look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Amber. Nice head at first.
Smell: Malty and bready.
Taste: Malty.

It's a decent Oktoberfest. Malt is the driving force here. It's drinkable and enjoyable, and I'll still get it again next year. However, it's certainly not the gold standard.
