I love oktoberfests and I was a little disappointed by this one but it's still pretty good. Pours a clear amber orange color with two fingers of head, modest retention and lacing.

Smell is relatively faint but definitely dominated by caramel. A little grain but mostly caramel sweetness.

Taste is mostly the same. Lots of caramel, a little grain but mostly like caramel water.

Mouthfeel is ok- medium body, moderate carbonation. I wouldn't get this again- barktoberfest is richer and more complex so if you're in ohio do that or Great Lakes.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

c. Nice golden amber color. Great for the style. On lighter side. Nice light head. Low carbonation.

s. Slightly off in smell. Not sure what it was.

t. Really good taste. Nothing amazing but better then most.

m. Nice mouth feel, light feeling.

o. I would buy this again. I expect when it cools off a bit this will be a great beer ti sit outside drinking with the changing leafs.

I got a finger of off white head. The body was the rich orangey brown of fall leaves. Head retention and lacing were nothing of note.

Up front this beer was malty and caramelized well. It had strong toasted and earthy notes as well.

Taste on this was really to the nose.

This beer was medium bodied. It didn't leave any film.

Solid beer, but a little transient on the palate.
