Really not much good going on here. Not much flavor at all. Difficult to appreciate any malt flavor.

Pours a clear copper color with a small off white head. Mild sweet malty aroma with some hoppy notes coming through. The flavor is malt, some mild hops and a mild sweetness. OK not great.

Clear brunt orange with a thin sticky white cap. Biscuity lager and classic Oktoberfest malty nose. Crisp and dry flavor with marzen malts and a touch of doughy, dry toffee and a little English muffin.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Has a nice fall amber color. Aroma seemed faint. A bit too much carbonation; tasted slightly like seltzer water mixed with beer. To be fair, it could have been a bad bottle in the singles craft beer section at the grocery store I bought it from. It happens. I'd try a couple more for a 2 out of 3. Malt flavor is nice with a slightly bitter finish. I wonder if this Oktoberfest might taste better warm vs cold. Seems the cold may dull the flavor.

Bottle from Walmart. Clear copper in color. Malty nose with a hint of sweetness. A little hoppiness as well. Malty flavors with a bit of cereal graininess. Lightly hoppy finish. Decent okto.

12 oz bottle- Pours clear autumn amber with a small off white head. Aroma is spicy bready rye, light hops, caramel malt. Taste is bready rye, dry bitterness that balances the sweet caramel malt. Body is a bit too thin, watery, but super easy drinking. Not bad actually.

Bottle. This is my favorite Oktoberfest beer. Copper in color. Toasted malt aroma with the same in taste. Lightly bitter with a light wood aftertaste. Very Good Beer.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This beer is one of the few things that get me excited about fall. Perhaps not as malty, and perhaps more hoppy than a genuine Oktoberfest marzen, this beer comes pretty close, and what’s more, it’s likely more palatable to our hops loving north American palates. This beer marries the caramel malt forwardness of a true Oktoberfest beer with one I’ll enjoy having in multiples. Great job leinies!
