3.75/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Deep and hearty auburn to Brown color, the head was relatively thick, mounted for some time and stayed atop the beer for several minutes.

The scent is sweet, with sour grains, caramel malts, bran and pecan.

The taste is nicely sweet, not sugary, with a toasty grain and pecan flavor. There is a roasted or kilned taste with malts and toast. The feel is airy and refreshing with a light carbonated ease.

I've had this on draft and in bottle, this review is based on a bottle, and prefer the draft but find this to be a satisfying example of an Oktoberfest.
