Rather a traditional O-fest which to me means a very nice drinkable session beer but rather uninspired. I prefer several American takes on the style, such as Flying Fish Oktoberfish, which have a nice hoppy aftertaste. Not too much hop, enough to keep it very drinkable yet be a little more interesting.
The SA O-fest is very traditional as I said, very drinkable - I could see myself drinking 5-6 of these over a several hour period, but it was not especially interesting. Maybe in a big tankard with the bottom getting warm before you get to it, it might be more interesting. In a 16oz serving, it went down quickly and unmemoraby.
Serving type: on-tap
