Draft. Medium brown with little head. Standard Oktoberfest aroma as taste but a little too sweet for my taste. Not terrible but wouldn't seek it out again.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mild toasty aroma. No hops on the nose. The appearance is a hazy amber. Flavor is malt forward with a low sensation of flowery hops. The bready malt flavor seems one dimensional. No esters. The finish is a little sweet and watery. Poor head retention. Overall, It is a poor example of the style---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light brown/gold with a white foamy head and good lacing. Aroma is Earthy and roasted. Taste is bread and hay up front with a lingering roasted nut flavor that lasts well after the taste is finished. Also tasting a bit of corn and caramel in the linger. Smooth flavor and mouthfeel. Not the most over the top offering, but not too offensive either. A case would work.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Original reviewed: 11/7/12. One of the last new Oktos for me this fall. I always try to snag some that I haven’t had before. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
Pours a dark honey-gold with a small sheet of lace on top. The nose is really simple with sweet grains, hay, biscuity malt. Good moderate body. Carbonation level is spot on. The taste is reminiscent of cider with some pale fruit character - sweet. Mild bitterness balances out the sweetness though. Caramel malt rounds this out making it a pleasure to drink.
This is one of the easiest styles for me to drink, and this one is no exception. Good beer.
