also and thought it was much better but that is usually the case for most beer.
