Color is a clear amberish brown, with a white head that fizzed away pretty fast and left some lacy patches.
Smell is faint roasted malt, a bit burnt caramel or caramel popcorn.
Taste form this was good, very smooth with good rich, sweet malt thats mild and pleasing. Some drying hop presence in the finish but is not strong enough. Thus bringing it to the feel, a little empty and slightly watery, lighter/medium body, smooth, clear and clean with some dryness and sweetness mixing at the end. Its a very drinkable beer.

Old Review
12 oz bottle I got in a sixer from Grub Mart in J'ville. $8.99 a sixer. Poured into a shaker pint.

A: This brea has a really nice brown/amber color to it. When held to the light, it is a perfect example of amber. The head is slightly off white and I got about 2 fingers on the pour. Retention is poor. Lacing is minimal. Not bad to look at.

S: Smell is mostly malt. Very sweet malt with some caramel hints. There is also a herbal tinge to the brew. I can't quite place it, but the herb is on the back end of the nose.

T: This brew is pretty sweet. The malt is very there, not very roasted. Just sweet malt. Caramel is there also to add to the sweetness. There is a breadiness to this brew that tries to counter balance the sweetness. Once again, an herbal/medicinal flavor comes in the back side of the flavor profile.

M: This is a light bodied brew that goes down pretty easily. Crisp and clean. Very little aftertaste, and that which is there is a malty aftertaste. This could be thicker. Don't get me wrong, it is closer to medium than a normal light bodied brew.

D: This beer is very drinkable because of its body. It is sweet, but not sickeningly sweet. Still tasty and nice on a cooler night. Not a great beer, but not bad.

This beer just reminds me of football! Poured a clear amber orange with red hints. The head was limited and no lacing at all. The smell was pretty malty with a bready nutmeg aroma to it. Strong on the spices. The taste is very balanced with a slight roasted flavor and noticeable spice flavors, specifically nutmeg and cinnamon. I can notice a smoothiness from the lager yeast that is exceptional to most Marzen/Oktoberfests I’ve tried. The hops are not really noticeable but blend well with spices.

The body is a good neutral, not overpowering, not too light. One thing I would like to see is less spice in the beer. That said this is one of the better Oktoberfest that I have had.

Best By February 2009; Sampled October 2008
Pours with a frothy, two finger thick, lightly amber tinged, tan colored head. The beer is quite clear and shows a full amber color as it sits on my desk. The aroma has some light spicy hop character to it up front, but this is quickly drowned out by a full malt character. Aromas of caramel, toasty grain and whole grain crackers. Actually there is a fair amount of hop character here that lightly spices the more dominant malt aromatics.

Spicy hop notes cut through the slightly more dominant malt character of lightly nutty, slightly toasty grain notes and a nice, almost rich, but not to sweet, caramelized malt note. As the beer warms up it becomes more malty and rich, but still retains its spicy hop character. Light toffee notes seem to subtly intrude into the mix of well integrated flavors that define this beer. I really am enjoying the body of this brew as well, it is quite quaffable, but has just enough heft to cling a bit to the palate and lightly envelope the mouth.

This is a nice Oktoberfest, I really like that it is still fresh and has a nice spicy hop character. I really also like how the toasted malt character accentuates a soft nutty note. Overall this is a really well constructed beer, incredibly well balanced between hop and malt. I would seriously have a hard time asking for more from an Oktoberfest (well an non-Rauch one anyway). This would be quite easy to quaff liters of this beer at a time.

Pours a little fizzy and head fades quickly. Smell is real good, sweetness with some spice, malts. Taste is great for a session brew, could absotively pound these. A solid brew from the worlds smallest Macro brewery.
