True unfiltered Munich. I don’t know why this is under Oktoberfest, it’s not their Oktoberfest offering. Amber, off-white head, caramel and malt taste, slight red apple. Yeast sediment at times, sometimes sour.
Tastes slightly of a compromise to please the masses, but nonetheless a fine offering. Too much bastardization of German practice in America, in my opinion.

Pours up a reddish orange with a wispy, off white head. The aroma is sweet malt, fruit, alcohol. Taste is a little thin, with sweet, fruity, alcohol. Bland, lacking depth and complexity. A little too sweet really for what it is. Non offensive, just nothing great.

12 oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Thanks to my friend Mike for the bottle. Labeled as Bavarian Amber Lager. Clear dark amber with just over a finger of off-white head. Aromas of malt, dark fruit, toasty notes, biscuit, some citrus. Tastes of toasty notes, biscuit, malt, some caramel. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Sweet and malty.

Pours a clear golden brown on tap with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of sweet malt and clean lager esters. Taste follows, solid for what it is, just not that exciting.

A good Amber, their lager is better. Pours a clear red. Smells slightly of nuts. Taste is basic red, some nuts. Well balanced finish. Had on tap at the Lighthouse Beer and Wine Festival in Wilminton, NC.

Really sweet lager. Clear reddish color. Big malt sweetness and caramel notices. Light, but sticky. Still a decent drinker.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2015
Location: Draft at CLT, 1/15/15
Aroma: Light caramel malt aroma, earthy notes, there is not a ton more than that here
Appearance: It pours a darker orange color, with a clear, small head, and basically no lacing
Flavor: It is pretty similar flavor-wise, malty and kinda sweet, with a mild bitterness
Palate: It has a decent feel to it, a light-medium body, and a fairly lively carbonation
I don’t have a ton to add to the overall. It’s an okay lager, but not a particularly great one.

Malty. Very little hop character. Crisp lager. Good mild flavor overall. Very approachable for those new to craft beer.
