12 oz can from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Disappointing on taste and body. Didn’t seem to capture the German taste or spirit.

Similar to a lot of OKtoberfests, don’t have really anything to say wrong with it. Drinkable but not too exciting.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 Fl. Oz. Can. Poured clear, copper, with a small off white fizzy head that left rather quickly. Aroma is a it weak, fruit, a bit of malts and some grain. Taste is malty and sweet, with some hoppy notes that give it a light bitter finish. Drinkable, and enjoyable, in my honest opinion not bad at all.

Transfer from BA review on 9-21-13-
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served an orange amber color with a small fizzy white head. The head fades rather quickly leaving just a tiny level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is rather light overall consisting of a bit of a ready and lightly roasted smell. Along with these aromas are some light notes of light fruit and some herbal hop and spice.
Taste – The taste begins with a biscuit and bready malt flavor with a hint of roast and a moderately strong caramel sweetness. The caramel takes on more notes of a brown sugar sweetness as the favor advances with the roast getting slightly stronger as well. In the end a little bit of a spice flavor of cinnamon and nutmeg as well as a bit of a citrus hop come to the tongue in the end leaving a lightly roasted and malty flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is average in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is average as well. Both are nice for the easy drinking and lightly roasted tastes of the brew.
Overall – A nice Oktoberfest that is on the slightly drier and lightly roasted side. While not spectacular it is a rather nice drink.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden color with a bit of an amber tint and an off white head. Color is much lighter than the norm for this style. Aroma is bready with toasted malt and caramel finishing with floral herbal hops. Smooth creamy feel in mouth. Caramel malty start with toffee notes finishing with herbal spicy hops. Flavor really improves as it warms.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The body has a beautiful orange amber colored body with just the slightest haze. From the aggressive pour I got a small creamy off white head. The head fades to thin covering that just hangs on to the end. On the glass it makes lots of slick spotty lace. Its aroma is very malty in a nutty sweet, bready way. There are also notes of sweet floral/spicy hops. I get a lot of bready and nutty maltiness throughout with mellow candy like sweetness. Hops add some floral spicy flavor, a little bitterness and a very slight sour note to the finish. It’s a good solid medium body with a smooth lightly carbonated mouth feel.
