look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

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.
