Bottle at Tank’s with Moose. Honestly, not a bad festbier at a all. Maybe a little heavier body than is typical but pretty tasty. Not a bad choice.

Very sweet and malty nose. Dark orange appearance is very attractive. Malty caramel/munich malt. They nailed it with this one. True to form and tasty and with the cooler nights I know Oktoberfest is coming soon

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, screw-top but thankfully brown glass. Nose of thin dark malt with earth and dark caramel and some roast, touch of candy sweetness, but dirty. Pours is a red-amber-orange gradient with a short off-white head. Thin watery body with light but effective bitterness, blink-and-you-miss it malt, touch of candyish sweetness but dries out quickly and thickly. Dirty and makes me check to see if someone dropped their cigarette butt in my glass, and aftertaste is stale.

Bottle. Medium/dark amber clear color. Mild flavor but smooth. No hop bite at all. Not a bad beer at all but not very flavorful overall.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Cheap. Pours a clear ruby color with a medium white head. A light malty nose, some skunkiness. Light fruity malts, some bitter skunkyness, metallic. Tastes a lot like Yuengling! Haha. Fond memories.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle, pours a burnt amber color with a nice head in pint glass. Very light malt flavor with hints of caramel. Not heavy tasting but a decent beer to sip. There are plenty other Octoberfest beers that beat this but it was worth a try.

From a bottle. Pours clear medium brown with a thin white head. Tastes very much like sweet corn and malt, kind of syrupy. Medium body and carbonation. Smells like sweet malt and corn syrup.
