Bottle poured into the WABL tankard I got in the mail today to start Oktoberfest a little early I guess. Pours clear copper/orange with a small bubbly off-white head. Caramel, fresh grain, yeasty bread, a little bit of earth and grass. Carbonated.

On tap at Victory. Nothing stands out too much about it. Solid Octoberfest, but nothing spectacular. Nothing to write home about, but you can’t blame a great brewery for making a good version of a mediocre style.

aroma is grassy with honey and caramel apparent as well,very mild pumpkin like spice ...appearance is pleasant enough clear orange red brown color white head that does not last except for a thin white ring..taste is roasty-ish malts honey and grassy hops with a distinct wheat flavor as well..palate is smooth on the bottom tingly and bitter up top... an interesting and flavorful oktoberfest beer I think one of the better ones too neither the malty or bitter flavors are subdued

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle into pint glass. Pours a clear copper with amber hues. Initially a one finger off-white head that leaves a bit of spotty lacing. Very malty aroma of caramel, roasted almonds, fresh grains, biscuits, and wheat bread. Even getting a good amount of grassy hops in the nose. Taste is heavy toasted caramel malts up front with wheat, bitter earthy hops, and doughy bread. Long, lingering finish of toasty caramel malts. Clean and crisp. Medium bodied, slick texture, slightly higher than average carbonation. Highly drinkable. This is Oktoberfest done right! Maybe not the defining Oktoberfest beer, but should certainly be in the top 10 of any Oktoberfest best of lists.

Bottle @ home. Red amber color. Sweet aroma of caramel, bread, oranges, notes of toffee, spices and red fruits. Smooth oily texture, medium bodied, with med-high carbonation. Sweet flavor with caramel, red fruits, oranges. Drier lightly roasted and nutty finish with grassy bitterness.

On tap at brewery. Copper color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is malty with a bit of honey. Flavor is woody and malty with a finish that reminds me of fish bait. Not quite as disgusting as that sounds but just average.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a clear amber with a frothy white head. Aroma is caramel, cereal, roasty, nuts, spruce, earthy and sweet. Taste is sweet caramel, with a maple syrup kind of taste and a bittersweet finish. Feels smooth and the carbonation is just right.

Good beer, but nothing special. The flavors are light as is the aroma. Not the best octoberfest that I have had but it could be worse. Overall it is an average beer. Worth the try.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a great copper orange with minimal head. Flavor is smooth up front, an even balance of subtle hops and full bodied malt. Body is smooth as well, making this thoroughly drinkable. Flavorable isn’t overly memorable, but it’s great while it lasts. I’m not a big oktoberfest/marzen fan, but this is nice.
