look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a semi-cloudy, deep golden amber color with a quarter of a finger of off-white head that completely dissolved away to nothing.

Aroma: Malty, very malty, but also very floral. Lots of cover and surprisingly, alcohol notes.

Taste: Very tasty! Malty, with lots of freshly baked bread and soft pretzels, but spicy too. Notes of clove, cinnamon, all-spice, nutmeg, black pepper, clover, honey, caramel.

Mouthfeel: Medium, with practically no carbonation, which is odd, as past year’s versions were extremely carbonated. With an ABV of 5.8%, there is just the slightest hint of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a very good Oktoberfest beer. I really enjoy the spiciness of the beer which is nicely balanced with a great malty backbone. Delicious. Always an addition to my Oktoberfest rotation.

Honestly there's not really much to say about this beer on the positive side. Very bland for an Octoberfest. Pours copper color, more carbonated than most micro domestics. Slightly sweet smell, very German style taste and might even use malts from there which is the only thing powerful about the beer. Watery body doesn't leave much on the palate after going down. No distinct note of hops.
