Pours a nice copper orange with a rocky head. Leaves a bit of lacing and holds a very nice collar. Smells very toasty and bready with slight sweet toffee. Gorgeous malt profile. Very very toasty and loaded with bready qualities. Only a very mild sweetness, despite enormous malt flavor, they must have thought of me when they made this. Then through the somewhat dry finish spicy, very floral hops emerge against a backdrop of slowly fading almost burnt toasty malt. Mouthfeel is medium with medium low carbonation, and very creamy. Great balance, hugely drinkable. Superb.
This is exceptional Oktoberfest, at least this year.

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.
