look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours cloudy orange amber color with a small white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of pear, apple, caramel, toast, biscuit, herbal, and light nuttiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good strength and balance. Taste of caramel, toast, biscuit, nuttiness, brown sugar, apple, pear, and herbal. Lingering notes of caramel, toast, biscuit, nuttiness, brown sugar, herbal, and light fruits on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice flavor robustness and balance; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with almost zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Oktoberfest! Great flavor balance and robustness; and very smooth to drink. Really enjoyed this one, definitely exceeded my expectations.
