look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Served on tap in a 1 L stein

Appearance – The beer is served a deep amber-reddish color with a small fizzy white head. The head has a decent retention however, slowly fading over time to leave a very light level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is rather sweet overall with a decently strong caramel and buttery toffee smell. Mixed with these aromas are a good deal of a bready smells with notes of toasted malt and some spice aromas of nutmeg and cinnamon.

Taste –The taste begins with a sweet caramel and lightly toasted malt flavor. As the flavor moves forward some notes of lighter fruits and some nut comes to the tongue. The sweet taste intensifies in caramel flavor and is complemented by some toffee. Spice flavors of some cinnamon and nutmeg come to the tongue more toward the end and are joined by a lighter hop taste of some citrus and herb and an increase in the roasted malt flavor, leaving a pleasant and smooth sweet and lightly roasted flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side as well. Both are fitting for the style making for a nice easy drinking but well supported Oktoberfest.

Overall – A rather enjoyable and tasty Oktoberfest with a nice sweet and decently roasted taste. Paulaner is a classic brewery for a reason; they make good stuff.
