Head formation and retention was low. Good color though. Copper with good clarity.

Sweet. Some grain. Little, if any, hops.

Malty, of course. Bready and a little bit caramelly. Lightly hoppy on the finish. Finishes rather short, with slightly musty grain and some earthy hops. It tastes like it's supposed to and all, but it's a bit bland.

The body is on the lighter side, making for a quaffable beer. That's what I want from an Oktoberfest. Really smooth carbonation.

I want to dock points for the incorrect spelling of Oktoberfest. But this is their thing I guess (Double Bock). It's a drinkable beer. I could have a few in a sitting. Not something I'd run out and buy annually, but it's competently done, and cheap, and better than some other common ones.
