Pours a bright copper color with a fluffy head and lacing. The aroma was sweet -almost cloyingly so. The beer began and finished with a big malt sweetness that is more in line with a Bock. Malt and sweet toffey dominate. The mouthfeel was smooth and rich, and the beer finished sweet. Just a small touch of alcohol could be detected.
The beer is great, but I was expecting a classic Oktoberfest taste profile. A good Okotberfest should feature a big malt foundation, but it should also be tempered by a decent dose of noble hobs to balance things out. As stated earlier, this would be a great Bock.
