This one poured a murky light brown color with an off white head. Aroma was of caramel and toasted malts, and light nuts too. Flavor is a bit grassy, nutty, and light sweetness and toast. Not sure why this is listed as an oktoberfest and not a brown ale. But either way simple, drinkable, and good for the style.

This has got to be one of the better fest beers I’ve ever had. It was great right from the start. However, I never would have guessed this was an octoberfest, heheh. This is just a simple great easy to enjoy mild brown beer with lots of manners. I really liked it. Of the 10 beers I tasted tonight this was the best far and wide. Yes, think about a nice american dark lager and really mild and friendly porter. Good from start to finish, lovely vacation from a bunch of beers that were trying to be something. Really fun overall impact and finish.

Pours a light amber brown. Smokey aroma taste is clean and dark. Smoked malt roasted notes. Crisp finish
