Draft. Caramel brown color with white head that lingers. Medium carbonation with malt flavor. This is a decent version of the style but not among the best German brews.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: 1” off white fluffy head recedes moderately with gracious amounts of lacing. Lovely reddish brown color with moderate carbonation.
Aroma: true to the style the malt aroma is dominant but there is a nice floral hop in the smell as well.
Mouthfeel: medium body and sticky with a nice dry finish.
Flavor: Just awesome. Lovely combination of the roasted malts with caramel and a bit of chocolate. The hops are well balanced to the malt and round this beer out nicely.
Overall: Excellent job Harpoon!

Tap, free sample at Downtown Produce. A pleasant surprise in January. Copper color with a large head, it was from a keg in the store, with a soft bread aroma. Sweet taste, mostly of caramel than malt, with a dry finish. Better than average Oktoberfest beer.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
When it comes to a decent Octoberfest, this beer is kind of in the middle of the bunch. It pours a medium amber color with a nice scent of spices that scream Octoberfest. It has a slight bitter taste that full of spice and yet smooth to drink. My only complaints are I think it’s a little too smooth needing more texture to it and the slight after taste it leaves.
