Pours a dark, hazy amber with a quckly diminishing head. The flavor is slightly malty with some tongue tingle. This is a nice session brew.

Bottle, at home.
Dark orange with beige head, immediately gone, modest lacings. Aroma moderate malty, moderate to heavy hoppy. Flavor moderate sweet, moderate to heavy bitter, long duration. Light to medium body, oily, soft carbonated. Not a typical Oktoberfestbeer!

Very clear copper color pour with a thin wispy white head. Sugary caramel candy grainy malty aroma has a touch of dry European hops. Starts with some sweet, but thin, grainy malty body and some mild hoppy balance along with a hint of tartness. Not very true to style, but not all that bad either.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: a nice Oct. A light amber colour with a somewhat less than full flavour. A decent attempt, but you can do better for an Octoberfest.

On tap at Brooklyn Brewery, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY. Clear amber hued beer with small off-white head with good lacing. No discernable carbonation. Aroma of sweet malt and hops. Light-to-medium bodied with sweet malt flavor and finishes with lingering hop bitterness. Rather thin textured and watery flavored. A drinkable but weak Oktoberfest beer.
