Bottle poured into a pint glass produced a finger worth of tan head that trailed off to nothing. All this was on top of a clear copper colored body brew.
Aromas of bread, malts and a light hop’s filled my nose. The flavor that was the most pronounced was the sweet malt not to much bitter .Not to the place where I would call it sticky sweet but sweeter than most Octoberfest’s. I also picked up some nuttiness in it as well. Typical larger mouthfeel smooth easy drinking a great representation of the style and another fine brew from Tröegs.

Bottle from Capone’s. Pours out a mostly clear amber color with a small white head. Aroma is of sweet malts with slight bitterness. Taste is sweet, slight fruit notes and some bitter grassy hops going on in there also. A decent example of an average style.

Bottle from Capone’s. Clear copper body with a thin white head. Very light buttery and cardboard aroma with some caramel, bread, and yeast. The taste is clean and crisp yet full bodied. Seems a bit oxidized with some butter and cooked veggies, but overall very east drinking and flavorful. Not bad for the style, but a bit run of the mill.

Golden color with a medium head. Aroma is quite malty and sweet with some light honey, bread, and mild citrus notes. Flavor is quite bready and sweet - lots of honey and some light hops. Solid finish. A very nice Oktoberfest brew! cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2008
