Bottle. Orange in color, decent off white head, and clear. The smell is caramel, sweet, toast, cereal, and malt. The taste is much the same as the smell, slightly dry astringent finish.

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.

Funky scents almost like plastic and feet. Taste is not much better, bland taste.

12 ounce bottle, poured a copper color with a nice light tan head, smoky aroma of some hops, caramel, and malt. Flavors are same. Not bad, not bad at all.

CAn’t get excited about this one. Appearance of a pale lager. Blah Weak Octoberfest if this is trying to be one and I am not sure that it is. Tough aroma Does have a smoky thing going on in the finish and a sharp bitter bite perhaps Head stayed with it the whole glass. Got better as it warmed a bit perhaps I had it too cold. or a buzz was kicking in. Just not much going on. Some malts may try again but this one was pretty much unforgettable and on the weak side.

amber, orange in color.
medium sweetness, lightly bitter, somewhat complicated malt flavor mixed with light clean hopping.
Kind of like a confused version of a better beer with that sort of craptastic bitter taste common of low grade marzens.
