look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

12 oz bottle into a pint glass

A - Rich, creamy 2 finger khaki colored head that is somewhat slow to dissipate. Some noticeable sediment with a moderate carbonation. Brownish copper in color. 3.75/5
S - Malt, malt, and more malt with a hint of earthy hops. Caramel sweetness with a bit of white toast. 4.25/5
T - Malt forward. Caramel. Grainy. Floral hops. Toast. Honey. Every so slight spicy/peppery note. Just a touch of bitterness on the finish. 4.5/5
M - Medium body in the beginning and middle with a very dry finish. Leaves the mouth feeling very dry. Lingering bitterness. 4/5
O - Excellent flavors out of this Oktoberfest. Taste follows the nose nicely and more complex than most Oktoberfests that I have tried. 4.25/5

T 4 - caramel, toasted grain, toffee, yeast, nice moderately bitter spicy finish
M 4.5 - smooth, fuller body, pleasant carbonation, clean finish
