3.51/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Poured into a nonic. Pours a clear orange-ish red with a creamy looking finger-and-a-half head. Head dissipates relatively quickly.

Aroma: Hearty malt notes. Fresh brown bread, caramel, milk chocolate-y notes, a touch of buttered toast.

Taste: Follows nose, though flavors blend together more . Very mild roasty astringency.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, light carbonation. Easy to drink, as an Oktoberfest beer should be.

Overall: Solid seasonal offering from Sam Adams, I have fond memories of this one and am glad to see it in cans. Perhaps not the best American interpretation of the style, but a certainly a worthy beer.
