A pleasant surprise. I haven't particularly enjoyed the last few Oktoberfest beers I've tried, but this beer was nice. Nicely balanced I guess, and although it had the same notes of nuts and spice as the other Oktoberfests I've tried, it lacked the unpleasant aftertaste I've picked up in other brands. This beer actually had some nice complexity to the taste - roasted malts, nuts, spice? and hops. I had about given up on the style, but this shows what is possible with it.
