Ok brew but not much to really brag about. Not much aroma. Little to no lacing. Sweet in taste and just an average / ok American Oktoberfest beer.

Not what one would expect from an Octoberfest. Pours light amber with no head. Taste is of light malts and finishes clean. Kind of a boring take on a good style.

This beer is one of the reasons I’m always wary of Oktoberfest’s when the fall rush comes out in September. This beer doesn’t taste like anything. The nose is good with some bread and spice notes and the body is a brilliant copper color with a watery, off-white head. Take a sip of it and you get a nice rush of carbonation but that is about it. There is a malty body with slight spicy notes but the beer falls just short of culminating and amounting to anything really. If you’re going down the aisle at the liquor store or perusing the tap handles at your local pub looking for an Oktoberfest, skip this one.
