Poured from a brown bottle with a label featuring an army of portly German beer maids toting steins of beer. Great lable.
An agressive pour yields a nice fluffy beige head that dissipates fairly quickly. Color is a nice clear copper - perfect for an Oktoberfest.
Spicey hops and caramel and raisin malts on the nose. The taste is mostly malts with a clean sweet grainy graham cracker and caramel flavor. Also hints of raisin. Nice hops crispness in the finish, but this is definitely on the sweet side as is typical for the style.
Very smooth almost oily mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. This beer is very sessionable. Very good representation of the style.

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.
