1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can from local Smithís. What others have said. Tastes like a very flat, very boring Oktoberfest. Not exactly terrible - this wins hands down over any typical American macro lager - but in a world of so much good beer, why waste the time? Oh well, Iíll save the rest for driving off evil spirits when the relatives visit.

This beer is a disappointment, very pretty color, good head from sloppy pour. Tastes like water that had turned stagnant.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Btl pours clear deep reddish brown color with a thick creamy tan head. Hangs around for awhile. No lace on glass. Smells of floral hops and light maltiness and a hint of chocolate. Tastes of sweet malts and faint chocolate with a very mild hop bitterness. Light body, watery texture medium carbonation. No flavors stand out, they are extremely mild. Overall a pretty bland, average session beer. Its not bad I just expected more.
