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!

Looks mostly like a pale lager. Flavor is pretty plain, but also tasty. Some dryness in the middle that is probably the most noticeable trait. This grows on you.

Bottle from BevMo. Dark golden color with a hint if brown. Slightly sweet malty aromas. Lightly sweet with a slight grainy quality. Mild, refreshing version of the style. Good sessionable Okto.

Sampled @ GDBTF. Pours a lighter orange with minimal head. sweet, grainy malts, bread like, faint blueberry-like sweetness. Thin on the palate. Herbal hops towards the finish. Not the best of the style.

This is a nice spicy tasting beer. There wasn’t a lot going on flavor wise other than spice but it was enjoyable.

On tap at Redlefsen’s in Bristol RI on their Ocktoberfest night. A little darker and richer than the Spaten OktFest they had. The finish is a crisp acidic taste with hoppy notes. Aftertaste dry and long lasting. Is worth a shot, but i enjoy others much more.

Aroma is subtle and a little sweet. Flavor is stronger than the Warsteiner pils. Slight alcohol bite to it, with a maltier aftertaste. Nice beer to go with a hearty dinner.
