Tap at the brewery. Medium amber color, not much nose. Most surprising to me was the presence of coriander flavor in the beer. Not bad, but not my go to choice for an Oktoberfest beer

I haven’t tried many Octoberfests because of my IPA snobiness (which I’m outgrowing), but I enjoyed this one. A very pleasant aroma for a lager. Tastes slightly sweet, malty with nice hops bitterness in the background. Very drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a can poured in a shaker. Appearance is fizzy slightly orange amber. Flavor is thin, fairly carbonated, sweet, slightly bitter with moderate alcohol note. Nothing special, floral hop notes on finish. Unexceptional Oktoberfest, was built up like this was a really good one, but it didn’t impress. Still drinkable though.

12oz can. Clear copper pour with a medium beige head. Aroma of malt and lager yeast, along with some caramel. Caramel malt flavor with some bready character before a semi sweet finish.
