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.

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.
