This is a decent Oktoberfest. I've had better, but this one was definitely worth trying. The beer pours to a clear golden orange color. Decent carbonation. The head is fairly small and drops to a thin film in less than a minute. No lacing.
The smell is good. A good mix of biscuit and caramel malt aromas. A light bit of hops. Kind of an odd sweetness to it, accompanied by that distinct lagery aroma.
The taste is good as well. Biscuity up front followed by a gentle caramel sweetness in the early finish. Not quite as sweet as the nose suggests. The late finish shows the hops, albeit just a little. Just a touch of vegetal lager yeast flavors.
The mouthfeel is thin and crisp. Good balance between sweetness, toastiness, and bitter hops. Could stand to be just a tad bit more drinkable, but it was worth trying.
