Brown beer in my dimpled stein; nice solid brown hue, clear and lively in the glass. Not much head. Thin and wispy and doesn't last. Really nice color, especially in the right glass. Smell is surprisingly clean and dominated by grassy hops. Slightly toasty malt aroma in the background, a very mild breadiness. Boring aroma, and not what I expected from an German brewed Oktoberfestbier. Taste is a little better, more distinct malt taste, but still overly hopped with grassy/hay tastes. Malts taste slightly adjunct are are thin and static. Fairly boring tastes. Still, is pretty balanced and not terrible to drink.

Picked up a 6 of this at my local grocery store.

Poured a golden brown with a finger of white foamy head. Retention is poor, lacing nonexistant.

Smells of light malt and grain. Nothing special.

Taste is fairly crisp, sharp and dry earthy hop with a mild sour malt.

Mouthfeel is fresh and crisp, light bodied, good carbonation.

Drinkability here is decent, not the best Oktoberfestbier I've had this year but for the price it'll do. Great with wings.
