Nice amber color with a big creamy head. Sweet malty flavor. Not the greatest Octoberfest you can get but it’s still pretty solid.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
No real aroma, faint malt and lager yeast detected. Pours a dark amber with a big ’ole head. Taste is sweet that leads to a malty backbone. Body is medium with nice carbonation. Overall, it is not one of the best Octoberfest out there but it is the most available. Does that count for anything?

9/14/13 poured from bottle into pint glass. Dark amber head which quickly dissipates. Light carbonation. Very subtle aroma of beer. Color is beautiful copper and maple syrup. Light but flavorful body. Very drinkable. Not outstanding but an excellent session beer. I would drink this all night.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle. Pours a transparent, copper/auburn with a half-finger, off-white head that thins to a film fast.
Aroma is large with big notes of caramel, bread, hallertauer hops, and a touch of raisins, dark fruits, sweet potato, and spices.
Taste is malty but balanced. A touch of caramel on the finish.
Low-medium body and carbonation. Fairly clean in the mouth with a refreshing finish makes this very drinkable.
Overall tasty and just what I’d expect from an Octoberfest beer. Probably would buy again next fall.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber. Not a very powerful aroma. Good flavor, malty and slightly spicy along with some honey/bready sweetness. Worth a try
