I tried this beer in a bar last year and thought it was pretty good. I purchased a 6 pac and had a bottle. I was not impressed, very little flavor and tasted watered down.

(on tap) Pours amber with a white head. Aroma only contained what smelled like a cheap apple cider. Taste was just a little malty sweet, with a wheaty finish.

[On tap] Pours amber with a small white head. Aroma was very weakly of apple cider. Taste was malty, a little apple, some faint chemical bitterness towards the end. Medium body. Short finish. Average.

Very suprised this isn’t rated higher. I love the Oktoberfest beers and I’ve had many in my day and this one is still my favorite. One of the few beers my father and I agree on being top of the line!

This is a middling "light" version of a Marzen. It’s nowhere near strong enough in aroma or flavor to truly be an Oktoberfest, but it’s pretty decent when September rolls around and there aren’t other Marzen options available.

jarlbartar (89) - Janesville, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 27, 2007
Pours an amber body, with an off white head that dissapates quickly. Aromas of rich spices and roasty malts. Taste had some roasted malt character with some clove undertones. Not bad, average at best for the style.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 25, 2007
The Dan journal #49. Tasted 10/22/06. 12oz bottle. Clear and amber. Spiral white head. Bready vegetal spicy nose. Notes of vanilla and caramel. Light to medium bodied. Palate hits sweet then dulled malts. Bright bitter finish that ebbes out into a sticky aftertaste. Abrasive and not very smooth transitions. Meh...

A poor example of this style, which is hard to do. Fairly light caramel aroma and taste. Not overly sweet but than again neither is water. Pass.
