Served from the bottle into a nonic glass.

A- Poured a dark and clear reddish color with a small off-white head that left no lace.

S- Big bready notes, caramel, toasted malt, grainy notes, and nutty notes.

T- Big caramel and butterscotch, bready notes, graininess, and light fruity notes.

M- Dry, medium body, soft carbonation, and smooth.

O- A really solid Oktoberfest beer with a nice flavor and aroma. Also a really good value.

The caramel notes predominate. Almost a little too sweet.
