12oz bottle poured into a mug. The brew appears a polished clear amber color with a yellowish stained tan cap 2 fingers strong. The holds with a thin film throughout the entire duration. A swirl revives a finger.

The aroma has a hint of fruity alcohol note overtop a mild buttery diacetyl aspect. The malt is minorly toffee-like or caramel based with some hints of vanilla and citrus to fruity hop aspects. Minor carbonic and mineral notes are felt across the back.

The flavor has a bit of nuget character like caramel or toffee with a fresh grainy quality and minor buttery note. Some carbonic aspects push through with a mineral touch and fruity alcohol inclusion. Somewhat bready into the aftertaste.

This is medium bodied brew that is modestly carbonated. It is clean, crisp and easy drinking for the style. This is an Octoberfest that I can get behind and put a couple down. Fat heads sure knows how to bang out the lagers, well done.

This Oktoberfest is a nice-looking beer, a deep red-brown that's clear but strong. It keeps up a tan head very well, and it never really recedes to lower than one finger. It stays with the beer the whole way down, and drops patchy deposits of lacing while a consistent acitivity keeps it going.
This is one of the better Oktoberfests I've had altogether. It's got an excellent blend of toasty and nutty notes from the malts laying down a strong foundation, and as bready as any other out there. There's a touch of herbal hop and a light bitterness, pretty much an ideal level for the style, even giving a very light leafy/spicy mix.
This is a smooth beer with a nice firm crispness in an equally firm medium body. It's deep and pretty rich, all said.
