Pours a translucent yellowish brown with a fizzy white head that quickly fades. Lots of carbonation in this beer. Aroma of malt. Taste of malt, a touch of caramel, and a touch of hops with a not too sweet sweetness at the finish. Nice example of the style, I can’t slam this one too badly because it’s still pretty good despite not being one of my favorites.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A very nice crisp Oktoberfest style beer. Not as sweet as other Oktoberfests and is very smooth and drinkable. This is turning into a daily drinker while it is still available. Aroma is good caramel and aged - caramel finish that is neither too sweet nor too bitter.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
pours a clear crisp yellow with a quickly receeding, one finger, white bubbly head. aroma is pilsner malt and a touch of caramel, corn, hay and yeast. has a light to medium body with descent carbonation and a pinch of lacing. flavor is the same as aroma but stronger with some bready yeast. a different kind of octoberfest that i am used to but its descent. reminds me of a light dubbel.

Not much good here. A clear, golden beer with slight maltiness and not much else. About like a glorified Budweiser.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep yellow with a touch of amber color pour with a small ring of white bubbles for a head. Aroma is of light malts. Flavor is true to the aroma, dominated by the malts, just a touch of hops. A bit too carbonated for me my tastes. Quick clean finish. Overall an pretty good beer.

ORANGE BODY AND BISCUITY in it’s soul this is a decent octoberfest. orange cream flavor with a proper octoberfest taste. astringent carbonation. inadequate touch of hops in it’s finish. eehhh!
