We had this beer on tap at Bells. It is a lovely orange super clear beer with a white head. If I had one serious quibble with the beer, it's the aroma. Oktoberfest lagers are supposed to be fairly clean with no hint of esters or diacetyl. And, unfortunately this one had a very powerful ester aroma that was not appropriate for the style. I also felt it was hopped to have a noticeable hop taste which isn't appropriate for the style. It's a good beer but I didn't feel it was a good Oktoberfest. Otherwise it was a drinkable beer, and definitely had a lot of merit on it's own.
Serving type: on-tap
