12 ounce bottle. Shaker glass. Dark golden thin head. Not sure on the aroma. Mainly just a bit of caramel and malt. Not much else. Not very good for this style.

The colour is amber with a white head. The aroma is of sweet malt and grain. The flavor is fruity hops with a bit of grain and some maltyness to it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark orangish with a mostly receding light tan head. Aroma of sweet grainy malt, toffee, and bready lager yeast. Taste is slightly metallic, sweet, and sticky caramel. Mouthfeel is full bodied, slightly sticky with lush, slight overcarbonation. Didn’t care for this one. A bit too sticky and artificial tasting.

Amber bodied, frothy white headed, flavorful malts with a nice finish. Good for an American macrobrew...more hops than the "normal commercial" beers, I’d put it beside some Samuel Adams brews because of that. Bottle says "brewed in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin by 73 people who care." Well thanks, guys.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Red with no head by the the it got back to my table. Wet aroma with some amberish malts. The palate starts thin and gets a bit thicker but ends watery again. The flavor is typical ameri an octoberfest but has some strange hop bitternes at the end. Maybe a little nut n there.

I give this beer props for being more flavorful than beers produced by most large American breweries. I drank this side-by-side with a Beck’s Octoberfest. I wouldn’t put it on the same level as German Oktoberfests, but would be hard pressed to find a better, more flavorful beer for around $6.00 a six-pack.

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.
