Maybe it was me, maybe it was the beer. But this is the best Oktoberfest beer I have had. At least this year.

Color: Dark caramel foamy head which remained pretty consistent.

Smell: Caramel, nice sweet bready aroma.

The flavor is there which is nice, beyond the vapid typical Oktoberfest. The caramel is there, but not overpowering. Clean. Finally a clean tasting Marzen without too much of the cloying nasty almost artificial caramel flavors.

Overall: Easily the best Oktoberfest I have had. The price was not bad either. I paid more than most, but really it was only a buck more than the Great Lakes version, which to me is a huge disappointment based upon the reviews.

Crystal clear dark gold topped with a high, lumpy head of foam. Deep fresh malt, lager yeast, and slightly husky grain make up an authentic aroma that is just rich enough and features a wonderful warm, toasty bread smell. Nice toasty, bready, just-sweet-enough malts in the flavor as well, a flash of noble hops, clean lager character, and drying out slightly in the finish to dampen any lingering sweetness. Medium bodied and smooth. Very nice.
