Light amber in color with great clarity, nice fluffy white head and great lacing down the glass. Aromas of honey, clean husky grains, sweet malt, floral hops and raisin. Aromas are faint but worth the effort to pull out. Taste is malt forward with some of that honey and a floral presence up front. Sweetness from the malt barely kept in check by the hops floral and spicy in there own right. Finish brings sweet malty notes and some of that raisin and fig from the nose. Light yet chewy body costs the palet on the finish. Overall, this is the best oktoberfest beer I've had yet. Lovely malt flavors compliment the season and stay true to the style.

500 ml bottle was poured into a Hoegaarden 0.33L glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a copper orange color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Caramel, toffee, toasted, bready, doughy, and Noble hops.

Taste: Definitely malt forward like the style should be with hops in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, crisp, light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, slight bitterness, and a little chewy.

Overall: I always say Germans make the best Oktoberfest and this is another that stands up to the phrase. Definitely will be enjoying more of these. It has been some time since the last one.

Great Octoberfest beer. Malt sweetness, tastes more like an ale than a lager. Good thick mouthfull with a nice head and lacing. It was great with Knockwurst and German pretzels that I went out of my way to buy to accompany it. If you want to have a little backyard Octoberfest do yourself a favor and buy or make some German food to go with it. Good pairing is Knockwurst, Red Cabbage, and fresh made German PRETZELS!

On tap at Specialty Beer Cellar. Served in a hefe glass.

Appearance - Clear amber body with a big white head.

Smell - Bready. A little caramelly. Some floral notes.

Taste - The floral notes come out up front. Kinda sweet. Breadiness is stronger later. Dries out in the back end.

Mouthfeel - Very drinkable. Medium body and kinda sweet, but never gets heavy.

Overall - I thought it was too floral at first, but it keeps things interesting and it's extremely drinkable.
