COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amber in color. This medium bodied beer has achieved its impeccable taste by balancing the roasted malt flavor with the perfect amount of hops. Having a rich textured palate with an underlying sweetness true to tradition.

12 oz green bottle picked up at the Coop tonight poured into slim hefe glass. 2 finger head drops leaving spotty lacing.. crystal clear lite amber brew. Very clean toasted malts dominate the aroma.. not much else to talk about here. Toasted malts again are in the front.. sorta a husky note.. toasted bread with just a touch of earthy hoppiness... a bit creamy with a lite/medium body.

Light copper from the bottle with foamy off white head. Malty aroma not much more. Malty semi sweet flavor that blends beautifully with the noble hops. Feels full bodied with light carbonation. Really enjoyed this beer, exemplifies the old world malts well. Went perfectly with an outdoor lunch in the spring. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a 50CL bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a nice smell of malt, caramel and grass. Appearance- A clear amber color with a small white head. Taste- Hops, caramel malt and some fruit for a backdrop, good flavor. Palate- A light to medium bodied beer with light carbonation and a dry finish. Overall- A nice Oktoberfest beer, I would drink this again.

Pours deep, clear amber with thin head. Aroma of bread and taste of caramel. Finish is clean and cleansing. This is highly drinkable in quantity and my go-to for the style.

12 oz. bottle. Nose of toasted caramel, hay and yeast. The flavor is rich and bready with a touch of toffee and honey. Just enough bitterness to keep the sweetness in check. Great balance. Delicious and drinkable. Overall, an excellent and authentic Oktoberfest brew.
