This beer lacks the quality of some of the traditional oktoberfests but it’s a good start

A - reddish orange tinge no head at all - thin layer of bubbles that dissipated immediately
S - the faintest hint of sweetness and a tiny bit of malt but barely any smell at all
T - Sweet almost no bitterness at all - a tiny bit of citrus and barely any malt at all (until it warmed up a bit then the malt came through better) - can’t taste any hops - almost sugary. Got a little less sugary and a bit more flavor as it warmed up. Definitely needed to warm up a bit to let more of the flavor and depth come through. The sugar mellowed and darkened as it warmed up.
M - nice set of tight bubbles that keep it perky. Really enjoyed the carbonation.
D - Not much depth but it is tasty - very smooth and light , has just enough body. Could drink several of these without feeling full over overloaded. Would drink again but would wait for the beer to get more close to room temperature first.
Would probably go well with Chinese, Japanese, or Thai food - though I have no way of knowing this

Sweet tasty and refreshing. Felt off style though. The beer tasted of berries and was slightly hoppy.

This is a solid beer, very smooth and relaxing, excellent color, wonderffull aroma. Malts tickle the front of my tongue, but exhibits a clean finish. I’ll definatly buy again. WUNDERBAR!

Most impressive thing about this beer is the color. The smell and taste remind of that sweet taste left in your mouth after a night of drinking whiskey and not brushing before passing out on the floor.

Pint at the Anchor. Less malty than your typical Oktoberfest. 0 head and very light in color for the style.

roasty malt flavor, lightly carbonated, light nose, abrupt bitter finish. Not my favorite.
