T: fruity and earthy hops up front, then caramel malt; a little metallic on the finish;

M: light to medium bodied; light to moderate carbonation;

O: less caramel malt in the flavor than most American Oktoberfests; the metallic finish was a little off putting;

A fantastic Oktoberfest, not overly strong, refreshingly smooth!
Dare I say, I like this just as much as Hofbrau.

Crisper and lighter bodied than other (American) Oktoberfests I've had, with a good deal of head. Pleasantly carbonated, very refreshing. Hater's gonna hate, but I think it's better than most American Marzens for my money. The only American one that rivals this that I have tried is Harpoon's.
