This is one of the nicer Octoberfest brews I’ve had this year. Great color with a really smooth taste and nice finish. Now all I need is a couple of brats and I wil be all set!!!

Tap. Copper color with a small ring of white foam around the neck. Bread and caramel are all I get in the aroma. Taste is a little better. More bread and caramel, but some light fruity character is there too. Light to medium body. Pretty drinkable, and better than the sam Adams octoberfest, bug still just not my bag.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
"Oktoberest" 12 oz bottle.
This is one of the most attractive looking oktoberfest beers, it is a clear orange with a foamy ivory colored head.
The smell is very fruity, more so than most, but it works. It is tangy and it doesn’t embody the typical nuttiness of the oktoberfest.
The taste is more like your standard oktoberfest. It has some diacetyl and a very plasticy flavor. It is a mar on the smell and appearance.
It is probably one worth skipping.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The Oktoberfest aroma is of some quite bold malt and hops, typical of lagers, and not weak at all. Appearance is pale amber, with little head. The taste isn’t anything amazing, but it’s at the right level of sweetness and sourness. Good, appropriate palate. This beer isn’t the best of it’s kind, and not the best from Schell, but it’s still a nice beer to have every now and then.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from sampler pack. Good example of Oktoberfest beer - nice malty, bready, biscuity aroma and flavor to follow right along. Perhaps a bit milder in both than the best of the style, but still better than most examples.
