Single bottle from the LCBO - someone had pilfered all but a couple of the bottles of a sixpack, so I bought the remainders.
Poured into a dimpled stein. Deep amber-caramel brew, good frothy head, a thick ring survives.
Nose is bread, malt, caramel, a bit of hops.
Tastes like a standard marzen - big malty flavor, lots of bread and the tiniest hint of lemon. Light hops to the finish. A good fall quaffer.
Good mouthfeel on this - drinks easy, has a mild carbonation, but has decent body.
Nothing special about this - few Oktoberfests are - but a damned drinkable brew. That's what you want for an Oktoberfest brew, and this one works well enough.
