Bottle; poured a clear amber color with a frothy white head. Aroma of wet bread, grain and a bit of off fruit. Flavor was just really bland; not overtly offputting, but very bland even for the style. Not any sweetness or caramel notes. Dry. Not very good.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 09240-DEO6. The pour is a rich amber-copper with a thin head. The aroma is slightly malted and has a hint of caramel in there. But it is somewhat appetizing. Medium mouthfeel. The taste is balanced with malts, caramel, and bitter hops. Overall it is mildly enjoyable.

Typical Marzen in appearance, dark copper body with with a whitish creamy head. A very pronounced metallic aroma. Tasted better than it smelled. Not bad for a mass-produced American Octoberfest. I enjoyed it.

Bottle. Pours a copper body with a white head. Malty adjunct body rice, caramel and grain. A paper like flavor with some sweet malt hints. Weak hay dry sweetness and a bitter grainy metallic finish. Freaking not so good.

joeyplush (630) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2009
Looks like a normal Oktoberfest at the pour but it ends there. Aroma is pure yeast, and the flavor is watered down and not much different from any other mass produced lager. Glad I only bought a single.

halfonit (1164) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 29, 2009
Has a descent amber brown color. Aroma is basically just malts and slight hops. Taste is mainly malts. Nothing much of an aftertaste. A pretty weak one from Michelob.

An octfest attempt from a beer company I do not like. They are however striving for a better beer and I can totally respect that. This needs more work.
