Looks like a good German example of what it is, a big frothy head and a bubbly golden liquid (and in an oversized mug due to this being the anniversary special I poured). Head drops slowly.
Smells nice of pilsner malts. Some graininess.
Plainly refreshing, some zest and mild bread. Somewhat sweet with a dry finish.
Stays carbonated well, feels crisp.
While lacking complex flavors, this Oktoberfest brew was just a highly drinkable brew as far as what you would expect if you were in Germany at the real deal. I kept forgetting this was 6% abv. Kudos for that. I wish i had a brat with this.

330 ml bottle into dimpled mug, best before 5/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear golden amber color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of bread, toast, cracker, honey, pear, apple, light caramel, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance of malt, yeast ester, and hop notes; with good strength. Taste of bread, toast, cracker, pear, apple, honey, light caramel, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of bread, toast, cracker, pear, apple, honey, light caramel, light pepper, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Damn nice balance and robustness of malt and yeast ester flavors; with no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and slightly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Oktoberfest style. All around great balance and robustness of malt and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
