I love Oktoberfest beers and this one is the best of them. Though it's better some years than others, I always drink plenty of it. Might have been a little lacking this year, as a matter of fact, but I still love it.

Poured a light brown color. Not a very pleasant smell. Skunky smell. Tastes good though. One of the better tasting Oktoberfest beers I've had.

Pours a straight-ahead amber with a thick head of foam. Tons of impressive effervescence, too, which is a neat touch. Impressive tree-line and loopy lace.

Aroma is crisp and lager-grainy, simply put.

Taste is equally as crisp and malty, even a little sweet but still well-balanced. I get some toastiness, some toffee, and plenty of flavor packed into here. Overall, as easy-to-drink Oktoberfest that I can see being perfect for bierstubes or Oktoberfest celebrations.
