A: 4 - It pours out a dark mahogany with a small but persistent head and good lacing.
S: 4 - Excellent malt aroma, with a bit of kettle caramelization.
T: 3.75 - Emphasis is squarely on the malt, with low bitterness leaving the overall flavor fairly sweet. Malt tends towards caramel flavor, and finishes as it began, sweet.
M: 4 - Soft textured, creamy, not too much carbonation
O: 3.75 - Solid oktoberfest, though malt is not as complex as some examples.

Weighting (percentages): 20, 20, 40, 5, 15. Avg: 3.86.

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

A: Pours a dark, but clear brick red color. A one finger white head forms, and recedes in a minute. Light lace is left behind.
S: Big toasted malts with some caramel sweetness. Baked bread and biscuit. Even some chocolate in the nose.
T: Follows the nose. A big toasted malty flavor. Dry bread and biscuit at first. Though sweet caramel takes over. Light chocolate is intermingled. A malty treat.
M/D: A medium body and carbonation. Easy and smooth to drink. I can quaff several without a thought.

One of the better O'fests I have had from a Texas brewery. Tons of malty goodness. Well done Franconia, an something I would recommend.
