This smooth brew ushers in Autumn with an invitingly tawny color complemented by an assertive maltiness. A noble crispness from German and Czech hops completes this very traditional lager-style beer.

Just ok Oktoberfest style lager. Malty sweet but lacking that crisp noble hop note to finish. Meh at best. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle. Copper colored with a medium-sized bubbly beige head. Toasted grain malt aroma. Sweet caramel malt flavor is pleasant and smooth. Toasted malt and noble hops balance nicely in he midtaste. Nice crisp bitter hops in finish. Tasty.

solidfunk (5953) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 16, 2014
This ones a little off, slightly on the foul side. Not even quite fit for drinking by the stein. Some kind of astringent off taste in finish here. Pours orange without much head or lacing. Bottle at Crios.

Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a light copper color with a one finger head of billowy white foam. The head fades super-fast leaving just a tiny bit of foamy lace on the surface of the brew. Smell – The aroma of the beer is strongest of a caramel and bready smell with some notes of toasted malt and a bit of a grainy smell. Along with these aromas comes some lighter smells of a grainy and light earthy floral and nutty smell. Taste – The taste begins with a roasted malt taste as well as a decent bready taste. Along with these flavors are a rather decent showing of a caramel and toffee sweetness with a decent showing of spice flavors of a more nutmeg and coriander nature. The sweeter caramel and toffee grow stronger to the end with a little bit of a fruity flavor of an apple nature also joining the profile. The roasted flavors fade a bit all while a more grainy and light floral flavor comes to the tongue, and with an increase in the spice flavors of the brew, one is left with a rather sweet, almost cloyingly so, and moderately spiced flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly thicker side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side overall. The thicker body really accentuated the quite sweet flavors of the brew and while traditionally good for the style was a bit much for the mix of cloying and spice flavors. Overall – Not really an all that fantastic Oktoberfest. Too cloyingly sweet and just not balanced at all.
