In my opinion they nailed the color, body, and most of the flavors. Okto has all the subtle mineral, carmel, roast, and herbal qualities you look for in this style. The main thing that Im missing is in the finish. I really wish they would have lagered this beer but still, a decent session ale.

Amber color, white head. The aroma is dominated by nougat with hints of boiled vegetables. The taste is sweet and nutty with a growing bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Decent, but the taste almost felt more brown ale than märzen to me.

Bottled. Pours amber in color with a small off-white head. Bready malty and nuttyness in aroma. A bit bland, but some burnt malts and nuttyness is present in taste.

Bottle. Amber colour, filtered clear. Malty, slight murky, nose. Somewhat clean lagery, but strange. I was expecting a lagered beer, but I’m not really sure about this one. Seems too wild. And too much of greeny hops popping up to be really fest-like, to be drunk in masses. A bottle of this is fine, but liters wouldn’t do. Not sure what style this tries to be, but fails horribly.

Nice bright amber color, faint malt aroma, some sweetness comes through after getting warm,too light for a good Oktoberfest.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle Pours a dark slighly hazy amber/brown with only a minimal off-white hed that lingers nicely. Lacing is sparse and chunky. Aroma mostly of dark malts, and carmel. Flavor is malt and nuts but kind of thin. Just has that mass-produced taste. Carbonation is quite soft. Easy on the hops and the finish is lacking bitterness but a woody earthen taste is there.

Pours a transparent orange/red, with small white head. Aroma is light, of malt, cherries. Flavor is full of hops, bitter, citrus ending. A nice example of the style.

This has a bit more "hop" to it (get it?) than most Oktoberfest brews. Still, Widmer lives to disappoint. The worst thing is the odd metallic taste in the finish. Like putting a dime in your mouth. I apologize for that awful pun earlier.
