3.1/5 rDev -15.5%
Appearance: Clear amber (about an 18 SRM),three finger bone white soap bubble head, good lacing, lots of carb.
Smell: Medium roasted malt, light doughy yeast, light dark fruits, caramelized sugars, light floral/herbal.
Taste: Medium roasted malt, doughy yeasty, dark fruits, honey, earthy, herbal. Body is a little watery even for a lager, carb is good.
Final Thoughts: It's an okay octoberfest. It just seems like just another one in the crowd to be honest. I always hear how good this one is, can't say I'm impressed.

3.43/5 rDev -6.5%
.75 fingers whitish head. Minimal lace, red-amber body.
Smell is light malt and crisp, with a hint of apple.
The taste is mellow, full of amber malt with only enough hop spice to keep it interesting.
Mouthfeel is smooth but a bit coarse and foamy.
It's a good Oktoberfest, but then again, it's hard to be 'great' in this style (though Heavy Seas Prosit comes pretty close). Perhaps not as nice tasting as some of the Germans, but generally better smelling.
