COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

(bottle) Deep amber-tawny complexion with traditional white head. Thin aroma of malt. Smooth and mildly malty. Nice palate that is easy to session. One of the better domestic Oktoberfest beers.

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

solidfunk (6480) - 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.
