Nice amber copper color with a thin head with short retention.
Sweet fruity aroma with notes of red apples, caramels and honey.
Flavor of caramels, floral and herbal hops masked by its malty base, red apples and toasted and roasted malts. Dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness.
Light to medium body with mild carbonation.
I found it a bit cloying given its sweetness level, despite of the help from its perceived hops.

I am very disappointed with this one - I always anxiously await the release of SA Oktoberfest, and have only been disappointed once, until now. This beer has nothing special about it, and quite frankly, is completely forgettable. I give it a 3 purely as a sign of respect to SA, because they generally do everything right.....Hey, everybody can have a bad day, and maybe it's just my palate, but I'm disappointed. Can't wait for the 2014 Christmas Ale to come out though! Love you Saint Arnold!
