On tap at the Addison Flying Saucer.
The beer pours a reddish-amber color with a white head. The aroma is classic Marzen. I get a whole lot of toffee and bread as well as some grapes - which I get in almost every German lager. The flavor is more of the same with a ton of malt. This is a malt bomb of a beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Another very nice beer from Live Oak.

Poured into a pint glass Orange with a thin white head. Good lacing all the way down.
I was in a bar, so my already weak nose can't give a review of this.
The taste was full of malts with a nice orange spice. The end of the palatte had a nice hop bitterness to finish.
The body was very full for the style which was a nice bonus.

Best Octoberfest I have ever had (probably due to freshness). It had about a half inch head that lingered for 5 minutes or. (I took my time) I have never seen a head like that on a lager style beer. Fairly strong okfest, ABV wise... I would guess %6-7.
There was a lot going on flavor wise. As the beer warmed a little, the flavor of apples an other fruits became more prominant... Live Oak has got to start bottling!

I had this on tap at two locations last week during my trip to Texas. The first pint I had was at the Flying Saucer in San Antonio.
The beer was surprisingly smooth and had a malty flavor with a hint of caramel. Although I wasn't having it with food, I think it would have gone quite nicely with a burger or meat, maybe a stew even.
I'm not typically into most "Oktoberfest" brews, but this one was very drinkable.
The second place I had it was at the Shady Grove in Austin. Just as good as the first time, I was very impressed with it.

Served on-tap at B.B. Rover's in Austin. Arrived in a pint glass a clear, orangey-red with a thin layer of head; reported to be the last glass from the keg. For an octoberfest, the smell surprised me with notes of vanilla, bread, and lightly sweet malt.
Taste continues the same theme of a subtly sweet beer with honey, vanilla, a little clove, and call me influenced by the name, but almost a gentle woody note. Even tasted a little bubble gum from time to time. This Octoberfest isn't thick and syrupy sweet, like some, nor is it more pale lager than octoberfest, like others. Body is smooth and refreshing the whole sip through.
Really a drinkable beer. I'll have to try it again, but the flavors were just excellent.

One of the seasonal craft brews available on tap, enjoyed at the Ginger Man on a trip to Dallas.
Brownish amber color with a thin cream colored head. Foam shrank away quickly leaving minimal lace. Nice smell, nutty and slightly sweet caramel aromas. Malty sweetness with hints of smoke and toasted bread. A touch of fruity hops balancing the finish. Average body and mouthfeel, smooth going down. I thought this was a very good Oktoberfest, flavorful and drinkable.
