Great oktoberfest. I am especially impressed with this beer compared to most of the others in the St. Arnold collection. Hoppy/yeasty initial impression, deep aber brown hue, wonderful hints of hops and strength as the beer progresses. Still maybe not quite up there with the best of the German ones, but its pretty good.
Honey and malt. Sweet. Hint of spice. Light orange-amber with a foamy off white head. Moderate retention. Leaves a thin film on the surface. Velvety mouthfeel. Almost chewy while not being heavy. Lots of malt. Earthy backtones. A slight hit of hops. Very nice.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2017 A surprisingly good Octoberfest from Texas. Better Octoberfest than Sam Adams but not as good as Spaten JohananaV2 (278) - Hurst, Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2017
A good but lighter tasting Oktoberfest. It's a drop on the sweet side when it comes to finish, but on tap I imagine the flavors open up a bit more

Shared 12 oz. can. Amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma and taste of malt, bread, apple notes, grains. OK. darbeer75 (955) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - DEC 13, 2016
Aroma: lots of malt with some cereal; Appearance; clear amber pour with thin white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: extremely malty with slightly unpleasant background; Palate: medium body with long, overly sweet finish; Overall: not interested in getting again.

At a tasting, thanks, small bubbly head, a touch hazy and quite deep orange color, aroma of honey, cookies and caramel, flavor of caramel and hay with a jammy hint, light bitterness, a bit unpleasant sourness. Not too great. DSG (15119) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 12, 2016
