A-Poured a clear rich amber, and formed a slightly off-white, creamy two-finger head that dropped off into a nice solid cap. Steady carbonation throughout. Nice plump group of bierfraus carrying steins on the label. Lacing is nice and lasting.
S-Toasted malt, light hazelnut.
T-Malty and light nut flavor. There is a hint of herbs, spice and fruit midway through, and a slight bit of hoppiness at the end. The aftertaste is light and clean. Nothing too interesting, but it's good.
M-Body is medium, carbonation is moderate and balances well with the flavors, complementing without overpowering.
D-I'm not blown away, but it's a nice classic brew that's a decent value. It is refreshing, and I expect it would pair with great versatility.

12oz bottle into a frozen mug.
A - Beautiful, crystal clear dark, autumnal amber. Pretty white head that dissipates quickly, leaving little lace.
S - Typical fresh "hay field" smell of a well-crafted euro-lager. Not special, just lagery goodness. Would love to smell a bit more crystal in this one.
T - The taste of any world class lager with some extra caramel and honey notes. The hop bitterness comes out a little more as it warms up.
M - A bit dry, especially at the end, but crisp and refreshing.
O - What a great lager! I'd only had Sam Adams Oktoberfest before this and I thought it was pretty darned good and looked forward to it every Autumn. This was just such an incredibly better Oktoberfest beer. Paulaner Oktoberfest is available at my bottleshop year round and it's going to be a trial to make myself wait until Autumn to buy it.
