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.

This was one of those special times where the beer was extra special delicious. Had it on tap at the White Palm in Topton, Pa
Watery mouthfeel with a clean finish, traces of brown bread, yeast. I tried the bottled version, and its close but not the same.
