From a distance, it looks like a Marzen/Oktoberfest. But when you get up close, its just brown water with a tad bit of hop and malt.

Aroma of ceral toasty malt,somewhat faint,but distinct,taste is also ceral toasty, very much on the light side,with a slightly metallic bitter taste,somewhat distracting on this very light beer. OK for the price

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. twist-off bottle, no freshness date, sampled in a lager glass.
Poured a clear golden hued amber with a frothy off-white head, decent retention, a little ringed sticking at the top of the glass.
Aromas of lightly roasted caramel, nutty, traces of sweet fruitiness and floral hops.
Smooth medium-light body, crisp and dry, easy quaffability. Sweet tasting, lightly roasted caramel with some pale malt sweetness. Sweet green grape fruitiness in the middle. Mildly spicy hops along with a dry nuttiness coming out at the end.
A passable Oktoberfest at an affordable price. Won’t knock your socks off, but will do in a pinch.

six pack from the local rip and run. Twist off cap, glad I used electrical tape for Mr. Coldbrewky. Pours a lovely translucent amber capped by a billowy off white head with good retention. Nose has a nice bread character. Taste follows in order with light bitterness and flowers. Body is a bit weak and watery. Tasty and easy drinking none the less.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Twist off Bottle via UDBeernut in box with returned growlers. A pleasant deep orange in tall glass with a thick white healthy head. Sweet malt, grass and tubas in the nose. Body is central with malt light graininess, and a bit wishy-wahsy water. Accordions and lederhosen optional. Body meanders back onto path for a crisp quick finish that leads directly to the next sip.
