pours an amber red color with a slightly off white creamy head...it looks delicious sitting here. malty sweet aroma with some bread and hazelnut mixed in. Creamy body, not too overly sweet but can certainly notice the malt, nuttiness is apparent as well as some estery flavors. Very tasty Octoberfest compared to some of the others i’ve tried.

When I think about the style, this beer will come to mind. It is made to style. Aroma of sweet malt(carmel) and noble hops. Translucent amber color smal white head. Syrupy bodied. Sweet carmelly finish. Thanks, Jason

Decent sized off-white and creamy head. Nice clear, slightly dark amber body. Sweet malty aroma... interesting. Can’t tell what it smells like. Its sweet bread dough I think, with a little bit of spice. Flavor allows a slight chocolate malt hint to break through the bread overtone. Slight hops wrap the tongue in the finish. Pretty good.

Poured bright red/ambe with thin tan head...smelled of malts and bread...taste was still a little thin, but hops were present to balance all of the malts out (unlike most Octoberfests)...don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t hoppy, just balanced for a change...

Stale malt. Not much going on here. Needed a bit more of the cookie, dough flavors to kick through.

This beer poured a nice clear amber color with a thin white head. The flavor was malty, bready, and medium-full bodied. The finish was a bit sweet and this was a great Oktoberfest.
