Backyard Oktoberfest Review:
Pours a copper color with an ok amount of head. This beer was really lacking any sort of smell. There was a slight malty smell but that really only presented itself as the beer warmed up. The taste is what you would expect from the smell. You can tell it is a beer but it is really lacking any real flavor. There is a slight malty taste with a bit of bitterness on the finish but nothing to write home about. The mouthfeel is average carbonation and it is very easy to drink which helps.

Wow, America! This is another Oktoberfest style I haven't tried and it's a great beer. Bready, oatey malt and with a small kick of hop. Make me wonder what is going on in Texas? Argo's approval!

This beer has good head and lacing. It has a good aroma and a nice "hearty" taste to it. This beer has a nice taste, not very sweet. The appearance is a nice copper color resonant with Oktoberfest beers.

Good head and lacing - nice floral aroma - good color - Biscuit taste - smooth and malty. Not as sweet - a little more bitter. I'm a fan.

Better Oktoberfest than previous beers I've had. Would go great with sausages and brats.
