355ml bottle. Pretty generic Oktoberfest. Some nice malts and herbal hops, but nothing that makes it stand out.

Bottle. This is a pretty flimsy Marzen. Nothing super special here. Grab an Ayinger.

12oz bottle. Pours a light amber color with a light tan head. Not much aroma. Some sweet malt and faint spices. Taste of bitter piney hops, caramel and slightly roasted malts, and spices.

Appearance: I got lazy and enjoyed straight from the bottle, but I Googled me a pic ... doesn’t look much like an Octoberfest. A bit light. Nice lacing in the bottle.
Smell: Well, it’s an amber. Not shy, and gets you with the malts. The hops are certainly in there, but you can get an idea of what kind of beer this is just from a quick whiff. Pretty good stuff.
Taste/feel: As an Octoberfest, it’s average. As an amber, it’s average. To me, this tastes quite a bit like Boston Lager, but missing a certain "oomph" that Sam Adams puts in that beer. This is still a pretty nice beer, and I wouldn’t mind having myself another. A nice bit of malts, and a refreshing beer all the way. I dig it.
