look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A. Very deep red-brown color. It's opaque. There a good tan foamy head that leaves a good amount of lace.

S. Alcohol scent. Very thick maltiness.

T. High octane brew. The alcohol is present. Taste kind of like a pumpkin-saison.

M. Definition of full-bodied.

O. I'd have to have a taste test, but right there as the best Oktoberfest I've ever had.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance - Pours a VERY dark amber color, almost brown looking.. with an inch thick, creamy off-white head that dissipates quickly. Has pretty nice lacing.

Smell - Caramel, brown sugar, nuts, and toffee.

Taste - Similar to smell.. Toffee, caramel, very malty, and toasty. Maybe some clove..? There's some spices that I can't point out.

Mouthfeel - Thick body with mild carbonation.

Overall - This is a lot different than most of the other Oktoberfests I've had.. almost like a different style. It's not bad, but it wouldn't be my first choice.

look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: When poured into a pilsner glass the beer is brown in color with a nice off white head approaching 2 inches in height. Head has good staying power, eventually fading to a cover on the liquid with lacing down the glass.

Smell: Light in the aromas. There is some caramel malt, with a slight nuttinessto it, nothing much else stands out.

Taste: Some decent maltiness no cloying sweetness (lightly sweet caramel and malts). A slight bitterness as I swallow the beer down. Kinda like an Oktoberfest Light beer.

Mouthfeel: A little lighter in body than I would like. Well carbonated, lively on the tongue.

Overall: October is well in the rearview mirror ,but I had been saving a few O-fest beers waiting for the right time to review them. This is a good, easy drinking beer. A very approachable Oktoberfest beer, one to introduce a person to the style. I will likely look for this again next year.
