Pours an amber color with orange hues. Has a good two finger head, (or three depending how you pour) off-white froth head that slowly turns into a thin lace.
There is a strong toasted malt aroma with hints of bread and caramel. A faint herbal hop pulls through the malt.
Toasted malt and caramel notes dominate the flavor. The hop is mild and spicy but do over power the malt. A faint hint of alcoholic sweetness ends quickly with a semi-dry malty finish.
The body is medium and mildly carbonated. A little slick on palate but super easy to drink.
Overall, this is a solid authentic representative of this style. As should be coming from the source and origin of the style. Drink up!

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.
