355ml bottle poured into a 16oz pint glass.

A - Pours a clean, rusty amber, with a moderate head of fizzy foam. The head settles to a thin skiff of suds, leaving minimal lacing behind.

S - Lots of toasty, sweet malt, with some nutty and mildly spicy qualities coming through. A good balance of caramel malt and mild earthy hops.

T - Comes across the palate very malty, with the hops adding a mild herbal earthiness at the end. Sweet, toasty grains, crystal malt, spice, and light nutty notes. Some off notes here and there, but overall a drinkable, malty brew.

M - Medium bodied, with a nice, assertive carbonation. Finishes a bit dry, with a lingering hop presence, though subtle.

D - I'm certainly no expert on this particular style, but what better way to familiarize myself with it than reviewing the most popular Oktoberfest on the market. While this wouldn't be my first choice for a fall brew, I found it enjoyable enough.
