Pours clear orangey-amber with an off-white head. Mild caramel aroma with some yeastiness. Palate was a bit on the thin side. Mild caramel sweetness with some oat notes. A touch of yeast in the finish. Not that great, but better than I expected it to be... bhensonb (15756) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Bottle from a real discount store. Pours amber with a creamy light beige head. Medium caramel aroma. Med body. Flavor is rather toffee, perhaps with a touch of diacetyl. There’s some decent noble hop bitter. It actually has some bitter in the finish. marcus (10671) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Pours clear amber with a thick white head and a light malt aroma. There is a thin toffee flavor with a slightly harsh bitter finish. AmEricanbrew (7011) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 16, 2011
Courtesy of Mora2000. Bright amber color/ ivory head. Mild grainy yeasty bready malt aromas. Lightly sweet, mild grainy pale malt flavors--and not much else. wlajwl (7066) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 1, 2011
No where near an authentic Octoberfest. A dark lager that isn’t horrible, but could be a lot better considering the amount of money that, could, be spent brewing it.

(12oz bottle, courtesy of Mora2000) Pours a clear golden body with a small white head. Aroma of earth, grass, and faint citrus. Subtle flavor of earth and straw. Essentially, not a far strech from some tap water. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2010
The beer pours a very light amber color with a white head. Definitely lighter than a lot of other beers in this style. The aroma is grain and grassy hops, nothing like I expected.
The flavor is also not what I expected. I get a lot of grain notes, as well as some lighter malts and grassy hops. I don’t get any of the caramel and toffee that I expect in marzen beers.
Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
Michelob makes some decent pseudo-craft beers, this is not one of them. blutt59 (6579) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2010
bottle thanks to mora20000, light brown amber color with a corny fruit and caramel aroma and flavor Cavie (4805) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2010
Bottle courtesy Mora2000. Dark orange color with very light carbonation. Aroma is light and faint. A hint of malts but there isn’t much there. Flavor is faint malts, light and dry. Meh. dyetube (1378) - Hurst, Texas, USA - DEC 20, 2010
This beer pours a medium amber with a thin white head. The aromas are bread, nuts. The mouthfeel is watery and sweet. Cheers!
