Pours a great deep orange/copper color. Off white head,a little soapy. Nice visible carbonation racing up the glass, little sticking to the sides of it.
Aroma is a little soapy and mineraly. Usually not the case in SA beers. Otherwise just light of toasted malt.
As far as taste goes, this is one of my favorite Oktoberfests made by any brewery. It's like a smooth munich/vienna malt milkshake. Tastes of toasted malt with a very heavy body that makes you really in the mood for fall. Some candy-like sweetness. Finishes very clean and heavy with a slightly sweet hop aftertaste.
I'd say the only things this beer lacks is some aroma and a more authentic German feel. That being said, I truly enjoy the heavy mouthfeel of this beer and it's one of my favorites that I wait for every year.
