look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Poured from the tall-boy can into a pilsner glass. Body is a nice orangey-amber when backlit with a half-finger whitish head on top. Nice collar of lace up top.

S: A bit of caramel malt is about it. Not a particularly strong nose, though I'm probably serving this a tad bit on the cold side.

T: Sweeter than I like for my Octoberfests, but it's not cloying or bad in any sense - it just doesn't hit my "sweet spot" (so to speak). Modest caramel malt and a faintly nutty flavor in the back. FInishes modestly sweet but relatively clean. After a few sips I seem to get a faintly lemony finish. That provides some balance.

M: Light in heft with a faint slickness in the feel. Carbonation is appropriate - nice fine bubbles rise throughout, and on the palate it's OK.

O: A decent beer for what it is: a cheap Octoberfest.

Nice Oktoberfest brew, malty, semi-sweet, a nice head that sticks around with patchy foam islands like foam on the sea.
