Pours orange to copper with a head that falls a bit quickly, but leaves lacing.

The smell is of steely caramel with nuts from the rich, complex malt.

The taste is of caramelized bread, some nuts and a touch of bitter noble hops in the finish.

It is smooth. Easy to drink.

This hits the style well. Very authentic. I am looking forward to drinking plenty of this during Oktoberfest season!

Sprecher Oktoberfest

Poured from a 16 oz bottle into a shaker pint. Served cold...

A) Cloudy amber with a nice creamy head. Nice retention... No lacing... Good looking brew right here.

S) Very malty... Bready with a little whiff of caramel sweetness.

T) Malt dominates the flavor, which isn't a surprise for the style, but I found this a bit grainy for my tastes. There is some light hop bitterness on the backend.

M) Medium bodied with light carbonation. Could have been a little more lively. Went down okay...

O) A pretty average O-Fest in my opinion.
