Copper color with medium carbonation. Thin white head. Aromas of caramel malt and earthy hops. Flavors are caramel malt, dates, slight fruitiness, a hint of leather and earthy hops. Lively mouthfeel. Actually, not a bad Oktoberfest at all.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 14, 2015
Sampled on draft at the Short Pump location. Poured medium towards dark amber, nice white head. Aroma focused on caramel malts. Flavor matched, caramel and a bit toasty, a touch sweeter than expected. Hint of teutonic floral hops, but faint. Not bad, wish it had been drier.

On tap at the Fort Collins location. Clear bronze appearance with a patchy white head. Toffee, caramel malt and light butterscotch aroma. Hints of toasted grain and noble hop spice in the flavor. Medium plus sweetness with a hint of bitterness. Unbalanced, not bad though.

12FL OZ ($ ???) had this with my meal, was pretty good but I did switch to the IPA when it was done. Good beer but not very close to the real deal.
